The Harry Styles and Taylor Russell dating rumours ramped up last summer when the pair were spotted spending time together in London and Vienna. By October, things were reportedly getting 'very serious' between the couple, and by the end of 2023 Harry and Taylor were said to be living together while the Canadian actor was in the UK.

However, this weekend the news broke that Harry and Taylor have reportedly gone their separate ways after 14 months together. The former couple had last been spotted together in April as they spent time in Tokyo, but their trip to Japan was allegedly a 'make or break getaway' and the pair have decided to end their relationship.

According to one source, Harry and Taylor were going through a challenging period in their relationship and ultimately decided to call it quits. The insider told The Sun: "Harry and Taylor have ended their relationship. They went through a rough patch after their trip to Japan and are taking some time apart. He's been in America and she's been in London. They made a lovely couple and it was obvious Taylor made Harry happy. Things have become strained recently though and they’ve taken some time out."

The news comes just months after the MailOnline reported that Harry was ready to settle down and start a family with Taylor, as a source had claimed in March: "Harry feels as if he has lived ten lifetimes already, but one thing is certain – his 30s will be nothing like his 20s. He has experienced all the fame anyone could ever want. He is now ready for the next chapter. He is in love with Taylor. He wants a family with her and this is the next phase of his life."

At the Met Gala earlier this month, the Bones and All star attended the event alone while Harry stayed in London. The pair have not commented publicly on the reports that they have broken up, but considering that they kept their relationship out of the spotlight it's highly unlikely that they will.
