Harry Styles has splashed out £20,000 on "love and sex" themed art.

The One Direction hunk - who is rumoured to be dating 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kendall Jenner - bought 20 prints by artist Hayden Kays, including one piece which is simply a white background bearing the text 'If I wasn't straight I'd definitely be gay'.

Another of the pieces - which cost £1,000 each - features crudely-drawn penises with one bearing the words 'My pen is huge' inside, while another text-only design reads 'I think about sex every sex words'.

A source told MailOnline website that the prints were "probably to decorate his new home".

Harry's discovery of the artist isn't new, as he first bought a Kays print almost two years ago.

The source said: "Back in 2012 he purchased another love-related piece after his split from Caroline Flack."

The 20-year-old singer has an impressive art collection in his London home, with his pieces including a skull, a model of Jesus wearing boxing gloves and a £5,000 sculpture of a hand gun inside a glass fire alarm case.

Ben Turnball, who created the gun piece, said last year: "I did a series of fire alarms with weapons in called 'Every Home Should Have One'.

"Harry had one with a gun inside. I wasn't actually at the art fair and I didn't do the deal, but I'm fairly sure that Harry would have got a little bit of a discount.

"I think he bought a couple of my collage works that are made out of original comics and show giant pictures of firemen, relating to the 9/11 memorial."
