One Direction star Harry Styles appears to have a preference for older women when it comes to dating, as the teenage heart throb has been linked to another high profile woman that is more than twice his age.
The 18-year-old boy band member was reportedly recently spotted with Australian pop star Natalie Imbruglia, 37, at a mutual friend's wedding. The pair allegedly stayed at the same hotel and the following morning, were seen at a scheduled breakfast together.
"Everyone was talking about how Harry was really smitten with Natalie. They got on like a house on fire and were clearly very into each other. The next morning Harry was given a grilling by the other guests. He was overheard telling one that he thinks Natalie is an amazing woman," a source reportedly told the Daily Mirror U.K.
Prior to Imbruglia, Styles had a relationship with 32-year-old DJ Lucy Horobin for just a few weeks when he while he was still 17. The pair reportedly met on Manchester U.K. radio station Key 103 and the fling reportedly almost ended Horobin's marriage.
"Harry's got a record for pulling some of the most beautiful women in showbiz and couldn't resist Lucy's beautiful looks. He found her really witty," a source said.
"Lucy was going through a rocky patch with her husband. After only a year of marriage she had doubts over whether she had done the right thing. She had requested taking time out in their relationship and they were virtually leading separate lives," the insider added.
Styles eventually began dating TV host Caroline Flack, 32, despite a 15-year-age gap, which ultimately ended his short fling with Horobin.
"Harry just happened to be in the right place at the right time. He charmed his way into her life and brought a little bit of excitement with him. Lucy was confused about her feelings for her husband. They were still living in the same house but not actually living as a couple," the confidante explained.
