While Styles has denied rumors about his alleged bisexuality, he has adopted a gender-fluid image since departing from his former group One Direction, something that has since been tagged by fans as an attempt at queerbaiting. Now, Harry is finally breaking his silence.

Speaking with Rolling Stone for its September issue, Harry, who stars in the upcoming thriller film Don't Worry Darling opposite fellow MCU star Florence Pugh has addressed accusations that he's been faking a queer persona to lure his LGBTQ+ fanbase. Some fans have pointed out the fact that he's only been seen publicly with women and his gender fluidity is questionable.

Harry responds: "Sometimes people say, ‘You’ve only publicly been with women,’ and I don’t think I’ve publicly been with anyone. If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re choosing to have a public relationship or something."
