In what seems like a bid to become even more popular among Jewish tweens of the female persuasion, Harry Styles of the band One Direction paid a visit to Manhattan kosher restaurant Le Marais on Aug. 22, The Algemeiner reports.
The British heartthrob was even wearing a kipah. The blue-knitted number, embroidered with his name, was, according to Twitter, a birthday gift from director friend Ben Winston.
While Styles, who sports a Hebrew tattoo and occasionally tweets in Yiddish, is obviously quite philo-Semitic, he is not in fact Jewish. Don’t believe us? Ask his dad, who recently issued this statement to curious fans.
Still lots of queries asking if H is some % Jewish? No idea where any rumors came from in but, categorically, he is 0% Jewish. Not at all.X
