A representative for Harry Styles has dismissed claims the One Direction star sent a friend's mother "disgusting" text messages in an attempt to seduce her.

British Tv presenter Yvette Fielding alleges Styles, a pal of her son Will, fired off a number of rude messages to her as they dined as part of a group together.

Fielding, who claims the singer was just 16 when the incident took place, tells U.K. publication Woman, "Harry was sending me disgusting texts from across the table. I can't even repeat the words, they were so rude!"

However, the pop superstar's spokesperson has moved swiftly to shoot down the allegations, stating, "Harry has never sent any rude or inappropriate text messages to Yvette Fielding."
