More ‘Haylor’ Date Pics: Harry Styles and Taylor Swift, Officially Together? [PHOTOS]
Photos of Harry Styles and Taylor Swift taking a stroll around central Park emerged all around the web and in every nook and cranny of celebrity gossip sites. Fans of the two have invaded Twitter with a hash tag that says "Haylor."
Harry Styles and Taylor Swift can ask Jelena to step back for a while. Fresh after their Central Park date, fans of Harry and Taylor have already made a joint name for the two, "Haylor."
Not many Harry Styles fans are thrilled; the same reaction can be said from Bieber's fans when he first started dating Selena Gomez. However, even if these teenage girls are praying that the rumors weren't true when it first came out, Harry and Taylor seem to have consciously taken a stroll to prove their romance.
Harry and Taylor were first linked earlier this year, before the country singer even started dating her recent ex-boyfriend, Conor Kennedy. Then just last month, Mario Lopez confirmed that the two were seeing each other after the host's encounter with Harry on the backstage of X factor.
"Taylor Swift was the special guest performer, and [here's] a little inside scoop for you. During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, 'Hey, Mario, how ya doing?' And I said, 'What are you doing here?' And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor," the host said his FM listeners.
"Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon. He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage. After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing," a witness told E! News.
While the rest of One Direction fans are hating, there's one person close to Taylor who has expressed her approval. Taylor's close friend, Abigail Anderson, retweeted, "So I'm not the only one who likes Haylor."
