Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated 1989 (Taylor’s Version) album was released on October 27, 2023, and included a previously unreleased song called “Is It Over Now?” Many Taylor Swift fans believe the song is about Harry Styles, whom she dated from November 2012 until January 2013. The song also appears to mention one of Harry’s lovers following Taylor, but who did he date after they split up?
Who Did Harry Styles Date After Taylor Swift?
In April 2014, E! announced that Harry, 19, was dating Kimberly Stewart, 33, the daughter of artist Rod Stewart. According to a source, the couple was “introduced by a mutual friend who set them up” and were “very happy” together. “Kim has a strong will and goes after what she wants, which Harry admires. “It’s a fresh concept, and we’ll see where it goes.” According to the insider, she is “exactly his type.”
Rod Stewart said Harry and Kimberly spent the night together during an appearance on Alan Carr’s chat show, Chatty Man. “His automobile arrived in the morning. “Say it this way,” he said. “But he may just have come around to pick something up.” “B*******, I let the cat out of the bag!” he shouted, realizing how much he’d given away. Harry could not be nicer. He’s a really funny guy.”
The lines that fans believe Shade Kimberly is from 1989 (Taylor’s Version): “Your new girl is my clone” from her new song “Is It Over Now”.
When Did Harry Styles and Taylor Swift Date?
Harry and Taylor apparently met backstage at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, when they were 18 and 22 years old, respectively.
They were last seen together in November 2012, when Harry paid a visit to the Love Story singer at her X Factor sessions.
Mario Lopez, the show’s host, verified seeing the teenage singers “hand-in-hand.”
A few weeks later, iconic photos of the couple on a date in New York City’s Central Park were taken, followed by several subsequent trips when spectators said they “definitely looked like a couple.”
They celebrated Swift’s 23rd birthday in Northern England, went on a Christmas skip trip in Park City, Utah, and kissed at midnight in Times Square before going out on a Caribbean vacation together.
In a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, Harry stated of their Central Park date, “When I see photos from that day, I think: Relationships are difficult at any age.”
“And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier.”
