Taylor Swift’s new guy has something in common with the country music star.
Harry Styles, the 18-year-old member of boy band One Direction, shares Taylor Swift’s affinity for serial dating, moving on from one relationship to the next with little room for a break. The pair had been dating earlier, but reportedly split up when he cheated on her.
As the San Francisco Examiner noted, Taylor Swift’s new guy is also known as something of a player. Harry Styles was referred to as a Romeo by the UK’s The Sun. The publication also called Harry Styles as a “womanising 18-year-old love god.”
Taylor Swift and her new guyhaven’t gone public yet with their romance, but have been seen together many times. On his 104.3 MY FM radio show, host Mario Lopez said that he saw Taylor Swift cozying up to her new guy.
“Taylor Swift was the special guest performer, and [here's] a little inside scoop for you,” Lopez told his listeners. “During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, ‘Hey, Mario, how ya doing?’ And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor.”
“The Red singer and the British boy-bander “walked off hand in hand,” Lopez added, announcing, “So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction — you heard it here first. [They're] officially hanging out, I can say that much.”
Taylor Swift’s new guy comes soon after her split with the latest in a series of boyfriends, summer fling Conor Kennedy. The pair announced their split a few weeks ago, citing differing schedules that kept Taylor away from her high school boyfriend for too long.
