One Direction management set up Harry Styles & Taylor Swift romance?

There have been a LOT of claims made about the love lives of the One Direction boys this morning and quite frankly, we don’t quite know what to believe.

Louisa Jepson has written a new autobiography about 1D hunk Harry Styles and in it claimed that he once shared a bed with his friend’s mum, adding that the group’s management actively encouraged him to date older women, suspecting that there would be less ‘fall out’ when the romance ended.

More shockingly, the author also claimed that One Direction’s management set up Haz’s recent romance with US star Taylor Swift, just so the band could benefit from increased publicity.

The pair dated for just over a month, from December 2012 until mid January and were spotted in new York, on a romantic holiday in The Lake District, skiing in Utah and lastly relaxing in the Caribbean, where they apparently had a huge row and broke up.

Tay Tay brought their so called romance into the spotlight again earlier this month, when she mocked Haz during a performance at The Grammy Awards but Louisa claims the whole thing was a fauxmance, masterminded by the X Factor star’s team.

Swifty was already well known as a serial dater and had relationships with a list stars Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal behind her. This made her the perfect 1D lady apparently and Louisa says sources claim the relationship was set up.

She says Harry’s handlers “went to great lengths to put the two ­together because she’s such a huge star”.

Jepson added:

“Anytime Taylor starts dating a new guy she gets a flurry of media attention, and her break-ups receive even more.”

If this is the case, it would explain the lack of animosity between the pair, as after watching Taylor perform at The Brits this week, Harry praised her telling the Mail Online:

“I thought her performance was really good, she looked great.”

Swifty has already moved on too and was spotted out on a date with Brit winner Tom Odell on Thursday night in one of Haz’s favourite London haunts.

What do you make of it all Directioners? Do you think Haylor could have been faked? Leave your comments below….
