Taylor Swift and Harry Styles

TAYLOR SWIFT is about to have her heart broken!

The country cutie, who’s already dated and broken up with a horde of hunks, is being played by the handlers of her latest lover, One Direction singer HARRY STYLES, say sources.

Taylor, 23, and Harry, 18, have known each other for nearly a year but only started dating recently, after Swift broke off her romance with CONOR KENNEDY. But sources say her match with Harry was orchestrated by his publicists to cast even more light on the handsome teen pop idol.

“Little does Taylor know that Harry’s handlers went to great lengths to put the two together because she’s such a huge star,” said an insider. “Anytime Taylor starts dating a new guy she gets a flurry of media attention, and her breakups receive even more.”

Taylor’s long list of lovers includes pop star JOE JONAS, “Twilight” heartthrob TAYLOR LAUTNER, rocker JOHN MAYER and screen hunk JAKE GYLLENHAAL, all of whom she’s reportedly written songs about.

“After one of Taylor’s relationships sours, it’s almost a sure bet she’ll write a song about it and there will be even more waves of publicity,” noted the insider.

“That’s why her romance with Harry was arranged by his handlers.”

Taylor first became friends with Harry last March when they met backstage at the Nickelodeon awards in Los Angeles – and that apparently set his publicity machine in motion.

“When his advisers saw the potential for a blossoming relationship, they began doing everything they could to push the two closer together,” said the insider. “It took some time because Taylor began to date Conor Kennedy, but they didn’t give up and saw to it that Harry was waiting for her with open arms when she broke up with him. Now they’re just waiting for the relationship to take its course and reap the publicity benefits of a breakup.

“The problem is, Taylor has really fallen hard for Harry, so her heartbreak is going to be a real doozy.”
