‘It's obviously a difficult feeling’
Speaking to Rolling Stone UK, Harry Styes when asked about the “small, toxic corners of the internet” that might be treating the people closest to him poorly, said, “That obviously doesn't make me feel good.” The Grammy-winning singer then sheds light on the overwhelming attention he gets for dating Olivia. “It's obviously a difficult feeling to feel like being close to me means you're at the ransom of a corner of Twitter or something,” said Harry adding, “I just wanted to sing. I didn't want to get into it if I was going to hurt people like that."

The British crooner’s girlfriend Olivia Wilde too spoke about the toxicity. “What I don't understand about the cruelty you're referencing is that that kind of toxic negativity is the antithesis of Harry, and everything he puts out there," said the 38-year-old filmmaker. She added, “I don't personally believe the hateful energy defines his fan base at all. The majority of them are true champions of kindness."
Harry and Olivia first stepped out as a couple while attending a wedding together in January 2021. Harry Styles have earlier dated celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Georgia Fowler, and Emily Atack among a few others. Wilde, on other hand, was engaged to Jason Sudeikis in 2012. They share kids Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5. They announced the end of their seven-year relationship in November 2020.
