One Direction's Niall Horan snubs Selena Gomez
Niall Horan turned down Selena Gomez after she got his number from Taylor Swift
Selena Gomez is thought to be back with her ex Justin Bieber
Niall Horan has recently been linked to Irish model Zoe Whelan
But Now can reveal she only did so after she tried to go on a date with his One Direction pal Niall Horan - and the Irish singer turned her down.
But Niall, 19, decided it'd be inappropriate to meet up with his mate's ex.
Our insider reveals: 'Not only are they friends, but Niall's keen to avoid any trouble with Justin.
'He knows dating Selena could've prompted a war with Justin.'
Selena now seems to have got the message that Niall isn't interested - especially as he's being linked to Irish model Zoe Whelan.
The 18-year-old, who shares a strong likeness to Selena, recently attended the wedding of Niall's older brother Greg.
Since then Selena's taken an interest in her ex again.
Coincidence or not?
