The husband of radio DJ Lucy Horobin has reportedly said that he was left "devastated" after it was revealed she had a fling with One Direction's Harry Styles
According to The Sun
, 31-year-old Oliver Pope told a friend that he couldn't believe his wife had cheated on him and that the revelations caused him "unimaginable pain".
"I was outraged," Pope is quoted as saying. "Not only was my wife telling me she had slept with somebody else, she was telling me it was him, Harry Styles.
"I was devastated. I felt every emotion - hatred, sadness, disappointment."
Pope is said to have branded Styles a "predator" and referred to him as "the little scumbag [who slept] with Caroline Flack" after 31-year-old Horobin confessed that she and the then 17-year-old popstar had had a fling
Horobin and Styles met when One Direction visited Manchester radio station Key 103 last August. During an interview with the group, the pair flirted with each other, and studio webcam footage apparently shows Styles mouthing "I love you" at the presenter.

Pope and Horobin had been married for a year when the three-month fling began. The relationship is said to have ended when Styles began to show interest in Xtra Factor
Pope and Horobin currently live together in Hampshire and are understood to be fighting to save their marriage.
The DJ, who now presents a show on Heart's South Coast FM, recently quit Twitter
after One Direction fans subjected her to a torrent of abuse.
