Who is Harry Styles dating? Everyone's dying to know more about the former One Direction star's love life, especially since his recent split from Olivia Wilde. Here's the scoop...
Though Harry Styles' iconic outfits get plenty of attention, his dating life often takes center stage, from his headline-making relationship with Don't Worry Darling's director, Olivia Wilde to his past fling with model Kendall Jenner—who recently sparked reunion rumors after she was spotted with Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber at one of Styles' LA shows.
The Style stans of the world are naturally very invested in his relationship status and after he scooped Album of the Year at the Grammys 2023, interest has once again spiked.
So, is Harry actually dating someone right now or is he single? Here's all the intel on the "Watermelon Sugar" crooner's love life, both present and past.
Who is Harry Styles dating right now?
So, who is Harry Styles dating? Well, we've got some wonderful news for Harry fans across the globe, it appears that the "Daylight" singer is single.
Following his split from Olivia Wilde in November 2022, Harry hasn't been linked to anyone—apart from a few reconciliation rumors entering the zeitgeist, between him and Kendall Jenner, following her own split from boyfriend Devin Booker.
This might come as surprising news to some fans, as he and Olivia appeared to be going strong after meeting on the set of Don't Worry Darling in 2021, despite the online discourse surrounding the film and their relationship, in general. So for anyone blindsided by this reveal, here's a lil' recap on their relationship and breakup...
Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde
Although they both kept relatively quiet about their relationship, in an attempt to keep it out of the spotlight—it's thought their romance began at the start of 2021, following Wilde's divorce from actor Jason Sudeikis in late 2020. The pair's relationship reportedly blossomed on the set of Olivia's Don't Worry Darling, where Harry had a leading role alongside actress Florence Pugh.
A source later confirmed to US Weekly (opens in new tab) that the two hit it off immediately while on set, saying that Styles brings out Wilde's silly side. Seems like a good recipe for romance!
Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde then seemingly made things official, when the two attended his agent's wedding together...in matching Gucci ensembles. The pictures naturally made the rounds online, with many theorizing that the pair were an item.
The relationship was not without its drama though—with their film project becoming the source of a lot of speculation in September 2022, especially at its debut at the Venice Film Festival. If you need to catch up on all the Don't Worry Darling drama—we've got you.
Then just two months later, People (opens in new tab) reported that Harry and Olivia were taking "a break" after nearly two years together A source claimed: "[Harry's] still touring and is now going abroad. She is focusing on her kids and her work in L.A. It's a very amicable decision."
Since then, the pair have not been spotted together—leading fans to believe that they've officially gone their separate ways.
What Harry Styles songs are about Olivia Wilde?
It's thought that a number of Harry's songs are odes to exes past, with many fans convinced that a few of the songs on his now Grammy-winning album are about his last girlfriend, Olivia.
On May 20, 2022, Harry's House, the artist's third album, finally dropped. And of course, we don't need to tell you that excitement abounded, particularly for Styles' One Night Only in New York concert.
Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to dissect the singer's poetic lyrics and with many concluding that "Cinema" and "Late Night Talking" all seem to be about Miss Wilde.
Some of the G-rated lyrics in "Cinema" allude to her film career:
I just think you're cool
I dig your cinema
Do you think I'm cool too?
Or am I too into you?
Then in "Late Night Talking," listeners suspect that some lines hint at their long-distance relationship:
I never been a fan of change
But I'd follow you to any place
If it's Hollywood or Bishopsgate, I'm coming too
To celebrate the release, Wilde also put a portion of Styles' song "Music for a Sushi Restaurant,” on her Instagram stories on the 20th. The snipped was accompanied by a few scenes from the 2018 film, Cold War.
What is Harry Styles' dating history?
Before his relationship with Olivia, Harry was also linked to a number of other notably names, including Taylor Swift and Camilla Rowe...
1. Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
We all knew Harry was trouble when he walked in. Taylor Swift had no qualms about dedicating a few heartbreak anthems to her 2013 relationship with the former boy bander, including her 2015 single entitled—duh—"Style."
But, in the event you were wondering after a Harry's House jam session, Harry Styles' "Daylight" is not about Swift.
"You're reading too much into it," Styles told Howard Stern in May 2022. "I'd love to tell you you're spot on, but no, sorry."
2. Harry Styles and Nicole Scherzinger
Harry appears to gravitate towards older women, and Nicole Sherzinger is one of them. They reportedly dated while he was 19 years old and she was 35 in 2013, having first met when the Pussycat Dolls singer was a judge on X-Factor while Styles was competing with the rest of One Direction back in 2010.
He was also previously linked to Erin Foster, Tess Ward, and Caroline Flack, all of whom were older.

3. Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner
The singer and supermodel Kendall Jenner were linked on several occasions, even having their own PDA-filled, paparazzi-snapped yacht sail back in 2015, but it seems that now the two are just close friends.
4. Harry Styles and Sara Sampaio
Styles was linked to the Victoria's Secret model—as well as her counterpart Georgia Fowler—in 2015, per Page Six (opens in new tab).
5. Harry Styles and Camille Rowe
Reportedly introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung, Styles and French model Camille Rowe dated for about a year, from summer 2017 to July 2018.
Several songs on Styles' sophomore album, Fine Line, are rumored to be about his relationship with Rowe and their subsequent breakup, including tracks "Falling" and "Watermelon Sugar."
The song "Cherry" even samples a voicemail Rowe left for Styles when they were together. In it, she says, "Coucou! Tu dors? Oh, j’suis désolée / Bah non, nan, c’est pas important / Bon allez … on a été à la plage, et maintenant on … / Parfait!" which translates to "Hey! Are you asleep? Oh, I’m sorry / Well no, nope, it’s not important / Alright … we went to the beach and now we … / Perfect!"

Is Harry Styles bisexual?
Much has been made of the androgynous star's sexuality over the years, with many questioning if Styles identifies as bisexual, pansexual, or queer. An infamous and long-running rumor about the singer is that he engaged in a romantic relationship with fellow One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson while they were part of the group, resulting in the ship "Larry Stylinson," however, both parties have debunked that as mere fan fantasy.
When asked about his much-scrutinized sexuality in a 2019 interview with The Guardian (opens in new tab), Styles said this: "It's not like I'm sitting on an answer, and protecting it, and holding it back. It's not a case of: 'I'm not telling you 'cause I don't want to tell you.' It's not: 'Ooh, this is mine and it's not yours.' It's: 'Who cares?' Does that make sense? It's just: 'Who cares?'"
"I think it’s a very free, and freeing, time. I think people are asking, ‘Why not?’ a lot more. Which excites me," said the singer, "It’s not just clothes where lines have been blurred, it’s going across so many things. I think you can relate it to music, and how genres are blurring…"
Regarding his oft-flamboyant, gender-bending wardrobe, Styles told The Guardian: "What women wear. What men wear. For me it’s not a question of that. If I see a nice shirt and get told, ‘But it’s for ladies.’ I think: ‘Okaaaay? Doesn’t make me want to wear it less though.’ I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier."
When the question of queer-baiting—teasing queer subtext as a mere marketing ploy—arose, Styles shot it down, replying: "Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No...In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve’s gonna be, I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with. I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool. And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality’s something that’s fun. Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that."
