According to Grazia, all the hubbub started earlier this week after celebrity gossip Instagram account @deuxmoi posted an anonymous DM from someone who claimed they had spotted the two in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon area about six to eight months ago. The source then went on to say that it was "definitely a date," before alleging that they overhead Styles and Ross talking about the craziest places they'd hooked up together.
That said, the claim hasn't been independently verified. However, the gossip still sent internet sleuths into overdrive and Twitter is now overrun with supposed evidence of the potential romance, including photos of the two hanging out backstage at Styles's concert last year, as well as a clip from The Late Late Show with James Corden, in which Ross joked about Styles liking her Instagram photos.

Harry Styles fans v Tracee Ellis Ross fans having a mutual cease fire to not drag one another, b/c their relationship seems so awfully pleasant. Maybe they are fucking, maybe they HAVE fucked, you know Tracee laughed the entire time and Harry spoke in low sweet tones.— Aware Black Woman ✊🏿🍎 (@1AwareBlkWmn) September 28, 2020
And while it's worth repeating that neither Styles nor Ross have commented on the rumors, that definitely hasn't stopped the internet from continuing to speculate on their possible romance —
