A few weeks ago, Harry Styles played the Heart Rate Challenge with radio host and BFF Nick Grimshaw, who grilled him on a number of things. Throughout the segment, we learned that Harry’s heart spikes when someone mentions Ryan Gosling and really gets going if you bring up Chelsea boots.
But in the mix of questions was Camille Rowe, who walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2016. Of Camille, who is also an actress, Harry told Nick that “I don’t know her,” but added that “I’m sure she’s wonderful. I’m sure she’s a wonderful person.”
Now, however, The Sun is reporting that there could be more to this than people first thought. The paper published photos of Styles and Rowe at a party together in New York City over the weekend of July 28. What’s more, a source told them that “Harry and Camille are in the early stages of dating. He’s very protective of his relationships so isn’t going to want to make a big show of things. They are well suited and seem happy.” The source added that “She’s a real star on the rise” and Harry “seems besotted.”
Given that all of these comments came from an unnamed source and not from Styles or Rowe themselves, it’s important to take these rumors with a grain of salt. After all, being photographed together at a party means, generally, that you were photographed together at a party, no more. And there’s nothing wrong with that, either — everyone needs friends, and having friends that go to parties with you almost guarantees you’ll have a good time. Reading any further is dangerous, and until Harry or Camille set the record straight, we don’t know what — if anything! — is going on.
Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped Harry’s fans from heading into Camille’s mentions and leaving a number of snake emoji and other comments. Others are leaving comments alleging that “Larry” — the ship name for Harry Styles and One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson — is “real”, even though Louis dispelled that rumor again last week.
“People can believe what they want to believe, but I just think it comes across some times as a little bit disrespectful, to the ones that I love,” he said.
The comments come in stark contrast to #RespectHarry, a hashtag that was trending last week after several fans reportedly showed up at Harry’s door with flowers. At the time, fans implored each other to:
“Respect his privacy Respect his sexuality Respect his girl friends Respect his family Respect his band mates Respect HIM.”
That respect should extend to Camille Rowe, whether or not they are dating.
