Is Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal's reported engagement a Mastermind love story?
London, UK - Singer Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal are reportedly heading down the aisle – and fans are fawning over the "mastermind" behind it all!
Engagement rumors have been surrounding the couple for a while now, and fans went into a frenzy last month when a Twitter account, purportedly belonging to The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, appeared to confirm that Bridgers was engaged to the 26-year-old actor.
The Guardian's profile of Mescal, published on Sunday, provided further evidence that the rumors are true.
Writer Aaron Hicklin noted that Mescal's short-lived time on social media included an exchange of flirtatious messages with the 28-year-old musician.
A brief aside said that the pair are now engaged, but it has since been updated to come just shy of a confirmation, with the statement now saying that they are "reported to be engaged."
Fans love Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal's love story
Amid the engagement speculation, fans are recounting the rather epic way Bridgers and Mescal's romance came to be.
Back in 2019, Mescal tweeted a screenshot of his Spotify Wrapped with none other than Bridgers placed at the top spot.
A year later, the Graceland Too singer tweeted her praises of Normal People, which Mescal aptly responded to by writing, "I'm officially dead."
The pair then appeared in an adorably awkward Instagram live stream, where fans quickly called out their flirtatious back-and-forth.
Though the two remain pretty private, Bridgers has shared sweet snaps of the pair on social media over the course of their two-year relationship.
Several new TikToks have cleverly paired their love story with a snippet of Taylor Swift's Midnights track Mastermind. The song has been used in a viral trend that has creators revealing the vast lengths they went to in order to get their crush's attention.
Manifestation or not, Bridgers and Mescal's unconventional start is truly one for the ages.
