Barbara Palvin has finally spoken out about reports that she has been dating Niall Horan.
The model was first linked to the One Direction star last summer, when they were spotted on a covert cinema date and later entering the band’s This Is Us premiere after party in London.
It was reported that they were getting serious over Christmas, with the Little Things singer even planning on bringing her home to meet his parents and the duo were spotted looking rather cosy in each other’s company at Gary Barlow’s New Year’s Eve gig in London.
However last week it was reported that the so called couple had split and that Barbara Palvin had a new man on her arm these days.
Finally, the brunette beauty has spoken out herself about the rumours and while she didn’t definitively deny dating Niall, she does seem to suggest that they were only ever friends.
In a red carpet interview with OK! at the Elle Style Awards 2014, Palvin said:
“Niall is a nice guy, we just hang out…..We’re mates.”
The pair apparently bonded over their love of football, with Babs admitting that she’s a bit of a ‘tomboy’ and always loved hanging out with guys.
The model returned to England from Paris, where she’s been working for since January, for London fashion week and during the chat she refused to choose the ‘hottest member of One Direction’ claiming that all the boys are handsome (don’t we know it!).
Babs was not quizzed on Niall’s supposed new romance with Selena Gomez however, after the pair were spotted out in London together this week.
Gomez was in the English capital for a few days and caught up with the 1D hunk, however if they hoped to avoid detection, they clearly underestimated the legions of UK Directioners, as one eagle eyed fan noticed the stars on Sunday and asked them to pose for a picture.
The photo caused quite a storm when it appeared on Twitter this week.
The US singer has only recently emerged from a rehab facility, which she entered voluntarily, as she reportedly struggled to deal with mental and physical exhaustion caused by her heavy work schedule.
