The 'One Thing' singer is said to have watched Taylor's performance on The X Factor USA last week.

One Direction's Harry Styles has reportedly started dating US pop star Taylor Swift, after flying out to watch her performance on The X Factor USA.

The 'Live While We're Young' singer has allegedly been seeing Taylor for the past few weeks and they were spotted "flirting" and "holding hands" backstage on the FOX talent show this past Thursday (15th November), where Harry was also believed to have been introduced to her mum.

"It was a big deal her inviting him to the show with her mum on Thursday," a friend of Taylor's told The Sun this week. "It was her way of showing she is ready to trust him."

"Harry turned up at rehearsals to watch Taylor," another source added. 'She delayed it 20 minutes to wait for him.

"He was sitting with her mum Andrea and she seemed won over too."

'One Thing' singer Harry first met Taylor at the Kids' Choice Award earlier this year, while Taylor is also good friends with Harry's pop pal Ed Sheeran, after the two recorded a duet for her new album 'Red'.

One Direction are currently on course to score their second number one on the US Billboard Top 200 next week with new album 'Take Me Home'.
