Niall Horan has been rumored to be dating plenty of different women since One Direction became an instant hit. Most of the rumors have never amounted to anything, but his latest romance is quickly picking up steam.
The 19-year-old has recently been linked to Irish model Zoe Whelan and she hinted towards a relationship with the One Direction star in a recent interview.
The 18-year-old Whelan was asked about her reported romance by the Irish Herald and she gave quite the interesting answer.
“It’s a secret really,” she answered.
The response is somewhat confusing, but there is truly only two explanations behind the answer. She’s either dating the One Direction singer or she’s simply prolonging the rumor for everyone to discuss.
In this case, it seems that she’s more than likely dating the star as he brought her as his guest of honor to his big brother’s wedding earlier this year. Nevertheless, rumors are still rumors until they are officially confirmed, which gives fans another reason to go crazy over Niall Horan.
Each member of the pop group has there own following, but the resident blonde has a mysterious background through rumors ever since the group took off. This one might actually turn out to be the truth and all signs are pointing in that direction as of now.
Horan has yet to comment on the situation, but Whelan isn’t shying away from it one bit and she even went on to say that she’s received backlash from obsessive One Direction fans.
“A lot of girls have said nice things. But you get nasty and mean comments. I’ve had a few death threats which is really scary,” she added. “I just ignore them; I try not to pay them any attention.”
With the buzz behind the rumored relationship in full swing, it’s only a matter of time before the truth is revealed. As of now, Zoe Whelan has made it pretty clear that something is going on with Niall Horan, which could get under the skin of plenty of fans.
