Harry Styles' ladies man image is something most girls love about the cheeky chappy, but the 19 year-old's father has reportedly warned him he needs to clean up his “bad boy,” image to avoid getting stuck with the reputation of a “love cheat”.
The curly haired cutie has been linked to everyone from Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack, supermodel Cara Delevingne and Made In Chelsea's Caggie Dunlop. But it seems his last romance, the incredibly high profile two month relationship with Taylor Swift has caused concern for Styles' dad.
“Des is worried that Harry is emerging as a lad who treats girls badly, dumps them and moves on without much remorse,” a source told the Daily Star.
“He told Harry he’s part of a clean-cut teenage band and although girls love them, he needs to treat them right.
“He doesn’t want his son to develop haters, with girls likening him to love cheat Ashley Cole."
With Harry heading out on an eight month tour with One Direction, it's likely there will be no end of opportunities to hook up with fans, with girls throwing themselves at the boys. But father Des, has reportedly warned him off any groupies and told him to concentrate on the music.
“He told Harry to ride the wave and live the dream, but he’s concerned his son is getting a bad reputation, which is unjustified as he’s a kind-hearted soul,” the 1D insider went on.
It seems Swift though, is the really worry for Des. The star recently slammed Styles in an interview. A friend, who spoke to Vanity Fair on behalf of the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer claimed the romance broke down over Taylor's “trust issues”.
Fearing Harry's charm may soon run out, the insider claimed his father warned him off anymore famous hook-up.
They said: “He’s also advised Harry not to get involved with anyone again the way he did with Taylor Swift, saying he should focus solely on the tour. Harry listens to his dad. He looks up to him and they’re very close.”
Speaking to the Daily Star recently Des admitted he'd been advising his son on dating in the spotlight.
“I told him, just because you’re a good-looking boy and the girls like you, don’t use them,” he told the paper.
“But teenage lads take stuff on board and throw out what they don’t want to listen to.”
It doesn't exactly seem like Harry's taken his father's words to heart though as he reportedly got close to a fan in Belfast last week after picking her out of the 1D crowd during a gig. According to The Sun Shaniece Nesbitt was invited back to the lads' hotel where they partied until 5am.
