Harry Styles’ ex Caroline Flack ‘sent Twitter knife threat’ by One Direction fan
11:50 20 July 2012
A fan of boyband One Direction has allegedly sent a knife threat to Caroline Flack, who previously dated band member Harry Styles.
The presenter of TV show Xtra Factor has complained to the police after allegedly being sent a menacing picture of a teenage girl holding a six-inch knife.
The message was apparently sent via the twitter username @harmonynostrils69 - which has since been deleted.
A friend told The Sun newspaper: “Caroline was shocked” while police have said “we’re investigating”.
This is a new blow for Caroline after a man accused of stalking her for three months was recently arrested.
The 39-year-old man - who has not been named – was questioned after he reportedly kept turning up at the Xtra Factor presenter’s workplace to give her gifts.
Following his arrest he has been bailed until August by police.
