Teenage girls all over the world are freaking out.
One Direction’s Harry Styles (19) and rocker Rod Stewart’s daughter Kimberly Stewart (33) are believed to be an item. The rumored love-birds were seen going out for dinner together with the rest of the Stewart family in Los Angeles. After the teen heartthrob reportedly spent the night at Rod’s house, the rumor mill went into full-spin.
A source has told E! News that “They were introduced by a mutual friend who set them up…Kim is very strong willed, she goes for what she wants and Harry appreciates that. It is a very new thing and we’ll see where it goes.” Although some reports are confirming the romance, others are stating this is just a publicity stunt.
Regardless of the veracity, this potential relationship is for many reasons…well, unusual. Here are the facts you need to know:
The age difference between Styles (19) and Stewart (33) is hard to ignore. But dating older woman is not a new trend for Harry. The pop star has been involved with 23-year-old Taylor Swift, 32-year-old Lucy Horobin and 33-year-old Caroline Flack.
Harry may be young but he is quite a heart-breaker. In fact, country star Swift is said to have written her single “All Too Well” about the One Directioner. Click on the link above to listen.
2. Kimberly Has a Kid with Benicio Del Toro
The actress/model has a 1-year-old daughter called Delilah del Toro. The father of the toddler is Oscar-winning actor Benicio Del Toro, best known for his performances in Traffic, 21 Grams and Che. Although del Toro and Stewart were “not a couple” they were still “looking forward to the arrival of the baby,” reports People.
Is teenage Harry ready to be a step-dad?
3. Some Say It’s a Publicity Stunt
“Kimberly and Harry are just friends,” an insider told FOX411. “Rod (Stewart) really likes Harry, so it’s good PR for him.” People Magazine has also reported that Harry was seen “flirting” with another girl recently. But according to celebrity gossip-king Perez Hilton, “sources have come forward to CONFIRM that the 10-year-old One Direction heartthrob is, in fact, in a relationship with the 33-year-old socialite.”
4. Kimberly’s Brother is Dating an Older Woman
I guess age really doesn’t matter for the Stewart family.
Brother Sean Stewart (33), known for his stint on the show Celebrity Rehab, is dating 51-year-old Adrienne Maloof. The mother of three was a cast member of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
5. Kimberly Has Dated Many Other Stars
Harry Styles isn’t the first A-lister Stewart has dated. Not only did she have a child with Benicio del Toro, but she is also said to have been involved with celebrities such as Rhys Ifans, Jude Law, Tommy Lee, Caleb Followill, Scott Caan and Jack Osbourne.
