Harry Styles received quite the present for his 19th birthday: a lap dance from a stripper!
The One Directioner – who just two months ago was holding hands and playing with babies along with then-girlfriend Taylor Swift – celebrated his big day on Friday by having a rip-roaring night out with friends, including bandmate Niall Horan, at a London nightclub.
At one point during the evening, Styles – who was wearing a shirt covered in hearts – was surprised by a stripper, a gift which came courtesy of his friend DJ Nick "Grimmy" Grimshaw. The pretty brunette was dressed as a cop and delivered an, um, arresting performance.
"It was great,” Styles told UK’s Sun after getting up close and personal with the exotic dancer. “I was in stitches... The funniest part was that when she finished she said, ‘I'm really sorry. I couldn't find my truncheon, so I had to bring my nunchucks.’ That was a bit weird.”
Styles added that it didn’t get too racy. “She stripped down to her underwear, but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar," Styles told the newspaper.
The British singer stayed at the club until 3 a.m. before bringing the party back to a friend’s house. "It was a long day," he told the Sun. "We had two nights on the trot, but you have to on your birthday, don't you?”
Styles was referring to his wild night out the evening before. As omg! previously reported, the 1D heartthrob and a group of friends hit the private Groucho Club on Thursday night. One of the people helping him celebrate was his ex-girlfriend Caroline Flack, sparking rumors that they could be rekindling their romance.
Styles’ party-packed, stripper-filled weekend is a far cry from how he spent his time when he was dating Swift. The couple, who split in January after getting into a fight while vacationing in the British Virgin Islands, memorably visited the Central Park Zoo and spent the whole time cooing over their friends’ baby. For Swift’s birthday in December, she visited Styles in northern England, where they shopped for toys at a World of Beatrix Potter store and fed pigeons.
