After countless rumors, hints and denials, it looks like the relationship between One Direction's Niall Horan and aspiring model Zoe Whelan is no more. Between an incredibly busy tour schedule and a controversial night with "Made In Chelsea" star Louise Thompson, fans can rest easy knowing that the Irish heartthrob is indeed single and it looks like he ended things in a pretty uncouth way, too.
Less than a month ago, the young model hinted that her relationship with Horan was "secret," but it looks like she probably just didn't know what was going on because the busy One Direction singer has reportedly ignored her during his "Take Me Home " tour. This news comes soon after the rumors of his apparent one-night-fling with reality star Louise Thompson, which also reportedly threw a wrench into his relationship with Whelan.
"She told him she wasn't happy about the Louise headlines and they had to hammer things out between them," a source told The Sun back in June. "She is a young girl who likes Niall a lot but told him she won't be taken for a mug either. They both agreed that things are so busy with One Direction that they will just stay in contact and see what happens. Niall knows Zoe has been thrown into his world and wanted to chat to her about the stories in the papers. He knows she has been getting hassle online too and wants to look out for her."
Though it looked like they might have worked through this rough patch, reports are now claiming that they have simply called off the romance.
"Over the past few weeks her modeling career has become huge, but Niall hasn't been in contact to say well done. She hasn't even had a text from him, let alone a call, for nearly two weeks," a source recently revealed to The Sunday Mirror. "It is all over for Niall and Zoe - and it is completely because of his side of things."
Do you think that Zoe and Niall are really over or is this just another rumor about the young couple?
