Taylor Russell and Harry Styles Cozied Up to Each Other at the Opening Gala for Her Play 👀

No matter where you lurk (Reddit, Twitter, Twitter’s archnemesis Threads), there’s zero chance you haven’t heard rumors about Harry Styles dating Taylor Russell. Things we do know: The pair is presumed to be dating thanks to Taylor showing up at Harry’s show in Vienna and wandering around the city with him the next day. Things we don’t know: if they’re in a romantic situation or if they’re just friends who are into exploring Austria together.

Truly could go either way because at this point, neither Harry nor Taylor has spoken out about their vibes (and don’t expect them to anytime soon/ever), and sources have yet to emerge and spill details to a reputable outlet. But it’s pretty easy to jump to conclusions once you lay your eyes on a timeline, and speaking of…well, well, well, what do we have here?

November 2022

Harry and his longtime girlfriend Olivia Wilde break up after the most harrowing press tour society has ever witnessed.

Details on the breakup are pretty sparse, but one source tells People, “He’s still touring and now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A. It’s a very amicable decision. They’re still very close friends.”

Another insider who seems to know what they’re talking about muses, “Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart, The public pressure on them has been difficult. They’ve had ups and downs throughout the relationship.”

While all of this is going on, Taylor is on her Bones and All press tour with Timothée Chalemet, and fans are convinced they’re dating based on general vibes.

Harry is spotted “sloppily making out” with EmRata (who is, awkwardly, friends with Olivia Wilde) in Tokyo. A source chats to the Daily Mail about Harry and EmRata’s kiss, saying, “Olivia and Emily were friends, and this is a betrayal. Olivia does not want to be dragged into this mess and she refuses to go backward in her life. She is focused on her career and her kids and not giving this any more of her energy.”

Point is: Things in Harry’s love life are an absolute mess as of just a few months ago.

Taylor talks about relationships in an interview with The Face, saying "I’m never going to be volunteering all of my feelings. I’m somebody who, annoyingly, complicatedly, needs things to be asked and pulled from me to talk about it. But even then I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, is this too much? Is this too much?’ So I need a partner who is going to do that or else it’s never going to work.” Noted!

And that brings us up to date! We’ll be updating this as more info comes out.
