A Very Well-Known Singer Has Admitted To Having A Fling With One Direction Star

It was a rumour that circulated for months, and now singer Ellie Goulding has confirmed that she did in fact date Niall Horan.

The Anything Could Happen singer was speaking in an interview with Elle this month and admitted that though she dated Niall briefly, she did not have a relationship with Ed Sheeran.

Ellie and Niall went on a 'few dates'.

The rumours began after Ed reportedly penned his chart-topper Don’t about an ex being with his friend – rumoured to have been Niall and Ellie.

“I did go on a few dates with Niall, but I was never in a relationship with Ed [Sheeran],” she stated to Elle.

“I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.”

She also spoke about her relationship with boyfriend Dougie Poynter.

“He is definitely the one forever. He’s been through a lot, and he has a quiet depth that I love.

“And you know what, when I was a teenager, I fancied him but I thought he was so out of my league. Way too good-looking for me."
