Harry Styles has reportedly "stayed away from women" since he and Taylor Swift broke up in December.
The couple dated for several months before splitting over the holidays, apparently after they got into a huge argument while vacationing in British Virgin Islands.
Although Taylor arrived in London earlier this week with speculation rife that she went to win back Harry, this tactic didn't work.
Harry may be romantically traumatised at the moment and is said to be embracing bachelorhood.
"Since he split with Taylor a few weeks ago, Harry has stayed away from women," a source told British newspaper The Mirror.
"Who knows what's going on but there is no chance he and Taylor will get back together now.
"People keep on saying that when they meet up in Cannes they are bound to reignite their relationship, but that is hardly going to happen."
On Thursday a pretty blonde woman was seen leaving Harry's multimillion-pound mansion in the upmarket Primrose Hill area of the city.
The young lady has been identified as a good friend of Harry's sister Gemma and the siblings' mother Anne Cox.
Harry often consults the family friend, who is a fellow automobile enthusiast.
"Harry invited her around and said that they were talking about cars, the girl is a family friend and when Harry buys cars he tends to do it through her," the insider said.
Although the details of Harry and Taylor's holiday blowout aren't known, it has been widely reported that Harry grew bored of Taylor's interest in antiques.
