One Direction heart-throb Harry Styles is almost as famous for his love life as he is for his music. Harry has left a trail of broken hearts in his wake since he shot to fame as part of the boy-band brought together during the 2010 season of Simon Cowell’s reality TV show X-Factor. During the show, the then 17-year-old Harry entered a relationship with Caroline Flack, a woman 14 years his senior and since that time Styles has rarely been out of the gossip columns.
Styles has famously dated models Kendall Jenner and Nadine Leopold, but it was Harry’s relationship with fellow pop star Taylor Swift that turned the gossip columns red-hot with speculation. Over the past weekend, Harry attended the Billboard Music Awards where he and band-mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne scooped both the “Top Group” and “Top Touring Artist” awards. Incredibly Harry and his pals have now scooped no less that 166 awards and 324 nominations in just over four years.
Of course Harry is always big news, sometimes for what he doesn’t do as much as for what he does. On this occasion the floppy haired lothario has hit the headlines because he was the only member of One Direction who did not attend Taylor Swift’s after show party.
The Washington Post reports that a source revealed that Harry did not think that attending the bash would be a good idea, so he flew back from Las Vegas to L.A. alone. A spokesperson for Styles told The Sun that “Harry didn’t stay in Vegas after the awards, so didn’t attend any after-show party.”
Despite Harry’s no-show at Taylor’s bash, Entertainment Wise report that his band mates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne all partied with Swift to celebrate her eight wins on the night.
Entertainment Wise also report that a source told Hollywood Life that Swift was delighted to show Harry that she is over him by cozying up to her new love Calvin Harris.
“Taylor has never been happier, and last night was her sweet revenge on Harry Styles. She was over the moon that Harry was there to witness how crazy she and Calvin are for each other. First of all, she was able to show Harry that, yes, she is completely over him. Second, Calvin rocks her world, more than Harry ever did or could.”
What do Inquisitr readers think? Is there bad blood between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift or was Harry simply being a gentleman by avoiding any awkwardness as Taylor celebrated a night of triumph at the awards?
