It turns out professional rumor starter Mario Lopez wasn’t lying when he let it fly that Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Harry Styles got awfully close on The X Factor set last week.

Apparently Mario wasn’t the only one to catch Taylor and Harry in the middle of their gigantic November 15 flirt-fest.

“They lit up when they saw each other,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Taylor “was a puppy dog” in Harry’s presence.

For Taylor’s part, the feeling seems to have been mutual. Observers reveal that Harry sat in on Taylor’s rehearsal, singing along and making small talk with the country star’s mom.

After walking around holding hands, “Harry picked her up and carried her to the trailer!” the insider added. 

Diving headfirst into a relationship with an 18-year-old pop star may not be the wisest romantic decision Taylor’s ever made, but either way, we’ll be eagerly awaiting the bitter breakup songs!
