Some One Direction fans will no doubt react badly to the news that singer Harry Styles has a new girlfriend…
Which is why he’s desperate to keep her identity a secret, so as to shield her from the abuse that any girl who’s romantically involved with one of the band members gets from jealous Directioners…
Harry confirmed the news that he has a new girlfriend while speaking to Fabulous magazine. He was asked if there was “anyone in his life who could become more significant”, to which he replied, “There is. I’ve got someone that I like, yeah.”
And a source close to Harry told The Sun, “Harry has a new girlfriend. It’s someone he’s known for a while.
“He knows all the tricks and decoys now, so he’s doing well keeping her out of sight.
“It’s early days but they’re getting on really well — and the fact he’s flown her to New York shows how keen he is.
“He’s introducing her as his girlfriend to the camp.
“They seem very well-suited and happy.”
The news of course comes hot on the heels of Harry’s band mate Liam Payne announcing that he’s now dating Sophia Smith – who’s been getting dreadful abuse on Twitter – and after 1D singer Zayn Malik became engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.
We reported yesterday that their band mate Niall Horan may be in a relationship with singer Ellie Goulding – but it’s also been claimed that she’s dating someone else but we await official word on that – and of course, final band member Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term relationship with Eleanor Calder.
However, as to the identity of Harry’s new lady, there’s speculation that it could be Alexis Allen, who, as we reported recently, he met when she attended one of the band’s gigs.
But the paper adds that whoever Harry’s mystery girl is, she isn’t the woman he was photographed with recently.
The article states, “He was snapped kissing a girl in a photo booth at the premiere after-party, but Bizarre can confirm that it’s NOT her.”
Well here’s hoping that whoever she is, the small minority of 1D fans who lash out in green-eyed monster mode leave her be.
For now, here’s a look at 1D attending the London premiere of their movie, This Is Us…
