They’re still very close friends,” said the source. Another source stated, “Right now they have different priorities that are keeping their apart. Styles will soon be on the road to complete a global leg on his Love on Tour world tour. He has already spent time in five North American cities.

Wilde and her children were spotted at Styles’ Nov. 15 concert in Los Angeles, and she was seen there dancing in the crowd as part of Styles’ Harryween Halloween night concert on Oct. 31. The two were spotted kissing in New York in September, despite rumors during the Venice Film Festival premiere of Don’t Worry Darling that they were on the rocks.

Styles and Wilde have been together for nearly two years. Though they never confirmed their relationship publicly, they were first seen holding hands in Jan. 2021 after attending a friend’s wedding together.

The couple met while Wilde was directing Styles in Don’t Worry Darling, a film that left a slew of publicity and wild rumors about their relationship in its wake — from supposition that lead actress Florence Pugh had a rift with Wilde, potentially over her behavior with Styles on set, to reports from Sudeikis and Wilde’s former nanny that Wilde’s interest in Styles (and decision to bring him homemade salad dressing) were the cause of enormous strife in the household, even leading Sudeikis to lay down in front of Wilde’s car to prevent her from leaving.

Sudeikis and Wilde issued a joint statement calling the nanny’s accusations “false and scurrilous” and part of an 18-month campaign against them. But Wilde also stirred the pot, sharing the recipe for the infamous salad dressing on her social media.

Sources acknowledged to PEOPLE the difficulty in dealing with the gossip and scrutiny surrounding their relationship. They said that the public pressure placed on them was difficult. They’ve experienced ups and downs throughout their relationship. ”

Despite numerous sightings together, the two never confirmed or addressed their relationship, besides reiterating their desire to keep their private life out of the public eye.

“I’ve never talked about my life away from work publicly and found that it’s benefited me positively,” Styles told Rolling Stone back in August.” There will always be a narrative. I decided that I was not going to spend my time trying to correct or redirect it. “

Wilde expressed similar sentiments in Dec. 2021 in an interview with Vogue, saying, “It’s obviously really tempting to correct a false narrative. It doesn’t matter what other people think about you being happy. It doesn’t matter what other people think about it. All that matters is what you are truly passionate about, what you love and who you love. “

Many of Styles’ songs on his 2022 release Harry’s House, including “Cinema” and “Late Night Talking” are believed to be about Wilde. Only time will tell if the situation can be reversed.
