Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have been bonding as friends since Zayn Malik quit One Direction and left Louis lonely. Nevertheless, is Niall Horan about to mess it all up by possibly dissing the Louis-adoring Simon Cowell?
Niall Horan broke his foot, but the injury has not stopped him from partying for almost a week solid in London. The Daily Mail shows on September 20 that Niall Horan has been wearing a cast on his foot that allows him to walk around as if the cast is a normal boot.
To help him with his partying, Louis Tomlinson was at Niall Horan’s side after the Apple Music Festival on September 22, according to Cambio. Of course, this is not the first time that Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan have been seen outside of One Direction events having fun.
Naturally, after such a long and hot summer tour in America, One Direction may be feeling that they need to do more partying than usual since they were away from their home country for so long.
Alternatively, there may be more going on here than first expected between Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and their need to party. Although some may beg to differ, it seems to be apparent that after Zayn Malik left the band that there was a band mate friendship hole in Louis Tomlinson’s life that Niall Horan soon filled.
Some of their social events over the past few months have included the Glastonbury Festival, Wimbledon, and quite a bit of partying in clubs around the world, according to the Daily Mail.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, it is not entirely out of the ordinary for either of them to enjoy going to sporting events of any kind, but it is clear that Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan have bonded over the past six months in a way that they do not seem to be doing with either Harry Styles or Liam Payne.
Regardless of the bond between Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, Niall has to be careful if he is going to take on Louis as a full-time friend.
In particular, Louis Tomlinson is a darling of X Factor judge Simon Cowell in a way that the other members of One Direction appear not to be. For instance, Simon Cowell asked Louis Tomlinson to be a judge on the X Factor, according to SugarScape. Other One Direction members, like Niall Horan, have not been approached by Cowell for X Factor judge positions.
There seems to be something special between Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson. Niall Horan would do well to be supportive of that relationship.
However, it appears that may be easier said than done. Niall Horan said something about Simon Cowell that was quoted by Yahoo Celebrity UK on September 25 that could be construed as derogatory. They state the following about the alleged Niall Horan jab at Simon Cowell during the song “Infinity” at one of their recent London 1D concerts.
“When [Niall Horan] got to the lyric ‘When everybody wants you,’ he decided to add his own words, not-so-subtly saying: ‘Not anymore Simon.'”
Yahoo Celebrity UK goes on to point out that Simon Cowell was likely in the audience at the show and Niall Horan was probably making a joke.
However, if Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson do not work out, there is a chance that he will be chummy with another celeb. For example, Niall Horan spent time during the summer hanging out in America with Justin Bieber, according to the Ireland Independent.
Naturally, all fans of Niall Horan are always interested in who he will be dating next. Unlike other members of One Direction, Niall Horan is often single. Nevertheless, there appears to be some sparks flying if you can believe the rumors.
For example, one major benefit of Niall Horan partying in London is that he was seen with Natalia Jorquera Mahiki. This intelligent video journalist may not be part of his normal crew, and there is some speculation by UnReality TV that they may be more than friends.
