Fans began speculating that Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are dating following reports that they were “growing close” on the set of Wilde’s new horror film Don’t Worry Darling.
The speculation gained traction after Styles, 26, and Wilde, 36, were photographed on Monday arriving at Styles’ home in Los Angeles.
The two were also recently seen holding hands at the wedding of Styles’ manager Jeffrey Azoff, according to TMZ.
“Olivia and Harry have become close and the pair have been spending a lot of time together in recent weeks,” a source told the Daily Mail. “She has been seen visiting his home on several occasions.”

Monsters and Critics reported in December that LaBeouf’s ex-girlfriend, the singer FKA Twigs (Tahliah Debrett Barnett), filed a lawsuit in a Los Angeles Superior Court, accusing LaBeouf of physically abusing her and infecting her with an STD.
