It's been a rough week for lovestruck One Direction fans.
On Wednesday, the group's Zayn Malik confirmed his engagement to Little Mix performer Perrie Edwards, bringing many a hormonal delusion to a crashing end. The news came just after Liam Payne admitted to being in a relationship with an old pal from secondary school, Sophia Smith. Shortly thereafter, pictures of Harry Styles smooching a beautiful brunette at the after party for the London premiere of One Direction: This Is Us hit the Internet.
And now there are rumors that the group's youngest member, Niall Horan, has a little something going on with a very famous blonde: Ellie Goulding.
According to UK tabloid The Mirror,
Niall and Ellie were spotted sharing a kiss in the VIP section at the Virgin Media V Festival over the weekend. Niall, 19, is a good 7 years younger than Ellie, but that's never stopped him from flirting with her over Twitter.
Naturally, some fans are pretty worked up:
