One Direction's Harry Styles: Emma Ostilly is just a friend - I prefer not to talk about it
The One Direction heartthrob, who's been in New Zealand with his band, spent last Thursday evening with Emma in Auckland and the pair were snapped kissing each other goodnight.
'She's just a friend,' says Harry, 18. 'She's working over here...I prefer not to talk about it.'
Emma was also spotted at 1D's hotel in the city on Friday, sparking rumours she'd replaced ex Caroline Flack, 32, in Harry's affections.
Internet trolls were soon reacting to news of Harry's apparent new girl, setting up hate groups and sending nasty messages, forcing Emma, 18, to quit Twitter.
'Emma Ostilly deleted her twitter.... HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA WHY AM I LAUGHING SO HARD,' Tweeted one troll.
