It’s no secret that Harry Styles loves a cougar. Forget dating people his own age, he’d much rather date someone who is roughly 14 years older than him *ahem Flackers*, but no older than his 43 year old mum Anne.

And it would seem that Harry’s new best mates Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have cottoned on to this, and realised that they are going to have to protect two very important ladies from Harry’s cougarish ways.

Harry Styles likes a cougar

Selena was quoted by The Mirror as saying:

‘Justin has become really good buddies with the guys, and we know some beautiful young women in the industry who have major crushes on Harry.

‘He could probably pretty much take his pick from the hottest young girls in Hollywood. But from what Justin has been telling me, it’s not the young girls he’s looking at!

‘I guess you just can’t blame him when you see how hot women such as Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara look.

‘Both me and Justin still have really hot mums and Justin was like, ‘Harry might have become one of my best buddies, but with his record we need to keep him away from our mums’.’

They’re ready Harry, so don’t even try it.

We reckon Harry will be saddened by the news that there are now two less MILFs he can try his luck with, but if he keeps up with these little escapades, then that sex ban that was slapped on One Direction may have to be stepped up a notch.

We’re talking a lock and key style situation for the young lothario.

We're sure Selena and Bieber would approve.
