He came and got it, alright.
One Direction star Niall Horan star and Selena Gomez made out at a party in Los Angeles on Friday, E! News is reporting.
The two stars reportedly spent the night kissing, hugging and dancing closely together at Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s 35th birthday bash — leading some to believe a new power couple is emerging in Hollywood.
“Niall and Selena definitely seemed very close and like they were together,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.
Both Gomez, 23, and Horan, 22, performed at the KIIS FM 2015 Jingle Ball show at the Staples Center earlier in the night, with the One Direction crooner reportedly staying late to watch the “Come & Get It” singer take the stage.
The duo then reportedly left the arena at the same time, and they were seen together at the party shortly after.
“Niall got there first with his bodyguard, then the next thing I know, I looked over and Selena was there,” the insider told Us Weekly. “They were very close together, talking and whispering.”
Raquelle Stevens shared this Instagram photo from Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s birthday party, which features both Gomez (center) and Horan (back, center).
The popular artists then left the party together, with Gomez holding Horan’s arm as they departed, the source told the magazine.
Gomez’s alleged fling with Horan comes just two weeks after she spent an evening with her longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The two stars, who dated intermittently from 2010 to 2014, showed some affection as they enjoyed a leisurely stroll together in Beverly Hills — and Bieber even serenaded his former flame with a pair of songs at a hotel bar that evening.
Early Sunday morning, soon after the reports of Gomez and Horan’s romance emerged, Bieber shared a throwback photo of himself holding hands with Gomez, along with the caption, “Crazy throwback.”
Horan, Gomez and several other friends went out to dinner together in Los Angeles late last month, just days after the “Good For You” singer spent the evening with Bieber. Reports at the time, however, claimed Gomez and Horan were only friends.
Gomez revealed to InStyle UK magazine in late November that she was dating again, and even admitted she’d be interested in going on a date with Horan’s former bandmate, ex-One Direction star Zayn Malik, if he asked her out.
