It seems Niall Horan’s crushes are hot property in One Direction, and the other guys have no qualms about going after them. What’s worse, they seem to succeed more often than not. Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and ex-bandmate Zayn Malik have all dated one of Niall’s crushes at some point, according to Celebs Now.
All that remains now is for Louis Tomlinson to hook up with talk show queen Lorraine Kelly, with whom Niall admitted to being “obsessed,” according to Daily Mail, and we can call it an across-the-board Niall Horan betrayal-fest!
It all started when Zayn Malik got engaged to fellow X Factor alumna Perrie Edwards.
Niall had previously admitted to having a crush on “the blonde one,” ie. the blonde member of Little Mix, in an interview. Next thing we knew, Perrie and Zayn were the biggest, loviest couple in the world of pop, and Niall was finding solace in bedside golf and peri-peri salted Nando’s chips.
Aw, Niall! At least the crush didn’t seem to be that serious, what with Niall not even knowing Perrie’s name and all.
Niall can take additional solace in the fact that he later pinched Justin Bieber’s girl, Selena Gomez, according to Hollywood Life. That feat even got Niall some kudos and a big high-five from Justin-disliking bandmate Louis Tomlinson, who found the whole thing “hysterical.”
Louis is also the only One Direction member who has not bedded one of Niall’s crushes, so they are obviously the most perfect and brotherly team in the band. Nouis rise!
I legit feel bad for @NiallOfficial— Amina El Said (@Mina56652) February 29, 2016
He had a crush on Kendall Jenner&Perrie Edwards
Harry&Kendall reportedly dated
Zayn&Perrie were engaged
Next, Niall admitted to having a crush on Kendall Jenner, saying he is a sucker for “nice eyes.”
Harry Styles was right on the case, being spotted with Kendall not just once, but twice. First they were photographed on some dates in 2013. The fling fizzled quickly, only to revive on New Year’s 2015/2016, when the pair were spotted on that yacht sailing around the Caribbean.

You think stealing someone’s crush twice is bad? Liam Payne has outdone even that.
When Liam hooked up with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini he snared a woman lusted over by both Niall and Louis Tomlinson.
As soon as the “Cheriam” relationship news was revealed by the Sun fans recalled the time Louis wore a t-shirt that said “Cheryl, call me.”
People dug up a couple of the pictures and they are currently in high circulation on Twitter.

Niall liked Perrie, she & Zayn got engaged. Niall had a crush on Kendall, then Hendall happened. Niall liked Cheryl, now Liam's dating her.— Pia Isabella ⚡️ (@_piabernardo) March 1, 2016
To be fair, the pretty brunette is probably desired by about half the planet. Who would have thought gentlemanly Liam would be the one to sock it to all of those three billion individuals with one smooth move?!
Speculation about the extent of Niall’s crush on Cheryl is now covering Twitter, with some even suggesting that Niall chose his @NiallOfficial name to copy the X Factor judge, he was just that smitten!
