Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have reportedly rekindled their friendship.

The One Direction star and the 24-year-old singer - who briefly dated in 2012 - were spotted drinking cocktails at the after party for the Victoria's Secret fashion show in west London on Tuesday night (02.12.14).

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper's 3am column: ''All eyes were on Harry and Taylor when they turned up. People were desperate to see how they reacted to one another.

''It's really awkward, because they have so many friends who get on with both of them ... But they were actually fine. It seemed like they'd buried the hatchet. The drinks were flowing until 3am, when they snuck out of a rear exit five minutes apart to avoid being pictured together.''

Taylor - who performed her track 'Style' at the event - attended the after party with Ellie Goulding, before heading to the London Edition hotel with model pals, Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge.

In the meantime, the 'Night Changes' hitmaker met up with Ed Sheeran - who also performed at the fashion show - and Alexander DeLeon, frontman of The Cab, whose girlfriend is model Angel Josephine Skriver.

Meanwhile, a source recently revealed that Taylor would be ''heartbroken'' if the 20-year-old singer just wanted to be friends.

They previously explained: ''If Harry is just trying to be friends and he has no plan to actually date her again, this is going to be hard for her.

''She's going to get her heart broken all over again. She's just so sensitive and she does still like him a lot.''
