Old Habits Die Hard… Harry Styles Allegedly Sent Mum’s Best Friend Dirty Texts

The former Blue Peter judge said the text messages were "disgusting".


Old habits die hard, as it looks like One Direction member Harry Styles has always had a penchant for the older women.

Style’s mum’s best friend Yvette Fielding has claimed Harry sent a string of “disgusting” text messages to her at the age of 16, but his spokesperson is denying all claims.

The now 44-year-old Fielding, a former Blue Peter presenter, has also claimed that 19-year-old Styles broke her son’s heart by abandoning their friendship when he found fame with One Direction on The X Factor.

Fielding said she and her husband had treated Harry and his mum Anne Cox out to dinner at a local Chinese restaurant when the cheeky teenager started sending her text messages from across the table.

“The last time I saw him we went for a Chinese, his mum and her partner, Robin, plus me and my husband, Karl.

“Harry was sending me disgusting texts from across the table. I can’t even repeat the words, they were so rude!”

She wouldn’t say what the messages read but said, “He’s a Romeo, he’s very romantic.

“When there’s a love interest, Harry will go all out to get the girl. He’s totally obsessed. I think that’s what Simon Cowell saw in him, the cheeky chappie charm.”

“The first time I met Harry, he did a sweeping bow and got down on his knees on the road,” she told Woman magazine.

“I thought, “what a joker, we’ll get on well”. When he came for tea, he loved pizza and chips and always put on these stupid voices.

One Direction have become official millionaires since they hit the big time in 2010. 

Bizarrely enough, Fielding also said, “He called me his second mum and he and Will lived in each other’s pockets, dressing and talking the same. In the car I’d put Elvis or Little Richard on and we’d sing along.

“Harry confessed that he wanted to be a singer, but thought he couldn’t make it. I told him to follow his dream.”

Since hitting the big time in 2010, Styles has dated Caroline Flack, 14 years his senior, and 32-year-old radio DJ Lucy Horobin.

Fielding continued to spill the beans about the Styles family.

“Anne’s life has changed dramatically, it’s like she’s won the lottery.” she said.

“One minute she was worrying about a kitchen extension, the next minute her son bought her a gated mansion. The kind that only footballers can afford!”

Last night a spokesman for Styles denied he had ever sent the text messages.

He said: “Harry has never sent any rude or inappropriate texts to Yvette Fielding.”

UPDATE: March 12th, 13:07: Yvette Fielding denies ever saying such a thing. 

Fielding told Heat World exclusively that the claims that Harry tried to seduce her aren’t true. 

“It’s all a load of rubbish, it’s ridiculous and I’m really upset about it. Of course it’s not true,” Yvette tells us.

A source close to the former Blue Peter presenter also told them, “She’s disgusted, she’s been completely misquoted. Harry never did that, he never said it. She’s upset, these are family friends.”
