The singer, 22, was spotted cozying up to One Direction's Harry Styles, 18, on the "The X Factor" set on Nov. 15 -- and none other than the FOX show's co-host Mario Lopez caught their backstage PDA.
On his 104.3 MY FM radio show on Nov. 16, Lopez revealed that he saw Swift and Styles holding hands after her performance of "State of Grace."
"Taylor Swift was the special guest performer, and [here's] a little inside scoop for you," Lopez told his listeners. "During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, 'Hey, Mario, how ya doing?' And I said, 'What are you doing here?' And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor."
The "Red" singer and the British boy-bander "walked off hand in hand," Lopez added, announcing, "So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction -- you heard it here first. [They're] officially hanging out, I can say that much."
E! News also revealed that the pair were on set together, giggling and joking around as Swift prepared for her on-air performance.
"Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon ... He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage," a witness told E!. "After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing," the source added. "He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off."
Sounds like Swift is writing a new "Love Story."
Although rumors were swirling that Efron and Swift were an item while they were working on "The Lorax,"<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/25/taylor-swifts-ex-boyfriends-ellen-video_n_2015960.html?utm_hp_ref=celebrity"> the singer revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on Oct. 24 that she "never dated" the actor</a>. Well, now's your chance, Swifty!
<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/24/james-franco-dating-rumors-ashley-benson_n_2008619.html">He's not dating Ashley Benson or Kristen Stewart</a>, so that means he's a free man.
What better way to heal from a cheating scandal than go out for some coffee with Taylor Swift? Come on RPatz, just picture it.
"The Hunger Games" star hasn't had a serious relationship since his breakup with Vanessa Hudgens. Swift's type precisely.
Ashley Greene dated Swift's ex Joe Jonas, so why shouldn't<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/25/ashley-greene-reeve-carney-split-twilight-spider-man_n_2016022.html"> the singer date hers</a>?
This two would make sweet, sweet music together. End of story.
<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/24/eva-longoria-mark-sanchez-breakup-desperate-housewives_n_2011494.html">Eva Longoria just broke his heart</a> and his buddy Tim Tebow is <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/02/tim-tebow-taylor-swift-date_n_1314936.html">reportedly pals with the country cutie</a>. This might be a match made in heaven. Plus, maybe Swift should try her luck with athletes...
Speaking of athletes, A-Rod is known to get bored in relationships. Maybe these two serial daters would work perfectly together.
The "Friday Night Lights" hunk would bring some edginess to Swift's sweet and sugary life. Plus, they share a name, which we know she likes. Ehem, Taylor Lautner.
One of our Facebook followers suggested "Bachelorette" star Emily Maynard's former fiance be Swift's next beau. "Jef Holm!" she wrote, adding, "or someone not famous."
"She needs to get back together with Taylor Lautner," one of our Facebook friends wrote. And we couldn't agree more! (Come on, she did say she wanted to go Back to December...)
Strangely enough, some of you wanted T-Swift to betray <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/26/selena-gomez-taylor-swift-bake-cupcakes_n_1455431.html">her BFF Selena Gomez </a>and snatch up Bieber. That's just wrong!
Most of you had the same thought though -- Taylor Swift should stay single for a while. But guys, you're forgetting ... what will she write about if she has no ex-boyfriend to inspire her lyrics!?
