Harry Styles and Taylor Swift reportedly broke up during a fight over New Year’s vacation. Source told Mail Online exclusively: ‘Yes I can confirm they have split up. They were on holiday and had an almighty row. They are two young stars at the top of their game so who knows what will happen in the future.’
After spending Christmas apart the pair had jetted off to the British Virgin Islands on New Year’s Day to spend some time together. But things did not go to plan and Taylor ended the holiday early, flying back to the US on her own after just three days on vacation on January 4. Taylor was spotted sitting alone on a boat, her hands in her lap, as she departed the island of Virgin Gorda.
Meanwhile Harry, 18, stayed on alone and lived it up, partying with fellow guests, and even fitting in a visit to Richard Branson, who owns a neighbouring a private island. ‘Richard Branson heard Harry was staying nearby so invited him to come check out Necker. So when Taylor left for the states, Harry went to Branson’s island for the day to let off some steam.’
On his short trip to Necker Island Harry ‘did plenty of partying’. He returned to Gorda in the early morning hours looking like he had a ‘raucous night.’ Photos showing an an apparently happy Harry living it up without his now ex-girlfriend were posted online by fans.
Her first message since New Year’s being on January 5 when she wrote: ‘..’til you put me down.’ It wasn’t until Monday that Harry returned from his vacation, three days after Taylor made her early exit. Harry continues his holiday after Taylor left early; seen here soaking up the sun alone on Sunday.
The glum looking star arrived at Heathrow airport journeying through the terminal with his entourage carrying his luggage as a group of screaming fans followed behind. He and Taylor were last seen publicly on New Year’s Eve, when they couldn’t have appeared closer.
As the clock struck midnight they rang in the new year by sharing a very public kiss under the bright lights of Times Square. Harry, who had jetted to New York just days before to ring in the New Year with his girlfriend, couldn’t resist giving her a passionate smooch as crowds of people swarmed around them.
Is it over? Taylor Swift and Harry Styles head into their hotel hand-in-hand moments after kissing each other in Times Square during their New Year’s celebration One person who might be happy about the split is Taylor’s father, who had been worried the two were moving too quickly.
Scott Kingsley Swift even ordered Harry to slow down his relationship with his daughter after reports the pair were talking about marriage. Scott reportedly told floppy haired Harry to ‘cool’ his romance with country princess Taylor after reports Harry told 23-year-old Taylor that he loved her during their break in Manhattan.
It is easier to see why her father was worried. Despite being beautiful, successful and in great shape Taylor does not have much look in her lovelife. She has been previously linked to Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and more recently Connor Kennedy.
