Taylor Swift and Harry Styles’ Brief Relationship
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles first sparked dating rumors during the fall of 2012. Considering both of them were at the heights of their career, they soon became the talk of the town due to their alleged relationship. Soon pictures of the couple strolling around in Central Park broke the internet.
The pictures, which were released in December 2012, seemingly confirmed their relationship at the time. However, their relationship did not last long, as the couple called it quits just a month later. Then came respective songs from both of them, whose lyrics were seen as a reference to each other.
The Grammy-winning singer made several references to her ex in her 2014 album, 1989. One of the songs, titled “Style,” was highly speculated to be about the Don’t Worry Darling star due to its broad similarity with his name. Many also claimed that one of the songs from the 2015 One Direction album also refers to Styles’ relationship with Swift.
Fans also connected the lyrics of Harry Styles’ 2017 song Two Ghosts, to Swift’s 2015 song, Style. However, with time the duo seems to have grown out of their past relationship and have been spotted in what seems to be friendly conversations. But one of the things fans are still wondering about is the reason for their split.

Why Did Taylor Swift And Harry Styles Split?
While Styles and Swift tried to avoid talking about their relationship, Taylor Swift’s friend revealed some exclusive information to Vanity Fair in 2013. According to the friend, Styles tried to please the singer for nearly a year before they finally got close during a weekend in the Spring of 2012.
Problems continued to exist in their relationship. During One Direction’s Australia tour, Styles texted an image to the Red singer, saying, “Kissing a friend good-bye.”
However, the kiss seemed so much more than just a goodbye to Swift. According to her friend, the image showed them, “making out like with their hands all up in each other’s hair.” This led Swift to end things between them. But they got back together after the One Direction alum kept on pursuing her.
They got together again, before finally going their separate ways months after. Reports claim that the My Policeman star and Taylor Swift wanted to spend the New Year together after they spent Christmas of 2012 apart. So the couple decided to travel to the British Virgin Islands for the New Year.
But they ended up having an “almighty row” during their holiday. The couple had a huge argument, after which the All Too Well singer flew back to the USA just days after the New Year. But Styles chose to stay and even traveled to the Virgin Group founder Richard Branson’s island.
