A teenager who has been romantically linked to One Direction singer Niall Horan was forced to take down her social media page after being bombarded with nasty messages.
Zoe Whelan an aspiring model reported to be Horan's current flame, last night denied they were a couple despite being the singer's guest at his brother's wedding last month.
"No, me and Niall are not dating," she said on Twitter last night. "Now I've settled the rumours you can all go back to your own lives. Please stop tweeting me rude things."
She later took down her Twitter page.
The 19-year-old popstar struck up a friendship with Ms Whelan (18), who is the niece of one of his bodyguards, backstage at a concert in recent months.
She watched Niall perform on stage while One Direction were at the O2 in Dublin.
