Singer Harry Styles was robbed at knifepoint while he was out around Valentine's Day — but while the incident reportedly shook the singer up, he was unharmed.

Styles, 26, was out in Hampstead when a knife-wielding man allegedly approached him and demanded money, British tabloid Mirror Online reports.

"He actually played it pretty cool, quickly giving the assailant cash, keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with,” an unnamed source told the outlet. "Understandably though it left him very shaken up afterwards.”

The Metropolitan Police in London did not immediately return Oxygen.com’s request for comment. While they wouldn’t confirm to E! News whether or not Styles was the victim of a crime, they did say they were  investigating a robbery at knifepoint in that area. 

"Officers were contacted on Saturday, 15 February regarding the incident which happened at 23.50 hrs on Friday, 14 February,” they stated. “It was reported that a man in his 20s was approached by another man and threatened him with a knife. The victim was not injured however, cash was taken from him."

No arrests have been made and there are no reported suspects.

It has been a rough weekend for Styles. Much more tragic and shocking than the robbery was the death of  British television and radio host Caroline Flack, 40. She was found dead on Saturday, reportedly from suicide, the BBC reports. Flack and Styles dated briefly in 2011. 

Styles wore made an appearance at the 2020 BRIT Awards on Tuesday and wore a black ribbon, which is believed to be a tribute to Flack, according to Page Six. Black ribbons are often worn to signify mourning.

Styles, who shot to fame as part of the boy band One Direction, embarked on a solo career in 2017.
