Teen heart throb Harry Styles was ensured that his fans are behind him as he was followed by a swarm of girls on his trip to record new material in a London recording studio.
The boy band member, 19, chatted to his fans as he made way to an Islington studio on Tuesday morning, averting all questions about his relationship status. Seen laughing and joking with the gaggle, the singer opted for a casual skinny jeans and hoodie combo for the session with his pals, putting all thoughts of Taylor Swift to the back of his mind.
The pair, who had been dating since November, were said to have encountered problems during their New Year break to the British Virgin Islands, where they were said to have had a row, according to the Daily Mail
It was a different story earlier, when - looking thrilled to be in one another’s company, the pair shared an intimate kiss at New York’s Times Square during the New Year and looked thrilled to be jetting off to their romantic break. Once in the tropics, the pair were seen hapily posing with numerous fans for holiday snapshots, but the romance soon turned sour as an argument erupted between the fledgling couple.
A source told the newspaper: "Yes, I can confirm they have split up. They were on holiday and had an almighty row. These are two young stars at the top of their game so who knows what will happen in the future."
The argument reportedly led Taylor to make a swift exit from the idyllic island, leaving the destination three days before her former flame. Harry didn’t let the departure ruin his fun, however, as he took a trip across to business mogul Richard Branson’s private island and relaxed in a hot tub amongst the billionaire's glitterati guests.
Whilst Harry enjoyed what Necker Island had to offer, Taylor has remained tight-lipped about the tumultuous romance. Shying away from Twitter, country belle Taylor has posted one cryptic message since the split. The artist referred to lyrics "til you put me down" from her hit song I Knew You Were Trouble on the social networking side, leading fans to believe that her whirlwind romance had met a similar fate.
With their million-pound careers, Harry and Taylor will have plenty of tasks to keep their minds off the rift. As Harry joins his pals for more fun in the studio, Taylor is set to make a red carpet appearance at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night.
