Boyband singer Harry Styles has sent the rumour mill into overdrive as he was spotted on a date with a new woman.

One Direction member Harry was photographed with Erin Foster earlier this month as they visited a pumpkin patch in Los Angeles.

According to Grazia, Erin is a close friend of Kimberly Stewart, whom Harry briefly dated last year.

Erin (32) is a television actress and comedy writer who has starred in The O.C (as bad girl Heather), House, Gilmore Girls and Judging Amy.


Erin’s dad is David Foster, a heavy hitter in the music industry, hence her connections with the likes of Kimberly and her best friend Nicole Richie.

The statuesque blonde was previously linked to Ryan Gosling and Samantha Ronson (Lindsay Lohan’s ex.)

Grazia magazine reports that, “Erin and Harry met through Kimberly Stewart at Penny Lancaster’s birthday over a year ago and stayed in touch. Erin's dad David is a top music producer and a good friend of Kimberly's dad Rod.

“They've been hanging out in LA, after visiting the pumpkin patch, they went for dinner. It's nothing serious, but they're both having fun,” the source added.

Harry obviously has a penchant for more mature women; when he was 17-years-old he hooked up with presenter Caroline Flack who was then 31.
