Harry Styles is said to be concerned Taylor Swift will continue to make reference to their short relationship in public.
The One Direction star has been publicly gracious about his split from the 23-year-old pop singer.
However, in private the 19-year-old has allegedly told friends he regrets becoming involved with Taylor as she continues to mock him in her music.
“Harry might have taken Taylor’s swipes with an air of grace, but he now wishes he never ever dated her,” a source told RadarOnline.
“I mean, the fact she’s aiming a jab at him in the 22 video has got Harry wondering what’s coming next! He just doesn’t know what to expect."
In the promo for her new track Taylor seemingly pokes fun at boy bands. There are also coded T-shirt slogans and paper hearts which are torn in half, which Harry reportedly finds a low blow.
“It wasn’t the most amicable of splits, but Harry said all along that he wanted to take things slow and easy with Taylor," the source continued.
“There was certainly no commitment made, despite Taylor’s protestations and the fact that they were so busy with their careers and lived in different countries meant that it could never have really got that serious."
Taylor's new track comes off the back of her catchy hit I Knew You Were Trouble. Over the weekend the blonde singer admitted the track’s lyrics are about Harry, apparently leading the teenage heartthrob to fear she'll continue to reference their relationship.
“What for Harry was ‘a bit of fun’ at the time has slowly turned into a personal nightmare," the source claimed. "But he won't stoop to Taylor’s level, he’s just going to continue to be the more grown-up person and get on with his life. Perhaps something Taylor should consider too.”
