Harry Styles' friend Will Sweeny: He says his relationship with Caroline Flack was just 'a physical thing'
The 18-year-old One Direction singer and Caroline, 32, had fun during their 3-month fling before splitting in January.
'I remember asking Harry about Caroline and he laughed,' says Will, 19.
'He said it was more of a physical relationship than anything else.
'All his mates think he's a bit of a legend though. It's classic Styles.'
Harry - who was the lead singer in Will's band White Eskimo before he auditioned for The X Factor in 2010 - has been linked to a number of women since his break-up with Caroline.
However, the 1D star's pal says Harry has now become keen on American girls.
'Harry just came out and said it one day. He thinks she's really nice.'
