Selena Gomez was romantically linked to One Direction member Niall Horan after one tabloid claimed that they were more than friends.
Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were allegedly dating. OK! published a report claiming that the two were spotted together, and it quoted sources claimed that they were “more than friends.” Gossip Cop investigated the report, and here’s what it found out.
Selena Gomez dating Niall Horan rumors
Last year, OK! claimed that Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were dating. The Boyfriend singer was allegedly bringing food over to his home after they were seen out in a group together.
It also quoted an insider claiming that Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriend was “open to start putting herself out there again.” However, the 1D member may have “already snapped her up.”
Both Niall Horan and Selena Gomez addressed the dating rumors, and they denied it. Horan went on Sirius XM and set the record straight; according to him, the things between him and Gomez were strictly platonic.
“We’re friends. We have the same group of friends,” Horan said.
He added that they hang out all the time, and the photo that was ever taken got posted, and it didn’t mean anything romantic. He insisted that they were just friends.
In December 2019, Horan addressed the same concern again and denied the dating rumors by saying he was single.
“Do I have a girlfriend? I don’t,” Horan replied. “No, I’m very much single. Very much single.”
Gomez made the same response by literally laughing off at the matter. The two are actually not more than friends.
A year later, the report remains false. Gomez and Horan never dated. So, Gossip Cop busted the report.
Horan is currently linked to Amelia Woolley. Meanwhile, Gomez is still single, and she just launched a new makeup brand called Rare Beauty.

with all of our schedules and travel, we don’t get to see each other as often as maybe we would like, but every time we do get to sit down and share a meal together, it makes me emotional and so happy. and seeing my favorite people embrace my now husband makes me want to cry. they’re really all family. 🖤
Gomez spoke about quarantine and depression
Meanwhile, Selena Gomez admitted in a recent chat with Dr. Vivek Murthy that she “went into a bit of depression” during the lockdown. Gomez said she struggled being stuck at home because she is used to traveling a lot and connecting with people. Also, she finds joy in entertaining and making people happy, which she couldn’t do while at home.
Gomez assured her fans that she was already doing okay. She is now focusing her energy to her cosmetic brand. Also, she’s been able to go visit the studio and leave her house from time to time.
“So I would say right now, I’m fully coming out again and I just think I had to handle it the way I needed to handle it, and got through it with the right people and doing the right things and doing the right steps to not make me go crazy,” Gomez said.
