Remember when Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were hanging out with Taylor — without Harry? Turns out, Harry turned down the invite to Tay’s BBMA after-party! Did he want to avoid watching his ex pack on the PDA with her new man, Calvin Harris? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Is there still bad blood between exes Taylor Swift, 25, and Harry Styles, 21? After Taylor’s huge night at the Billboard Music Awards on May 17 with her new boyfriend Calvin Harris, 31, at her side, she threw a star-studded party which Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan were at — but not Harry! In fact, Harry was the one to turn down the invite, and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY tell you why.
Harry Styles Turned Down Taylor Swift’s Party Invite: Why He Didn’t Go
Don’t expect Harry and Taylor to become friends anytime soon.
“They have a good mutual friend in Ed Sheeran who has been trying to get all of them together to hang out. Ed doesn’t see any reason for them all not to be friends. He invited all of the One Direction boys and wanted Harry to join in, but Harry knew it would be awkward so he decided against it,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Sorry Haylor fans! Of course, given their complicated history we can imagine it would be uncomfortable for both Taylor and Harry to be at the same party — especially while Taylor is all about Calvin.
It’s great that Ed wants Taylor and Harry to become friends, but we can’t forget that Harry broke Taylor’s heart! As much as we would love to see them become friends, it’s probably better for both of their sakes that they keep their distance…for now. Taylor has finally gotten over Harry and is smitten with Calvin. We haven’t seen her this happy in awhile!
Turns out, Taylor was pretty happy with Harry witnessing her PDA with Calvin during the Billboard Awards.
“She was over the moon that Harry was there to witness how crazy she and Calvin are for each other,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “First of all, she was able to show Harry that, yes, she’s completely over him. Second, Calvin rocks her world, more than Harry ever did or could.”
Sounds like Harry choosing to decline the party invitation was a win-win for both — though we’re still holding out hope they can become friends one day!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Harry should have gone to Taylor’s party? Sound off below!
