Harry Styles' love life is almost as fascinating as his hair (almost)!

The One Direction heartthrob was recently grilled on his sexuality and number of sex partners in a widely circulated interview with British GQ, and now a former flame is making headlines dishing about their relationship.

British actress Emily Atack revealed all about their "brief but fun" fling to Reveal magazine. It is the first time either has spoken publicly about the relationship, first noted in May 2012.

"We were never boyfriend and girlfriend," Emily says. "I think that's the first time I've ever admitted to what it was, because I've always just shrugged it off before."

The 23-year-old goes on to say she was happy to clarify the rumors circulating since she dated Hazza, four years her junior. "We had a short-lived thing that was just a bit of fun," Atack admits. "Then we went off in our opposite directions." (Directions? We see what you did there.)

Pop stars have no secrets, apparently -- so it was no surprise that, once Harry and Emily began seeing each other, an inside source spilled details on the stars' future plans: "She's thinking about going to see Harry during the tour and they'll be speaking to each other all the time."

But that was not to be. Reports Emily now: "We haven't spoken in a while -- he's one of the most famous people in the world now."

Yes, he is. And there is no lack of people talking to the media about him, is there?
