One Direction’s Niall Horan said no when Taylor Swift tried to set him up with Selena Gomez because of Justin Bieber
Niall Horan is a good friend it would seem as it’s been reported that he turned down the chance to date Selena Gomez last year, out of respect for his pal Justin Bieber.
It’s been claimed that while Taylor Swift was dating Harry Styles, she tried to set his One Direction bandmate up with her BFF, however the ‘Little Things’ singer wanted nothing to do with the wacky plan.
Selena and Justin hit a rocky patch last November, after he was reportedly cheating on her with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin. They split just weeks later and Tay Tay apparently thought it would be a great idea for Gomez to work out her heartbreak by having a rebound romance with our favourite Irish boy.
However, she didn’t bank on Niall’s loyalty and after striking up a friendship with Bieber last summer, it seems he was keen to avoid upsetting his new friend.
“Not only are they friends, but Niall’s keen to avoid any trouble with Justin,” a source told Now magazine. “He knows dating Selena could’ve prompted a war with Justin.”
One other source told Perez Hilton, that Gomez was willing to go along with the plan, had Niall agreed. The insider said:
“She has seen what has happened with her friend Taylor and how dating Harry is getting her to get over her relationship with Conor Kennedy. Selena has said that she wants to start dating someone else to see if there is something better out there. I wouldn’t be surprised if Selena had a double date with Taylor and any of the single One Direction kids if she doesn’t get back with Justin. But he cries over the phone and she takes him back again.”
We’re kind of glad that this romance didn’t happen, as we love the thought of a Horan / Bieber bromance and this would have put an end to all that, there’s no doubt about it.
