Taylor Swift Briefly Dated Harry Styles of One Direction
It's amazing that juicy gossip like this can remain secret for months in today's paparazzi-fueled world, but Radar Online is reporting that just before she started dating Conor Kennedy, Taylor Swift spent some time getting to know Harry Styles of One Direction, only to be let down when she discovered online pictures of him kissing model Emma Ostilly.
An insider told the site that Swift and the boyband teen idol dated casually in April. "Taylor really liked Harry and even though they weren't exclusive, he hinted at making it official with her just before he took off to Australia," the source said. "He even told Taylor he didn't want her to see anybody else while he was gone."
The problem came when Swift woke up one morning to a number of desperate messages she didn't understand. "Taylor had all these texts from Harry begging for a chance to explain and telling her not to believe everything she reads," the insider added. "She immediately Googled Harry and found all the stories and pictures of him kissing Emma. She was heartbroken."
Swift has moved on with Kennedy, although rumors surfaced earlier this month that she had scheduled a private dinner with an unknown member of 1D, widely assumed to be Styles. We may never know the purpose of that meeting, since the dinner was canceled.
If nothing else, this gossip gives us another name to toss into the mix when trying to figure out which guys Swift was writing about on her new album, 'Red,' which hits stores next Tuesday, Oct. 22.
