One Direction appeared on Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and it was magical. The boys surprised a young fan with a group hug and some great gifts, leading to one of the most intense emotional reactions we’ve ever seen on television.

Meanwhile, there were some rumors to clear up. Zayn Malik says he’s “feeling a lot better” after a stomach bug kept him from joining the rest of the band on the “Today Show” earlier this week. As Gossip Cop reported, Matt Lauer had wrongly suggested that “substance abuse” may have been behind Malik’s absence, leading to Malik to strike back at the speculation. The singer also revealed that he and fiancée Perrie Edwards have not set a wedding date.

Then there’s the matter of Harry Styles allegedly sending Taylor Swift 1,989 roses to celebrate the release of her 1989 album. Gossip Cop was the first the bust that silliness, and Styles himself set the record straight on “Ellen.” “I know about the rumor,” he told the host. “I don’t know anything about the roses. It might have been someone else.”

Gossip Cop will have more from One Direction’s appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” when it’s available. Check out the videos below, and tell us what you think!
