Niall Horan, Ellie Goulding May Be In L.A. As Dougie Poynter Breakup Rumors Emerge

Less than a week ago, Niall Horan fans were speculating about whether he and Selena Gomez would start a romantic relationship. However, now there are hints that Niall Horan could be romancing his old flame, Ellie Goulding.

In fact, the rumors about Niall Horan and Ellie Goulding have spread so fast, it can be hard to believe that Harper’s Bazaar was speculating about him and Selena Gomez just a few days before on November 30. Regardless, by then it was confirmed by insiders that Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were just friends — and allegedly nothing more.

Ellie Goulding, Dougie Poynter break up just as she sees her ex Niall Horan.

This may also mean that Niall Horan is no longer potentially in the dog house with his friend Justin Bieber. Although Selena Gomez and Justin are supposedly just friends, true fans are aware that they may be on a roller coaster — romantically speaking.

Alternatively, Niall Horan is accustomed to being in trouble with other celebrities for dating their recent exes — especially when it comes to Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding’s past “love triangle” rumors that included Niall.

A couple of days later after things with Selena Gomez were over (before they started), Niall Horan played a show with Ellie Goulding at the Jingle Ball in Dallas, Texas, according to Pop Sugar.

Ellie Goulding and Niall Horan took a photo together where they are both beaming with joy — and it did not take reporters long to remember that the two had been on a few dates together in 2013.

At the time of the Jingle Ball, rumors were emerging that Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter were on the verge of breaking up — if they had not already. About Ellie and Dougie’s relationship status, the Mirror reports on December 3 that insiders told them the following.

“They are taking a break. Their work commitments have meant they have been spending more and more time away from each other and it has made it difficult to maintain their relationship. They’ve decided to have a temporary break to see if they can work things out.”

If insiders are to be believed, Niall Horan could have a chance to reignite an old flame — if Ellie is game.

Since her breakup from Dougie Poynter (after dating for two years), Ellie Goulding has not had time to pursue things with Niall Horan. Instead, Ellie has been at Art Basel Miami promoting her MAC Cosmetics line, according to a Daily Mail report from December 3.

Niall Horan places special focus on his last One Direction shows.

To battle through a cold (or perhaps annoyances from her alleged ex, Dougie Poynter), Ellie Goulding was reported as drinking tequila at the Miami Beach Edition hotel.

Hours later, the Mirror reports that Ellie Goulding was already in a Los Angeles airport following her brief Miami visit. Will she hang out with Niall Horan in Los Angeles?

After all, Niall Horan tweeted late on December 3 that he was going to appear on the Late Late Show with James Corden — and it is filmed at CBS’s Studio 56 in Los Angeles.

Obviously, unlike Ellie Goulding’s opposite-ends-of-the-globe relationship with Dougie Poynter, Niall Horan and Ellie may find their schedules are compatible — especially since Niall is going on break from One Direction in a few months.

While there have been no official confirmations that Niall Horan and Ellie Goulding are dating, Niall has still been having fun.

For example, Just Jared points out Niall Horan recently listed all of his favorite karaoke songs, and includes The Eagles, Chris Brown, and Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way.”

For fans that want to see Niall Horan naked more often, the good news is that he is currently topless in a new Honda Civic advertisement. According to Sugarscape, around December 1, a clip of a commercial was released that shows Niall Horan from the waist up — completely nude.

Of course, fans may remember that it was around Christmas Eve in 2014 when Niall Horan did a run-around in his undies while cameras were rolling. The incident took place during NBC’s airing of One Direction: The TV Special, according to People.
