There might be a new romance blossoming in the entertainment world. In photos and a video obtained by the Daily Mail, Harry Styles and Emily Ratajkowski were spotted kissing on the streets of Tokyo. (Styles is currently performing in Japan as part of his Love on Tour concert series.) POPSUGAR reached out to reps for Styles and Ratajkowski for comment on the dating rumours but did not receive an immediate response.
In the video, the "As It Was" singer and Ratajkowski are standing next to a van as they exchange several kisses. Styles is also holding the model's hand as they embrace. They were both dressed casually, with Styles wearing a white shirt and black pants and Ratajkowski sporting a pink-and-black jacket.
One Direction fans especially got a kick out of Styles's latest romantic development because, in an old interview unearthed from when he was promoting the former group's fifth and final album "Made in the A.M." in 2015, they were asked about their celebrity crushes and Styles named Ratajkowski with little hesitation.
Ratajkowski recently spoke about how difficult it is to be in the dating world when you're also in the public eye on her podcast, "High Low With EmRata." She explained, "I've gone on dates where there's been no pictures, and I'm like, 'All good,' and then there's been times where literally the first time that I've met someone, we spent two hours together, and there's pictures on the internet."
This marks the first time Styles has been spotted with someone new since his split from Olivia Wilde in November 2022 after nearly two years of dating. At the time, a source told People that the couple had decided to "take a break." The source explained that Styles was focussed on his career, while Wilde "is focusing on her kids and her work in LA." They added, "It's a very amicable decision."
Meanwhile, Ratajkowski and film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard announced their divorce in September 2022 after four years of marriage. The couple share a 2-year-old son, Sylvester Apollo Bear. Since then, the "I Feel Pretty" actor has been linked to Pete Davidson and Eric André.
