X Factor UK alum and former One Direction singer Harry Styles was held up at knifepoint on Valentines Day, reports the Mirror:
The former One Direction singer, 26, was on a night out in Hampstead in London when he was confronted by a man who threatened him. The robber pulled out a knife and demanded cash. He acted quickly and handed over the cash, luckily leaving the musician unharmed. A source told us: “He actually played it pretty cool, quickly giving the assailant cash, keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with. “Understandably though it left him very shaken up afterwards.”
This, just a few days before the singer performed at the BRIT Awards held at the O2 in London. On Tuesday night (Feb 18). On the red carpet, reports Entertainment Tonight, Harry wore a black ribbon on his suit lapel in memory of his ex-girlfriend, Caroline Flack, whom he dated in 2011.
