Who is Harry Styles dating? Everyone's dying to know more about the former One Direction star's love life, especially after his much-publicized split from Olivia Wilde and those recent paparazzi photos of the "As It Was" singer hand-in-hand with a certain young actress. 

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 Styles stans of the world are naturally very invested in his relationship status, 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, it appears that the performer is currently spending time to 29-year-old Canadian actress Taylor Russell, who was last romantically linked to her Bones and All costar Timothée Chalamet.

On Sunday, September 24, the talented twosome was spotted walking hand-in-hand during a coffee run in North London. And it's far from the first time that Styles and Russell have been caught by paparazzi together—the Grammy winner and the actress have been linked since June, with Russell popping in the VIP section of Styles' Love on Tour show in Vienna in July, and the singer returning the favor a month later at the opening night of Russell's play, The Effect, at The National Theatre in London. 

What is Harry Styles' dating history?

Well before his relationships with Taylor Russell and Olivia Wilde, Harry was linked to a number of other notable names, including pop superstar Taylor Swift and French model Camille 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.

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!"

6. 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 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 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.

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, 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."
