Has Harry Styles bagged himself another cougar?

Everyone knows by now that Harry Styles has a bit of a thing for older women, so we’re not one bit surprised to hear who his rumoured new flame is.

The One Direction star has set tongues wagging after taking a trip to the pumpkin patches in Los Angeles with Nicole Richie's bestie, 32-year-old comedy performer Erin Foster.

Naturally, social media has been set ablaze with the rumour that Harry has bagged himself another cougar, but we doubt anyone will be surprised by their 12-year age gap. After all, not only was the singer once dating presenter Caroline Flack, 34, but he also had an alleged fling with married radio DJ Lucy Horobin.

While the photos of Harry and Erin’s “date” don’t reveal any particularly romantic gestures, we don’t imagine that it will take long for the singer’s devoted fans to go into total meltdown.

As we all know, Caroline Flack didn't have the easiest time of it when her romance with Harry was revealed, so we hope they don't go too crazy after getting word of their date – especially when it could be totally innocent.

Good luck with that, Erin!
