Selena Gomez Responds to Niall Horan Dating Rumors, Says She Loves Him

Are they or aren’t they?

Selena Gomez finally cleared the air about the nature of her relationship with One Direction’s Niall Horan after the two were seen kissing at a Los Angeles nightclub. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the “Hands to Myself” singer insisted she’s just good friends with the boy bander.

“Oh my god! No! I love him, I always have,” she said when asked if she was dating Horan. “He’s amazing.”

Gomez, 23, and Horan 22, first sparked romance rumors when they were seen “making out” at Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s 35th birthday party at Bootsy Bellows earlier this month. The rumors were then fueled when the two were seen riding a rollercoaster together at Santa Monica Pier before Gomez told a fan on Instagram that she prefers One Direction’s Made in the A.M. album over ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s Purpose.

The two also recently appeared in Raquelle Stevens’ Instagram photo, where Horan is seen with his hand on Gomez’s shoulder.
