Harry Styles' dad reportedly has some solid romantic advice for him: start treating girls right.Does this mean Harry is to blame for the Taylor Swift breakup?
Hazza's dad wants the One Direction singer to shed the "bad boy" image so that he's not seen as a "love cheat," a source tells the Daily Star.
The source notes, "Des is worried that Harry is emerging as a lad who treats girls badly, dumps them and moves on without much remorse. He told Harry he's part of a clean-cut teenage band and although girls love them, he needs to treat them right."
The source adds, "He doesn't want his son to develop haters, with girls likening him to love cheat Ashley Cole."
It seems daddy is just looking out for Harry's reputation, with the insider saying, "He told Harry to ride the wave and live the dream, but he's concerned his son is getting a bad reputation, which is unjustified as he's a kind-hearted soul."
Dad's other advice? Keep focused on the tour: "He's also advised Harry not to get involved with anyone again the way he did with Taylor Swift, saying he should focus solely on the tour. Harry listens to his dad. He looks up to him and they're very close," the source notes.
Daddy Des explained to the Daily Star, "I told him, just because you're a good-looking boy and the girls like you, don't use them. But teenage lads take stuff on board and throw out what they don't want to listen to."
Listen to your dad, Harry!
