Irish Model Denies Dating One Direction's Niall
Update! Zoe Whelan has taken to Twitter to slam the rumours...
It seems One Direction's Irish charmer Niall Horan is still on the market as model Zoe Whelan has denied dating the star.
A source revealed: "Niall has been secretly seeing Zoe for a couple of months after he met her backstage.
“She’s a Dubliner but is based in London to work on her modelling career. Zoe’s travelled all over the UK to meet up with Niall on the band’s tour.
“But the biggest sign he’s really serious about her is that he introduced her to his whole family at his brother’s wedding.”
They added: “Zoe’s the first girlfriend Niall has brought back to his hometown of Mullingar since making it big, so it was a big deal and the talk of his family at the wedding.
"Niall’s protective of her as she’s shy, but his family all really took a shine to Zoe.”
However, Whelan has since rubbished the rumours, tweeting: "No, me and Niall are not dating."
She is then thought to have deleted her Twitter account after recieving abuse from jealous Directioners, writing: "Now I've settled the rumours you can all go back to your own lives. Please stop tweeting me rude things."
