Like us, you were probably extremely concerned when you looked at Hailee Steinfeld‘s Instagram Stories on Jan. 2 and saw that she was reposting some very cryptic posts about what it’s like dating a narcissist. Well, worry not, friends, because today the “Let Me Go” singer confirmed via Twitter that the reposts were not intended to be hidden messages about her ex-boyfriend, Niall Horan. What a relief!
The 22-year-old debunked the rumors that her Instagram Stories were aimed at the “Slow Hands” crooner by tweeting, “No hidden messages my loves. Just reposted an interesting read that I’m sure some of y’all can relate to. Nothing but love!”

This tweet comes one day after Hailee reposted several posts from Julia Michaels‘ story onto her own. The first included the “Issues” singer’s New Year’s resolution, which is to no longer date narcissists. However, when the Pitch Perfect 3 star added it to her own story with her own caption, fans instantly assumed she was shading the One Direction star.
The actress-turned-musician captioned the post with, “God bless you @juliamichaels. Preach it.” Clearly, she related to it on some level, so it makes total sense that fans thought it was about Niall. NGL, though, it did seem a bit out of character for the Niall we’ve come to know and love.
So, what about the rest of her Instagram Stories? Well, the next few slides were full of screen-grabs from an article published by Insider about what narcissists are like in relationships, and since the band member was her most recent boyfriend, it’s no surprise our heads went there first.
In other words, if you canceled Niall Horan after seeing Hailee’s Instagram Stories yesterday, it’s time to un-cancel him. Per her tweet from earlier, she was not referring to the “Too Much To Ask” musician at all, so you can all go back to being absolutely obsessed with him again. Phew!
