So just who is Harry Style's ex-girlfriend and what is important to know about her? Here are facts, rumors, and details that you need to know about Camille Rowe.

1. Who is Camille Rowe? She's a French-American citizen.

Her father, a Frenchman, met her mother, an American, who was a model and dancer at Le Lido Club in France. Camille was born in Paris and spent her childhood between France and the States. She moved to America when she was 21 and now lives in Los Angeles, California.

2. She has been a model for nearly 10 years.

Camille Rowe was discovered in her hometown of Paris when she was only 18 years old. She was spotted by a modeling agent in a café in Le Marais in Paris while she was studying for university, and since then has made quite the name for herself.

She has been in numerous campaigns during her modeling career, including Dior Homme — where she starred alongside Robert Pattinson, no less — Vogue Paris, H&M, Louis Vuitton, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Tommy Hilfiger. And that’s just to name a few.

She has also been a Victoria’s Secret angel since her debut on the walkway in 2016, and was absolutely delighted to get her chance to strut her stuff for the first time at their fashion show.

“At this point, I’m just excited to get on the runway,” she said. “There’s about two million cameras, so at the end of the day you can do what you want and you’ll still look good.”

3. Camille Rowe dated other famous people.

Before her short-lived romance with Harry Styles, Camille was dating Cam Avery, an Australian musician with the bands Pond and Tame Impala, and the lead singer of his own band, The Growl. Before that, she also dated Andrew VanWyngarden, the lead singer and guitar player for the popular band MGMT.

There were rumors that she and Robert Pattinson had gotten involved during their 2013 Dior Homme shoot, but these seemed to not amount to much, since it seems that Robert was involved with several models during that shoot.

A couple of years back, she was dating fellow model and American skateboarder Dylan Rieder, who sadly passed away in October of 2016 after a years-long battle with leukemia due to immune weakness from cancer treatments. Camille’s Instagram is still filled with pictures of them together, and many of Harry’s fans had expressed dismay at her devotion to her lost love when they were together, but really, it's very sweet how much she loved him. It shows just how devotional she can be to her loves, which is a beautiful thing!

4. In 2016, she was featured in Playboy.

She appeared on the cover of their April 2016 spread as their Playmate of the Month, looking gorgeous as all.

5. Rowe is also an aspiring actress.  

Though some people question her involvement with MGMT’s lead singer, it does lend some credence to the idea that they were together, since she starred in the music video for the band’s song, "Alien Days."

She has also appeared in a music video for The Strokes’ "Call Me Back," as well as in several French films. There is Our Day Will Come, where she acts alongside Vincent Cassel — one of the stars of Black Swan — and a comedy called Rock ‘n Roll, starring the model as herself. She has also been in a film called The Ideal, and a short film called Ascension.

6. When they were dating, Harry Styles' fans voiced their "displeasure" over the relationship.

On Camille’s Instagram where she goes by the name of "FingerMonkey," there was a staggering amount of hate once news broke that Harry was dating the model, who is four years older than him. Some of it was absolutely just insane, to be perfectly clear.

While some reacted negatively, others still were trying to be respectful and remind people that Harry Styles is about spreading love and peace — not attacking and bullying people online.

Styles former relationship with Camille Rowe caused quite the controversy among his most die-hard fans, and a few of them even went so far as to try and rein in some rather "exuberant" fans and let them know that who Harry Styles dates is entirely up to him — not them.

Even more interestingly, a surprising number of the people who had commented negatively on her page seemed to mostly be angry that she was upsetting their “Larry” ship that promotes rumors that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, who are well known as best friends, are secretly in a romantic relationship together.

Some of the commenters went so far as to accuse Camille of being a "beard" to cover up Harry's gay romantic inclinations.

Louis Tomlinson himself already came forward and announced that, not only were the rumors not true, but the crazy fan theories put a strain on his friendship with Harry Styles and were disrespectful to his girlfriend, Eleanor.

7. In 2018, Rowe and Styles broke up.

The couple ended their romance a year after they were first spotted together. Although the pair only dated for a year, it was actually Styles' longest relationship. 

8. Camille Rowe is referenced several times throughout Styles debut album, Fine Line.

Even though the musician and the model's romance ended well over a year ago, it seems that the breakup still isn't far from Styles' mind, judging by his new album. Rowe's presence is apparent throughout practically the entire album, entitled Fine Line.

The singer references the couple's split on three songs: "To Be So Lonely", "Falling", and "Cherry." However, the whole album has mentions here and there of Rowe.

In fact, Styles actually used Rowe's voice throughout the album! The singer clarified his choice to do this, saying, “I think it was because it got added in later on, and it felt so part of the song. It just felt like it needed it. We’re friends and stuff, so I asked her if it was okay. And she was okay with it. I think she liked it.”

Well, even though their relationship didn't work out, at least Styles and Rowe are still friends!
