- One Direction star Harry Styles spent the night with Rod Stewart's daughter Kimberly
- 'Grey's Anatomy' star Patrick Dempsey would consider selling pot in his coffee shops
- ‘Silver Liver Playbook’ star Bradley Cooper is a hopeless romantic
- Niall Horan says eating Irish sausages and playing Croke Park will be ‘biggest moment’ in One Direction career
- One Direction's boys claim their tour bus is surprisingly boring
One of them reported that Niall’s dad in Co. Westmeath texted his 1D bandmate Harry Styles to warn him about his son’s alcohol use and to keep an eye on him. But, surprise surprise, the story is false.
“It’s complete bulls***,” a source told the Irish Sun. “As if members of his family would even talk about something like that if it were true. It’s all rubbish. Niall has his head well screwed on.”
In better news for the teen heartthrob, Horan is the top Irish guy on Twitter with more than six million followers. The Belfast Telegraph says that Rory McIlroy is the next most popular Irishman with a million followers, so clearly it’s going to take some doing to best Niall, who adds thousands of new fans every day.
“What a surprise to wake up to! Six million followers! Guys u are amazing, can’t say it enough. Thank you!” he tweeted on Monday after passing the six mil mark.
