- Harry Styles was spotted having coffee with an old friend in London Wednesday
- Styles and Ellis Calcutt allegedly dated in the early 2010s
- The sighting comes two months after Styles and Olivia Wilde called it quits
Harry Styles was spotted with his rumored former flame, Ellis Calcutt, in London Wednesday, two months after his breakup with Olivia Wilde.
The 28-year-old “As It Was” singer and his high school pal were photographed holding cups of coffee and chatting as they took a stroll in the city, Page Six reported.
They both kept it casual for the outing. Styles wore a black North Face puffer jacket paired with Nike joggers, black shades, white sneakers and a tote bag that appeared to be from his beauty line, Pleasing.
Calcutt wore a green turtleneck under a black peacoat, along with dark wash jeans and a beanie, as seen in the photos obtained by the outlet.
The Grammy winner and his old friend reportedly dated in the early 2010s after his brief romance with Taylor Swift, according to Page Six.
Back in 2012, Styles and Calcutt were photographed together in his hometown of Cheshire, England, grabbing coffee, the Daily Mail reported. But Calcutt insisted at the time that they were just friends and had not seen each other in a while.
“Wow, you people are so quick to make up rumors! Me & Harry went for coffee together as we haven’t seen each other since last year!” Calcutt wrote on social media in 2012 after their coffee outing, according to the outlet.
“We’re only good friends and have been since high school. I have a lovely boyfriend called Phil so you can stop spreading rumors about me and Harry dating each other because we absolutely are not!” she added.
It seemed that the pair were also just catching up during their latest outing as Calcutt hinted at being engaged in an Instagram post in March last year. She has yet to reveal the identity of her fiancé but shared a snap of them kissing.
In the post, Calcutt shared that she went on an “eventful hike,” adding a ring emoji in the caption.
Her London outing with Styles comes two months after news broke that the singer and Wilde called it quits after nearly two years of dating.
Styles and Wilde first met in 2020 on the set of their film “Don’t Worry Darling,” which she directed, Page Six reported.
They went public with their relationship after they were photographed holding hands at Styles’ manager’s wedding in January 2021.
But an unnamed source told People in November 2022 that the two stars were “taking a break” from the relationship. Styles was touring, while the 38-year-old filmmaker was focused on work and her two children, 8-year-old Otis and 6-year-old Daisy, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Jason Sudeikis.
“They’re still very close friends,” the source added, while an unidentified friend told the outlet, “Right now, they have different priorities that are keeping them apart.”
An unnamed source who spoke to Page Six clarified that there was “no bad blood between them” and suggested that the breakup was mutual.
“This is the longest relationship Harry’s ever had, so clearly they have a special bond,” the source said, adding that the distance had affected the “Don’t Worry Darling” co-stars’ relationship.
“It’s impossible to have a relationship when he’s in every continent next year [on tour] and Olivia has her job and her kids,” the insider claimed. “This is the right thing for both of them.”
