Selena Gomez and Niall Horan have not “split” nor have they “cooled” off their romance, because they never had one. A webloid with diminishing credibility claims their “fling” is “winding down,” but Gossip Cop can report the two singers were never in a relationship in the first place.

According to HollywoodLife, Horan and Gomez’s “spark has faded.” The webloid then quotes one of its ill-informed sources saying, “The reason why everything cooled was because Selena didn’t want to take anything further.” The same know-nothing adds, “[Horan] is not heartbroken, just disappointed.”

Interestingly, back in December when HollywoodLies published one false story after another about Gomez and Horan dating, we wrote, “Gossip Cop anxiously looks forward to seeing how the webloid tries to untangle itself now from its vast web of lies.”

As a reminder, those lies included the outlet gushing about how their “chemistry is explosive.” Among the many other fabricated tales by the webloid was how Gigi Hadid was “eager to set up a double date” with her boyfriend Zayn Malik and Gomez and Horan. There were additional made-up stories about how Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris “can’t wait to double date” with them as well, and Gomez supposedly telling Justin Bieber she wouldn’t have fallen for Horan, if only he had “committed” to her.

Every one of those stories was manufactured. And in each instance, Gossip Cop called out the webloid for creating fan fiction. That brings us to today, where HollywoodLies is finally trying to untangle itself from its web of lies.

It should be noted, Gomez herself even said she wasn’t dating Horan. But HollywoodLies doesn’t seem to concern itself with the truth or Gomez. In fact, in an interview in October, Gomez said, “HollywoodLife is the worst,” and prior to that, she told her followers on Instagram, “HollywoodLife is never true. Ever.”

Still, after months and months of the webloid getting caught making up stories about the two young stars, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Gomez, and we were once again assured they were “never” a couple, and that the site’s tall tales were “not true” from the start. We also reached out to the HollywoodLife writer who wrote the latest absurd story about Horan and Gomez having “split” to get a comment about whether she stood by her reporting, and not surprisingly we did not get a response.
