Taylor Swift, Harry Styles New Girlfriend?
After Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are over, is anyone ready for another pop superstar couple? One Direction's Harry Styles is rumored to be dating country singer Taylor Swift.
There had been rumors running around that Taylor has found new love in British boyband member Harry Styles. Just after breaking up with Connor Kennedy, is Taylor ready for another relationship? An insider tells that the Harry and Taylor are dating and were recently seen flirting backstage at X Factor.
According to several other sources, Harry joined Taylor's mother as they both sat to watch her do a sound check before she performs on the show. According to Mario Lopez, who apparently got the chance to talk with Styles backstage while Taylor was performing, the two are definitely seeing each other.
The host asked Harry what he was doing in the show and the teenage heartthrob pointed out to Taylor who was on stage singing. Although it might be a little too soon for Taylor to be dating again, Harry Styles looks like he's ready for a girl once more.
"Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon. And he is in her group. He watched her onstage going through her performance. He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage," a source told E! News.
"After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing. He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off," another eyewitness said.
Harry and Taylor were said to have secretly dated earlier in the year before Taylor got serious with Connor Kennedy.
"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,' a source said at the time. He even told Taylor he didn't want her to see anybody else while he was gone!" a source revealed.
