The verdict is in on Harry Styles — by way of his dad.
As Jewcy pointed out, Des Styles, “Gemma & Harry Styles’ dad. Sales and Marketing Director for Quickdox. Man Utd fan,” as described in his Twitter bio, has confirmed that his son — and One Direction heartthrob — is not Jewish. “Not at all.”
Still lots of queries asking if H is some % Jewish? No idea where any rumours came from in but, categorically, he is 0% Jewish. Not at all.X ampmdash; Des Styles (@desstyles) August 11, 2013
