Harry Styles is livid after photos of his private vacation with Kendall Jenner have surfaced online, according to reports.
It’s not the photos themselves that Harry is angry about, but instead the fact that his mother was attacked by a cyber hacker.
According to reports, the photos of Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner were released after a hacker targeted the iCloud belonging to Harry’s mother. The photos leaked show the One Direction singer and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star during their private moments during a December vacation to St. Barts. At the time, a few photos of Kendall and Harry were made public by the media, but the pair’s private photos remained private.

A source told Hollywood Life that Harry is angry because his mother doesn’t live in the public eye, and as such shouldn’t have to worry about her personal files being compromised.
“[Harry has] always been very protective of his mom and the fact that Anne has became the target of hackers does upset him. He’s the famous one, so he expects to be fair game, but she’s not in the public eye and that makes him angry that someone would mess with her.”
Fortunately for Harry and Kendall, the photos leaked online don’t show anything inappropriate. In one photo, the bikini-clad supermodel is sitting on Styles lap, and in two others Kendall and Harry are sitting close to one another looking cozy and comfortable.

The Hollywood Life source said that, aside from his disgust about his mother coming under cyber attack, he isn’t too concerned about the actual content of the photos being leaked.
“Harry’s brushing this off as just one of those things, it’s not affecting him. While they were private photos, and not meant to be seen by anyone else other than his close friends and family, there was nothing incriminating in them that could hurt him or his image, which means he’s not really bothered personally.”
Sure, the photos aren’t compromising in any way, but it’s obvious that the photos were meant to be private. They haven’t been posed, edited, cropped, or anything else that fans have come to expect from photos shared by members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

After Styles and Jenner visited the Caribbean together, rumors swirled about whether or not the young-and-famous stars would become a long-term, hot pair. In the months since their trip the relationship seems to have cooled down, with some outlets reporting that Kendall and Harry are no longer dating. Other outlets speculate that the couple may be dating privately — especially after Kendall’s good friend Selena Gomez said earlier this month that Kendall is “not single.”
Before the trip to St. Barts, Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles were believed to have hooked up briefly in 2013 and 2014, though the relationship turned out to be short lived.
