Though it’s been a relatively low-key romance – when compared to the love affairs of Harry Styles anyway – One Direction’s Niall Horan has apparently called time on his relationship with student Amy Green, having told her that he’s “too busy” to find time for her.
And according to friends of Amy’s, she’s “devastated” over the end of the romance, especially as she ended a four year relationship to date Niall.
A source close to the couple said, “Sadly, it is over between Niall and Amy.
“He finished it because he didn’t have enough time with everything he has to do.”
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, the insider continued, “Understandably she was disappointed because she had been in a relationship before she started seeing Niall and chose him over her boyfriend.
“But there are no real hard feelings and they’re still close.”
20 year old Amy, who’s studying drama at the University of Birmingham, first began dating Niall last October after they met at a London nightclub, but it seems that she’s always had concerns about Niall’s immaturity.
A friend of Amy’s said, “She found Niall a bit too immature for her tastes.
“It was like Niall’s first relationship, whereas Amy had been in a relationship before…
“Niall used all the tools he could to woo her and he treated her really well. She enjoyed it while it lasted and hopes they’ll stay friends.”
However, sadly, Amy has – as all girlfriends of the 1D lads do it would seem – had to endure a lot of abuse on Twitter from Directioners, so perhaps now her romance with Niall is over, that will end.
Late last year, one 1D fan wrote, “@Amy-Green92 You are dating Niall and now you think that you are famous?
“Attention seeker! Go away! Drama queen!
“@AmyGreen92 I hope that Niall doesn’t see you without make-up because he will die!”
When asked about the split, Amy told the paper, “I don’t know what I should or shouldn’t say. Sorry.
“Niall said he’d ‘never felt happier’.”
Aww. Are you sad or glad that Niall’s single again?
