Caroline Flack Receiving Death Threats Over 1D's Harry
One Direction fans aren't happy the TV star has been linked to Styles...
As we previously reported, the 17-year old star was seen having a 'cosy meal' with Flack at a posh London hotel, fuelling reports that Styles was romancing the TV presenter.
Caroline is now said to be 'distraught' after being subjected to vile abuse on the social-networking site from Harry's army of fans, with the 32-year old begging them to leave her alone.
Flack tweeted: "Hi One Direction fans! To clarify. I'm close friends with Harry... he's one of the nicest people I know. I don't deserve death threats."
Die-hard 1D fans - or Directioners as they are also known - have threatened Caroline with abuse, with one saying they wanted to "hunt her down and shoot her", while another raged: "I want to kill you Caroline Flack, Harry is mine B****."
Commenting on the threats, a source told the tabloid: "Twitter just went mad. People have been saying really horrible things. Caroline's really upset and shaken with how nasty some members of the public are being. It's pretty horrific receiving threats on your life."
Harry was said to be comforting Flack yesterday, with the insider continuing: "He was straight on the phone as soon as he heard Caroline had been getting death threats."
They added: "He felt awful that she had to bear the brunt after they were seen out together. He's trying to convince Caroline that this is just a storm in a teacup and the anger will blow over."
