ONE Direction star Harry Styles has finally been forgiven by Taylor Swift — eight months after their bitter break-up.
Their mutual friend, folk singer Ed Sheeran, helped heal the rift.
Ed, 22 — best mate of Harry, 19 — is on tour with US country star Taylor.
A pal said: “Harry was ready to move on months ago and try to remain friends, but Taylor hadn’t let go of what happened.
“Ed didn’t mention Harry for a while, but over the past few weeks Taylor started bringing him up.
“She made it clear that she didn’t want frostiness between her and Harry any more. She feels she has moved on to a better place — and Harry should know that.
“The tension has thawed. Ed and Harry had a full catch-up at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
“The next step will be Harry and Taylor meeting at an awards ceremony.”
Taylor, 23, made a string of digs at Harry after he ended their 66-day romance.
She is not mentioned in 1D’s new documentary movie This Is Us, due out at the end of the month.
A source said: “Taylor would have hated having the scandal on the big screen. But Harry never had any intention of doing that.
“Taylor can see that now and it has helped them make up.” (x)
