Harry and Caroline are 'off' right now but may reunite
The group’s about to go on a US tour, supporting Nickelodeon’s clean-cut boy band Big Time Rush.
‘Harry’s relationship wouldn’t have gone down at all well in the States,’ says Now’s source.
‘There was a fear that it could damage their reputation before they’d even got started.’
Twitter fans had already been joking that their affair would have actually been illegal in many US states, where the age of consent is 18.
A friend of Caroline’s told Now: ‘Harry’s family was fine with them, but he was starting to get jip professionally.
‘It’s sad, but Caroline knew it wouldn’t last forever.
‘They’ll still be friends and haven’t ruled out getting back together – she keeps saying he’d be the perfect man in 10 years’ time.’
