Niall Horan’s first solo single, “This Town,” was not written about Selena Gomez, despite a purely speculative and inaccurate webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

Horan’s new track is a breakup song that details his heartbreak over a past relationship gone wrong. Without a single source to back up its claim, HollywoodLife guesses Gomez is the subject of the One Direction singer’s single. In reference to some of the song’s lyrics, the site asks, “Could it be that Niall is having regrets about not trying harder to make things work with [Gomez] after their brief rumored romance?!”

The repeatedly refuted outlet adds, “We’re definitely not ruling out the possibility that ‘This Town’ is about Selena!” Gossip Cop, however, can 100 percent rule out the theory that Horan’s song is about the pop star. We checked in with a reliable source close to the One Direction singer, who exclusively assures “This Town” simply isn’t about Gomez.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Horan and Gomez never dated, despite HollywoodLies having repeatedly tried to romantically link the two friends. In fact, we previously wrote a piece detailing all the stories HollywoodLife got wrong about Gomez and Horan dating. The two singers have never been a couple, and therefore his new breakup song isn’t about her.
