Harry Styles Avoided This Year’s Met Gala Like The ‘Bubonic Plague’ With the MET Gala being the biggest event in the fashion world, you would think Harry Styles would’ve been on the red carpet.

According to an informant who claims to be a friend of his, the reason Mr. Styles couldn’t attend was because of his exes, Olivia Wilde and Emily Ratajkowski. “Harry was invited to the Met Gala, but knowing that both of them were definitely going, he avoided it like it was the bubonic plague,” the insider told the Daily Mail. Even after Harry’s team ensured no awkward run-ins, he declined and said seeing Wilde would be “too intense.” Do you avoid going places because of an ex? Share your story.
