According to The Sun, the pair’s dalliance was never anything serious, although the newspaper claims that they did hook up multiple times.
“Harry was obviously very taken by Nicole who is stunning and he had always looked up to her.”
The source goes on to say that due to Harry’s romantic history with women considerably older than himself, including Caroline Flack and radio DJ Lucy Horobin, the 15-year age gap was never an issue.
A friend of Nicole’s is also quoted as saying: “They did snog and got on well, but they never dated.”
Nicole was actually instrumental in Harry’s successful career, having put together One Direction from five solo artists while she was a guest judge on ‘The X Factor’ in 2010.
