Niall Horan has rubbished rumours that claim he is dating X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, insisting that they are like brother and sister, but admitting that she is “cool as f**k!”
Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Niall said,
“I’ve got loads of good female friends, like Tulisa, but every time I’m pictured with her, people say we’re going out. I don’t really have a type, but for banter she’s brilliant. She loves playing PlayStation. Tulisa is cool as f**k.”
Last August, Tulisa partied with the One Direction singer backstage at the V Festival, where she said they pretended to be brother and sister to fool passers-by. She said,
“We had such a good time. We were dressed in our hoodies and sunglasses, walking around the crowd.
“And because we’re both blonde and the same height we pretended to be brother and sister.
“The second people walk past and say, ‘Is that…?’ we’d start being really loud, shouting at each other in northern accents like, ‘What have you done with me ciggies?’ or ‘Pass us that bloody pint, if our mother was here now she’d blooming kill us! Aahh, come on Chez!”
To be fair, a romance between the pair does seem unlikely, as Niall has repeatedly been linked to X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato and Tulisa is rumoured to be dating Shameless actor, Jody Lantham, after he appeared in the video for her new single, Sight of You.
