It has been said that the singers met around November 2012, with a photo of them taking a stroll in Central Park breaking the internet the following month, as fans freaked out over the superstar couple.

Their relationship came to an end after a few short months, with a number of songs from both artists leaving fans convinced they were written about one another.

Taylor famously released ‘Style’ as part of her '1989' album, which was heavily speculated to be about Haz, with the obvious comparison to the 1D star’s name, as well as the lyrics, “You've got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt, and I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt”.

Another track from that album, ‘Out of the Woods’ appears to be mentioning the famous aeroplane necklace that they were both spotted wearing at the time.

Many fans have also speculated whether Tay's 'Cardigan' was penned about Haz, with people drawing comparisons between the track's video and Harry's 'Falling' video.

Are Harry Styles and Taylor Swift still friends?

It wouldn’t be like either of the stars to address their friendship if they were still pals, as they have remained tight-lipped about their relationships in the past.

However, there appears to be no bad blood between the two, with Harry praising his ex for her songwriting skills in an interview last year.

Speaking on the Stern Show in March 2020, he was asked about how it feels to be the muse behind someone’s songwriting, before he referenced Tay’s songs about him, saying: “I think about what it means to me to write a song about somebody else and for somebody else to do that, it’s like flattering, even if the song isn’t that flattering, you still spent time on it and ultimately, using Taylor as an example, she’s a great songwriter. So at least they’re good songs.”

The ‘Adore You’ star and ‘Fearless’ songstress sent fans into meltdown on March 14 after they were spotted having the friendliest catch-up at The Grammys.

After both scooping an award that evening, the two were caught in conversation for a few minutes and fans were happy to see there was no bad blood between the two pop stars!

If that wasn't sweet enough, Tay was the first person to stand up and applaud Haz after he won his first-ever Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Watermelon Sugar' - we love to see it!
