Isn't it great being filthy rich? You land yourself in a little PR disaster - branding your fans a shower of hoors (or something like that) - apologise on Twitter and then swan off to Marbella on your jolliers until everything dies down, hoping that during such time, us Gossip b*tches will have moved on to something more pressing.
Sadly for One Direction's Niall Horan, his little trip to Spain has only incited further speculation. Has he got a girlfriend? Who is this Spanish beauty? Is she even Spanish? Nice to see though that she's probably in and around the same age as our Niall, unlike the women (read: oul ones) that his pal Harry Styles hangs out with.
Whatever the story is here, one thing's for sure: the flak he received last week is the last thing on his mind.
In other One Direction news, Harry Styles was reportedly dating Made in Chelsea TV star Caggie Dunlop for a while but give that she's just 23 years of age, Styles was quick to squash this rumour.
While this could be the first normal relationship for the young popstar, sadly a source close to Styles told the Daily Mail: 'Harry is not dating Caggie and is not romantically involved with her.'
But then we're not sure any relationship will work out for Styles at the moment because APPARENTLY, he's just not over Caroline Flack yet. Now feel free to speculate about how much truth there is to this but as per The Sun, a source says: "Harry has never quite got over what he had with Caroline. They had such fun together... The insider continued: "He sent her a few texts just to test the water as a lot has happened since they were together - particularly Harry being linked to a series of girls."
Always hard to get over your first love, Harry. We know your pain. *Sniff *Tear.
