One Direction Drama! Harry Styles' Rumored Girlfriend Ditches Twitter After Fan Backlash

Harry Styles, Emma Ostilly Twitter

Harry Styles' rumored girlfriend is moving in one very clear direction: away from an angry Twitter mob!

The One Direction cutie was recently snapped canoodling with model Emma Ostilly in New Zealand. Sweet, right? Not if you're a Styles die-hard!

News of the 18-year-old pop star's romantic dalliance didn't sit too well with his ardent admirers, and apparently hell hath no fury like a boy-band fanatic scorned, as fans quickly gathered up their cyber pitchforks to chase after Ostilly…

They seem to have succeeded: Ostilly, 18, has deactivated her Twitter account following a barrage of threats and slicing snarks from disgruntled One Direction fans.

One user went so far as to create a Facebook page called "Anti-Emma Ostilly," which featured a photo the couple snapped of themselves—but with a large "Stop" sign plastered on Ostilly's pretty mug.

The two reportedly met on the set of the music-video shoot for One Direction's hit "Gotta Be You," but reconnected when the band traveled to New Zealand, where Ostilly supposedly lives.

A source, however, tells E! News that Styles and Ostilly are not dating, but are just friends.

Fans have been getting some serious whiplash trying to follow Styles' love life: He was previously linked to British TV personality Caroline Flack, who is 15 years his senior, and he recently asked 32-year-old Bachelorette star Jillian Harris out on a date. Cougarrific!

There were also rumors of a romance with 19-year-old singer Lily Halpern, which she's denied.

Somebody please hand us some Dramamine—we're getting dizzy trying to keep up!
