Harry Styles was asked to take a selfie with a fan at his grandmother’s funeral, his sister Gemma has revealed. We knew there were downsides to being famous, and here’s more proof of how hard it can be to maintain privacy when you’re a One Direction member.
Harry Styles’ sister, Gemma, was writing about the inappropriate EgyptAir selfie-with-a-terrorist which made news around the globe last week, on her blog in The Debrief.
Styles goes on to describe her “most frustrating personal experience,” which was when a “‘friend’/distant relative was trying to bring in her granddaughter or niece or someone to have a picture with my brother.” Gemma added the following.
“At a funeral. Our grandmother’s funeral. ‘Smh’ doesn’t really cover it.”
Harry and Gemma Styles’ grandmother passed away in 2014, and unfortunately this is only one of many disrespectful moments the siblings have had to deal with.
No Private Life
Earlier this year, a young woman was inundated with violent messages and even death threats after posting a selfie with Harry Styles, as the Daily Mail reported.
Amy Whelan had bumped into the One Direction singer while out doing her shopping and had snapped a quick picture with the start – only to be directly attacked by Harry Styles fans jealous of her luck.
Things often go very wild very quickly when Harry Styles is concerned – especially when he’s seen or pictured with girls who are automatically considered his latest conquests.
Some fans take Harry’s private life very much to heart and don’t hesitate to post comments and advice on social media as they feel personally involved with the singer’s love life. A famous example of this was when Harry’s mom, Anne’s, iCloud was hacked, with dozens of private photos of Harry and Kendall Jenner leaked online, as Inquisitr reported recently.

Harry has always been genuine and so loyal to us, he made us smile a lot of times.. if he’s dating Kendall, we should show him our support.

I’m going to act like I didn’t just see Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner kissing photos. I’m okay, everything is fine.

Taking Up Pilates
In other – and healthier – news, Harry has been going to pilates classes to help with legs and back issues. After 18 months, sources say he now “stands an inch taller,” and that Harry himself was amazed at the results.
It’s not the first time Styles was making an attempt at sorting out his back, and he had revealed in 2013 that he had attempted yoga already – instead of ballet as recommended by his osteopath. But he has now switched to pilates and is seeing incredible results.
Looks like the well-deserved break from One Direction is doing more good than we thought for 22-year-old Harry Styles, who’ll come back healthier and in better form than ever!
