And when neither party denied the rumours of their courtship, we pretty much assumed it was the real deal.

However, all is not what it seems.

According to HollywoodLife.com a source close to Taylor has revealed that the singer is simply going along with the rumours in order to make her ex Conor Kennedy jealous.

Surely this isn't the case?

The source said: "She isn't denying in any way the reports of the people talking about her having a relationship with Harry because she wants to make Conor jealous and the way she thinks she is making him jealous is to show him that she has options.

"But in reality, she actually wants Conor and is just doing this to 'Wear the pants in the situation!' She has no interest in making the Harry thing work."
