Reports of a possible romance between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have been picking up pace since the One Directioner was spotted hanging out with the star backstage at the X Factor USA last week.
But it appears that not everyone is happy with romance blossoming between the two popstars following the claims that the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' has been receiving death threats on Twitter.
According to The Sun, one so called fan of a group called Directioners posted: "I’ll murder Taylor Swift. She will not date my Harry."
Another added: "If u dating my harry, I kill u.”
Appearing to take no notice of the horrible messages, Taylor took to Twitter yesterday to tell her fans of her American Music Awards plans.
She wrote: "Walked into my AMA dressing room and there was this little bowl of candy in there. Literally shrieked with excitement. Need to tone it down.
"Getting ready for the AMAs! Maybe if you feel like it, you'll watch?"
Following the reports that the pair were spotted with each other backstage, X Factor USA presenter, Mario Lopez appeared to confirm the couple's relationship telling 104.3 MY FM:
"Taylor Swift was the special guest performer and here's a little inside scoop for you. During rehearsals Harry from One Direction came over and slapped me on the back, and said, "Hey Mario how ya doing?" And I said "What are you doing here?" and he sort of pointed towards Taylor."
"Later I saw them walking off hand in hand. So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction- you heard it here first. They're officially hanging out, I can say that much."
