They only dated for several months in 2012, but Taylor Swift is opening old wounds with her ex Harry Styles.

The Bad Blood singer (25) enjoyed a high profile romance with the One Directioner (21) three years ago and penned many famous songs after their split. But Taylor has once again spoken about the former relationship, saying she felt anxious the entire time.

"And so, you know, I think a lot of relationships can be very solid and that's kind of what you hope for, for it to be solid and healthy but that's not always what you get.

"And it doesn't mean that it's not special and extraordinary just to have a relationship that's fragile and somehow meaningful in that fragility."

Swift is said to have split with boyfriend of eight months, superstar DJ Calvin Harris.
