Niall Horan really needed a bathroom, but there wasn’t one to be seen anywhere. Niall looked in one direction and then another, but had no luck finding a men’s room. But “when you gotta go, you gotta go,” and according to TMZ, Niall definitely had to go. On March 4, Horan was out with a “bevy” of beauties in West Hollywood when nature called loud and clear. The One Direction star didn’t want to leave his friends to go find a proper bathroom, so he decided to work with what was available.
Fortunately, there was a nearby “empty parking lot” just waiting for Horan, and the moment he spotted it, Niall headed for relief.
The Daily Mail reports that Niall is “enjoying an extended hiatus” from his usual gig as singer with boy band One Direction. The band are taking a break so that all the members can “press pause” on the kind of crazy schedule they’ve had to stick to since their fame and popularity took off. Louis Tomlinson is using the break from One Direction to figure out how to be a dad, and Harry Styles spent some quality time making out with Kendall Jenner. Niall is partying and enjoying every minute of it. Sugarscape reports that Horan is “looking hotter than ever” as he makes the rounds in L.A.

Horan may be looking hot, but using the parking lot as his toilet wasn’t even a little bit sexy. Niall leaned up against a lamp post to keep his balance while he did the deed. Once he was unzipped and relieving the pressure, he glanced over his shoulder in the direction of his friends to see if they were watching. Niall may have been worried about being caught on camera too!
One Twitter user pointed out that for most people, seeing a man pee in a corner would totally be in the “ew that’s gross” catagory, but because it was Niall Horan, everyone acts like it’s no big deal.
if you saw another man pee in a corner you'd be like EW THAT'S GROSS but ofc you'd act like it's not a big deal because it's niall horan lol

Another fan thought it was worth mentioning that he once used the men’s room only to find Niall Horan and Roger Gracie on either side. So at least we know that Niall does use an actual washroom sometimes when he’s out. Maybe the parking lot pee incident was the one time Horan had problems that couldn’t wait.
Fun fact: at the last UFC in London, I went for a pee only to notice Niall Horan and Roger Gracie were standing either side of me.

Some fans were wondering if Suede Brooks was in the group of Horan’s friends, since Suede and Niall have been closely linked lately.
Fans were upset when Niall and Suede were spotted together, since Suede is much younger than 22-year-old Niall. Suede, age 15, was around, but didn’t leave with Niall.
The girls Niall was papped with are Suede Brooks (15) & Charlotte D'Alessio (17). He didn't end up leaving with them, no need to freak out.

Niall may have enough to keep him busy for awhile, since Horan and One Direction bandmate Liam Payne are said to be staging a “mini” One Direction reunion Saturday night in L.A. Unreality TV reports that the two friends are heading out to a UFC fight, the same event as the one where a fan found himself next to Niall in the urinal line-up.

That glimpse of Liam and Niall together won’t be enough for One Direction fans who want to see the whole band back together, and the sooner the better.
Are Harry and Niall not coming?? I was really hoping for a One Direction reunion
