With the relationship ended in the meantime, Wilde and Styles are enjoying a bit of respite from being tabloid fodder after facing many controversies throughout their relationship.

Despite dating for nearly two years, intimate details about Wilde and Styles rarely made it into the media as the pair kept that part of their life away from the spotlight.

Speaking with Rolling Stone in August, Styles shared insight into why he kept his relationship private.

"I've never talked about my life away from work publicly and found that it's benefited me positively," he told the publication. "There's always going to be a version of a narrative, and I think I just decided I wasn't going to spend the time trying to correct it or redirect it in some way."

Wilde echoed the same idea during an interview with Vanity Fair. She said, "I think once you crack open the window, you can't then be mad when mosquitos come in," The "Booksmart" director said at the time.
