After they were spotted sharing a sweet reunion at the recent American Music Awards, could exes Niall Horan and Selena Gomez be rekindling their romance? That’s what Ryan Seacrest wanted to know when he chatted with the One Direction singer on his radio show this morning.
“People speculated you might rekindle with, Selena…but you have a girlfriend, right?” asked Seacrest, as reported by E! News.
“I don’t have a girlfriend,” Horan replied, to which Seacrest quipped: “You should rekindle with Selena. I like her.”
Horan’s reply: “Sort it out!”
In fact, Horan admits that he’s been single for some time now, insisting it’s been “about a year” since his last serious girlfriend, and that he “prefers” to be sans-girlfriend at the moment.
With questions about his love life out of the way, Horan addressed the other elephant in the room: when/if will One Direction be getting back together?
“It’s pretty much in the same position as it was when we told people we were taking the break,” Horan told Seacrest of 1D’s current status. “We’re just sort of chilling out… We took the break at a time when we thought it was right. We finished five years of solid touring for nine months of the year.”
Despite the hiatus, Horan revealed that he does try to stay in touch with his bandmates, although that’s easier said than done. “Everyone’s been great,” he explained. “We all email and stuff like that, and everyone keeps in touch… I see Louis [Tomlinson] quite a bit, we don’t live too far away from each other. I haven’t seen Harry [Styles] in a while, and I haven’t seen Liam [Payne] in a bit either.”
