On Feb. 5, 2014, Haley Giraldo went on her official Twitter account to deny a Star magazine report that she and One Direction's Harry Styles are having a "secret" romance. Giraldo tweeted: "Where do they come up with such crazy stories with zero merit! You keep your personal life private, and people just make up their own stories!"
Giraldo (who is 29) is one of the daughters of Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, who have been spouses and musical partners since the 1980s. A former Miss Golden Globe, Haley Giraldo was also a cast member of the short-lived 2005 reality show "Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive," which featured children of celebrities working at a Colorado cattle ranch.
Star magazine reported on Feb. 5, 2014 that Styles has been allegedly cheating on Kendall Jenner with Haley Giraldo.
According to Star, on Jan. 26, 2014, Styles "was videotaped leaving Swingers restaurant with a mystery blonde. Waiting in his black SUV was another mystery woman, who Star can exclusively reveal was 29-year-old Haley Giraldo, the daughter of 80′s rocker, Pat Benatar. A friend of Harry’s tells us that he met Haley at a One Direction concert in Los Angeles last year, and that they see each other secretly whenever he’s in town."
The unnamed source told Star: “They talk almost every day when he’s home in London, and he sends Haley lots of romantic gifts. They’ve been trying to keep it on the down-low.”
This tabloid report came just a few days after the Sunday People (a British tabloid) published a dubious story that Styles spent his 20th birthday (on Feb. 1, 2014) with Kendall Jenner (who is 18) at her father Bruce Jenner's mansion in Malibu, Calif., where she supposedly had a romantic birthday celebration for him.
The problem with the Sunday People's story is that Kendall was actually 3,000 miles away in New York City on Styles' 20th birthday, as evidenced by media photos taken of her that day.
Ironically, one of the cast members of "Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive" was Kourtney Kardashian, one of Kendall's sisters.
As previously reported, Styles refuses to be on the Kardashian/Jenner family's reality shows such as "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
Kendall and Styles have been seen on "dates" since November 2013, although they will not publicly confirm or deny that they are a couple. Ever since he found worldwide fame with One Direction (the biggest selling global act from "The X Factor"), Styles has refused to publicly name anyone whom he has dated since he became a celebrity. Many fans of One Direction are saying that Styles' relationship with Kendall is being faked as a "romance" for publicity purposes. When stories about Styles' "intimate dates" with Kendall Jenner look like they're being planted in the tabloids, it just adds to this speculation that the "romance" is a sham.
There are constant rumors that Styles is really bisexual, and that he has had romances with BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw (who is 29) and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson (who is 22). All of them have publicly denied the rumors.
Styles has also been romantically linked to several women, including singer Taylor Swift, Kimberly Stewart (one of Rod Stewart's daughters), model Cara Delevingne, "The Xtra Factor" co-host Caroline Flack, radio DJ Lucy Horobin, model/actress Emily Atack, former "Made in Chelsea" star Caggie Dunlop, singer/actress Natalie Imbruglia, model Emma Ostilly, singer Lucy Halperin, and photographer Sarah-Louise Colivet.
Flack is the only one whom Styles has made publicly admitted he has dated. In January 2012, when he and Flack broke up (shortly before One Direction became a world-famous group), Styles went on Twitter to say that he and Flack had broken up by "a mutual decision." Styles and Flack dated for about four or five months and have reportedly remained on good terms with each other after they stopped dating.
