One Direction's Niall Horan may have a new lady in his life. According to "The Sun," the 19-year-old is dating an aspiring model named Zoe Whelan.
A source tells the paper that their romance started about two months ago after they met backstage at one of the group's shows. Since then, Zoe - who is Irish like Niall - has been traveling all over the U.K. to spend time with him as the boys continue their tour.
The 18-year-old model has already been facing some Twitter-hate from One Direction fans since the rumors of their relationship started. But neither have come out and denied it.
Over the weekend, Zoe actually responded to a number of nasty tweets from Directioners, even telling one of them that Niall "doesn't like girls who are rude and bash on others."
