Radio DJ Lucy Horobin has abandoned her Twitter account weeks after it was claimed she had a hot romance with Harry Styles. The 32-year-old had received a string of abuse from One Direction fans on the social networking site, with some calling her a 'b*tch' and even a 'dirty paedophile' - despite Harry being over the legal age of consent.
Harry Styles' rumoured ex-lover quits Twitter after abuse
Lucy Tweeted shortly before quitting the site: ''To clarify, I haven't said ANYTHING to any press, nor do I wish to. Thank you to those of you who have said kind words today. Xx.''
It's reported that Harry and Lucy got close for 3 months last year when she was temporarily estranged from her husband and shortly before his relationship
with Caroline Flack, also 32.
Lucy has also taken time off work since the news broke. And her Heart South Coast FM co-host Jason King took the opportunity to make a joke of Lucy's absence amid all the drama.
He told listeners: ''Over the weekend you may have picked something up in the newsagents and read something which may have shocked you.
''I'd like to confirm the rumours are true and she has taken time off - to read Fifty Shades Of Grey and tell us all about it tomorrow.''
