Never, ever getting back together… or are they? Taylor Swift and Harry Styles may have called it quits last year, but sources tell Us Weekly exclusively that the two stars are now friendly again. 

"They have become pals," an insider tells Us of Swift, 24, and Styles, 20. The country-turned-pop crooner and the One Direction heartthrob started dating in October 2012 before splitting in January 2013.

"They had a fight," a source told Us at the time, adding that Styles "said something he shouldn't have" and the breakup "is definitely going to be for good." Things got rocky between the two at the end of 2012, as Swift skipped out early on a vacation with Styles. 

While she may not have found her forever in the British pop star, Swift did get some album inspiration. She referenced their relationship in multiple songs on her hit pop album 1989, including her collaboration with Jack Antonoff "Out of the Woods," and the thinly veiled "Style." 

The boy bander took no issue with his inclusion on the record, saying earlier this month in a Google Hangout, "We write from personal experience. I think everyone does. So it would be hypocritical of us to be like, 'Oh, you can't write about us.'"

Not only was Styles not offended by the songs, but he reconnected with Swift as well, sources tell Us. 

"Taylor has been bragging to her trainer and celeb friends that she and Harry are talking again," a second insider dished, adding that Swift, whose pre-Styles guys include Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, and Conor Kennedy, hasn't been dating anyone else since. 

"My expectations have changed when it comes to love," Swift told Us Weekly exclusively this month. "Now when I meet someone and there's chemistry, my first thoughts are 'When this ends, I hope you'll remember me well.'"
