Swift encourages rumours of romance with 1D star
Taylor Swift is reportedly faking her relationship with One Direction star Harry Styles.
The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer is allegedly going along with rumours she is dating the 18-year-old British heartthrob in a desperate attempt to make her latest ex-boyfriend Conor Kennedy jealous so he will take her back.
A source told gossip website HollywoodLife.com: "She isn't denying in any way the reports of the people talking about her having a relationship with Harry because she wants to make Conor jealous and the way she thinks she is making him jealous is to show him that she has options, but in reality, she actually wants Conor and is just doing this to 'Wear the pants in the situation!' She has no interest in making the Harry thing work."
Taylor and Harry first dated in March 2012, after they met at the Kids' Choice Awards but split up after she saw pictures of him kissing another girl in Australia.
They reportedly rekindled their romance last month after being spotted holding hands at 'The X Factor' USA.
The 22-year-old singer spent much of the summer with Conor and even bought a house next to his grandmother's place in Massachusetts.
Taylor and Conor, 18, were first spotted together in July and the blonde beauty was said to have missed him so much when she left him to go home to Nashville over the summer that she chartered a private jet so he could visit.
