Harry Styles neglecting One Direction band mates

HARRY Styles has reportedly become a "virtual stranger" to his One Direction bandmates after spending the majority of his time in the United States rather than spending time with them.

The 20-year-old heartthrob has reportedly been spending a lot of time in the United States with 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kendall Jenner and in turn has been neglecting his fellow 'Story of My Life' singers - who he will soon reunite with for rehearsals for their upcoming tour.

An insider claimed Harry had become a "virtual stranger" to the rest of the group, saying: "It's as if Harry isn't part of the group.

"It's going to come to a head now because for the first time in months they are going to be spending every day together as they rehearse for this summer's tour."

Harry's bandmates - Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - are said to be worried that he isn't taking One Direction seriously and is instead more interested in pursuing his own career.

The insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "The boys want reassurances from Harry that he's in the group for the long haul. They won't let him just use them for his own career ambitions. They want to know what's really going on.

"It's like he has two separate lives now. One in America and his work with the band. Now he's going to come back in and act like they are all best mates again? It's unlikely!"
