|Holly Scally and Niall Horan|
Westmeath native Holly Scally hit back at crazed fans who sent her hate mail and claimed that the blond had died after losing a battle with cancer.
Scally tweeted: “Apparently I'm dead. Aaah. Serious all you f****** one Direction fans need to f*** off and make up rumours about someone else!
"I'm not dead or pregnant! Bye now."
The Evening Herald reports that the disturbing rumor started when someone posted online:
"Guys, I had some really bad news, Niall's ex-girlfriend has passed away due to cancer.
"In respect, I will be posting a picture soon of both of them."
Just an hour later a thread entitled RIPHollyScally was trending on a social networking site.
Last night Scally wrote to Horan directly and said "You have some f****** crazy fans! Some [of] which you should be ashamed of tbh [to be honest]. Bit mad."
The teenagers split before Horan shot to stardom with One Direction.
Referring to their break up, Holly said on Twitter: "Can't remember [why we split up], was two years ago.
"Just didn't [work out] tbh. Better as friends".
