Harry Styles denies he has a taste for older women
One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles has dismissed suggestion that he prefers older women.
The 19-year-old singer has engineered something of a Lothario style reputation since leaving the X Factor in 2010.
He dated Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack soon after the show's series ended but their 15 year age gap came under fire.
However, speaking to Australia's Sunrise, the British singer denied that he has a specific taste for more mature ladies.
He said: "It's not about how old someone is. I don't like older women, it's not like a weird thing. It just depends on who I get on with."
Styles was also confronted with a magazine article about his rumoured relationship with bandmate Louis Tomlinson, with the singer merely shaking his head and claiming that the images were doctored.
The band are currently down under on their Australia and New Zealand leg of their Take Me Home tour before jetting off soon for a batch of shows in Japan.
One Direction's busy schedule meanwhile looks set to keep its fast pace, with the group due to release their new album 'Midnight Memories' on November 25.
