Styles broke Swift’s heart too

And Finally

Harry Styles

Taylor Swift was left “heartbroken” by that Harry Styles fella earlier this year, according to the tabs, when they had a brief fling while One Direction were in the States, but then he was snapped kissing model Emma Ostilly just days after leaving the country.

A source has told the tabs that “Taylor really liked Harry and he hinted at making their relationship official”, but then shortly after the 1D boy had arrived in New Zealand he texted Taylor “telling her not to believe everything she reads”, leading her to Google where she saw the pictures of Styles and Ostilly together (pictures that came as a bit of a shock to Ostilly’s boyfriend too).

That said, Swift soon got over her brief liaison with the 1D heartthrob and hooked up with Conor Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy Jr. And this is all coming out now because the singer apparently met up with Styles again, briefly, while over in the UK two weeks ago, though it’s not known what she had to say to the top pop womanizer.

Meanwhile, Robbie Williams has said that he sympathises with Styles, because when he was a teenager in a chart-topping boyband it was easier to avoid public scrutiny by choosing to party away from the tabs and the paps. But in these days of camera phones and social networks, it’s impossible to hide from the public glare.

Now Magazine quotes Williams as saying: “I feel a bit for Harry. At his age I was in this lilywhite boyband Take That. But I was meeting up with mates, jumping out of the tour bus, and I would get off my face and have complete anonymity. No one had a camera phone so I could go and enjoy myself properly. Harry is finding out it’s not so easy for him”.
