A stolen cell phone or laptop can cause all sorts of hand-wringing for a celebrityÂ—and all their closest bold-named friends. But is One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles, the latest victim of a missing mobile?
Styles' cougar ex, Caroline Flack, has reportedly misplaced her Blackberry, and she's rumored to be quite nervous that certain phone numbers and photos may be blasted into cyberspace. ''It's a pain in the backside losing your phone at the best of times. Caroline's particularly panicked because she hasn't got any of the names in her phone under pseudonyms," said an insider. "She does have a password and has since been on to her network provider to triple-check she can have it all blocked."
It's not clear whether the digits of any of the other 1D boys, including Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan, are in Flack's phone directory. But apparently The X Factor's Simon Cowell's number is listed!
All hope is not lost, though. The source confirmed, ''The thing is, she's not sure it has been stolen. It could be lost under her bed in her flat, or down the side of the couch. But she hasn't seen the phone for a few days... The one she has lost is the one that she would rather didn't fall into the wrong hands.''
Unfortunately for Styles and Flack, this seems to be no prank like Justin Bieber recently pulled with his purportedly stolen laptop in an effort to promote his music video with Nicki Minaj, "Beauty and a Beat."
Hopefully for Harry Styles' former girlfriend, she'll find her phone. Caroline Flack has already had to deal with her fair share of controversy surrounding her fling with Styles, and she's probably in no mood to face any additional dramaÂ—if her Blackberry even contains any confidential info.
