Harry Styles set for split with Cowell to ‘move as far away from 1D as possible’
A new major US solo deal could be on the cards

HE’S chopped off his famous locks and now HARRY STYLES is considering cutting his last remaining ties with ONE DIRECTION.

I’ve learned the pop heart-throb is at the centre of a bidding war between record giants Universal and Sony, as mentor SIMON COWELL braces himself to lose the star from his label, Syco.

Harry’s potential deal with Universal will be managed out of the US and is likely to see him sign with Capitol Records, home to KATY PERRY, EAGLES, BECK and even THE BEACH BOYS.

The label, based at the iconic Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood, is run by Brit hot- shot music exec Steve Barnett, who got to know Harry while launching 1D spin-off band 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER.

But Universal Music Group chairman Lucian Grainge — who once tried to poach 1D from Sony — is also believed to be instrumental in luring Harry away from the record company.

Sony is doing everything in its power to keep him, sparking a huge bidding war.

A Sony source said: “Harry is being offered so many incentives to stay. They’re breaking the bank for him.”

Dunkirk actor Harry Styles shows off his new 1940s-style military cut as he joins the Hollywood scale operation on WWII drama
Dunkirk is one of the mostly hotly anticipated films in years thanks to an all-star cast consisting of Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh and One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles, who was spotted on set today in uniform sporting a bloodied bandage.

He was joined by an army of extras and a fleet of WWII battle ships which descended on Dunkirk beach this afternoon as Hollywood invaded Normandy for another day of action-packed filming.

In full Allied regalia dozens of extras were seen marching up the beach – flanked by cardboard cut-outs to bolster their numbers – almost 76 years to the day since 338,000 British, French and Belgian troops were evacuated from the beaches during World War II.

The film is based on the real life evacuation from Dunkirk, which was one of the biggest operations of the Second World War and was one of the major factors in enabling the Allies to continue fighting.

It was the largest military evacuation in history, taking place between May 27 and June 4, 1940. The evacuation, nicknamed Operation Dynamo, saw an estimated 338,000 Allied troops rescued from northern France.
