(Newser) – Those rumors of Taylor Swift cheating on Conor Kennedy with a member of UK boy band One Direction may not have been so far off base: Swift and One Direction member Harry Styles were spotted holding hands at a recent X Factor taping, the Huffington Post reports. Mario Lopez—an eyewitness—dished the news on his radio show, and E! and People both have sources corroborating.

Harry came with Taylor to the taping, says E!'s source, and the two "were joking and laughing. He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off." And People recalls that about a week before the taping, Harry's bandmate Niall Horan was asked if he might ever date Swift. Horan simply laughed, looked over at Styles, and said, "No." Radar notes that Swift and Styles briefly connected in April and are now giving it another try, but Harry is "a young, popular heartthrob who isn't quite ready to be tied down," a source says.
