One of the most awkward situations one can get is to unexpectedly see their ex with some company, thus forcing you to mingle. But Taylor Swift and her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles had other ideas during their unexpected encounter. And it got caught on video too. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
On Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015, Kings of Leon lead singer Caleb Followill celebrated his birthday in the Sunset Marquis in Los Angeles with a star-studded group. But it seems two of the guests didn’t expect to run in to each other that night and ended up getting their encounter on video.
As seen in the video caught by TMZ, Swift was seen hanging out in the hotel’s lobby with some friends when another group of people approached them. And one of them was Styles, Swift’s ex-boyfriend, whom she broke up with in 2013.
The video also showed how Swift avoided eye-to-eye contact with Styles as he greeted the rest of the group. Though there was a point that their eyes might have met for a teeny second, Swift broke it off and kept looking at her cell phone or at other people. And it seemed Styles didn’t even try to make any sort of move to acknowledge her. Wow, talk about an awkward situation!
Though they’ve broken up almost a year ago, it seems that both Swift and Styles still cannot make a clean transition from ex to friend, not that that’s an easy thing to do in the first place. Nevertheless, this cold shoulder move seemed strange, because they both have had previous encounters, and they politely acknowledged each other. Or maybe they were just caught by surprise on this one?
Swift and Styles first came out as a couple in late 2012 then broke up months later. It was even rumored that two of Swift’s songs, “Out of the Woods” and “Style” from her ‘1989’ album were inspired by her break-up with him.
