One Direction‘s Harry Styles was snapped as he arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport on a flight from Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday (November 16).
But it looks like Harry forgot something back in the U.S. – Taylor Swift! Rumors of a romance between the two have been heating up, with eyewitnesses saying they were especially close during Taylor‘s X-Factor rehearsal on Thursday in L.A.
A source told E! News that Harry even sat with Taylor‘s mom during the rehearsal. “Harry is in her group. He watched her on stage going through her performance. He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage. After she finished, he went up to the stage,” the source said.
“They were joking and laughing. He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off.”
And tweets from X Factor hinted at a flirtation between the 22-year-old and the 1D heartthrob. “Together in the lunch line (Cheeseburgers) laughing & smiling was @Harry_Styles & @taylorswift13! 🙂 #internationalpoproyalty,” a staffer wrote.
Another tweet from an X Factor account confirmed the couple’s unusual exit: “I saw @Harry_Styles throw @TaylorSwift13 over his shoulder to carry her out of her #xfactor rehearsal today! #CuteFactor.”
Harry and Taylor were linked briefly earlier this year, but that ended abruptly when Harry was spotted on a date with model Emily Ostilly.
