Niall girls, we have some great news! Our fav little Irish cutie is single once again — according to a new report, the 1D singer and his girl Melissa Whitelaw have split!
Distance makes the heart grow fonder, but it looks like that’s not the case for Niall Horan, 21, and Australian beauty Melissa Whitelaw, 21! The whole “long-distance” thing just wasn’t working out for Niall, a new report claims — find out exactly what went down between the two love birds!
“Niall and Melissa did well to keep their romance low-profile during their time together. They were really close and had fun whenever they went out together,” a source told The Sun. “But realistically they always knew it was going to be tough, keeping a relationship going with such distance between them.”
Niall and the Sydney student were first linked back in February when a fan snapped a few sneaky pics of them kissing in a bar over the Valentine’s Day weekend. “I saw it and it was more than one time. They’re kissing in the photos, there’s a girls head in the way,” the fan said about the pics she took on Twitter.
In April, it was reported that Niall brought Melissa to the UK to meet all of his friends. “Melissa met the rest of [One Direction] on tour, when she first grew close to Niall, but after flying over to spend time with him [recently], they now see her as his girlfriend. She attended the Great Gatsby-themed charity ball – arranged by Liam’s girlfriend Sophia [Smith] – with Niall, as his plus-one…,” a source told Mirror.
As much as they liked each other, it sounds like Niall’s busy lifestyle and the distance was just too much of a burden for the couple…womp womp! HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Niall is single again? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
