Niall Horan is reportedly dating a new girl (and, no, it's not Melissa Anne Whitelaw). Instead, the One Direction guy has been linked to the Australian opening act of the band's On the Road Again tour, a pop star named Samantha Jade!

According to New Idea magazine, they've been secretly dating over the last few weeks.

"Samantha [went on a few dates] with Niall while the tour's been on…She kept asking him to make it public," their source said.


The pop star recently posted a photo celebrating their time together, but she was with the entire band (and not even close to Niall).

Of course, they may only be linked together because he's single! We haven't seen any photos of the two of them alone together, so the Melly rumors are a lot more convincing.

We'll just have to wait and see if they're caught hanging out. She only performed on their Australian tour dates, so it will be a lot more interesting if they're spotted together when they're not on tour with each other.

Do you think that Niall is dating Samantha? Would they make a cute couple? Sound off in the comments!
