“Oh my god! No,” Gomez responded when asked to set the record straight about the status of their relationship, adding, “I love him, I always have. He’s amazing.”

So if the former Disney star and the Story of My Life singer are not together, perhaps they are just close friends.

The duo was also reportedly seen getting very close at Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s 35th birthday on December 4. Then, on December 5, Gomez and Horan continued to fuel dating rumors when they were spotted having a night out with friends in Santa Monica.

But this isn’t the first time it is speculated that she’s with a One Direction band member. Gomez also opened up about the dating rumors regarding former member Zayn Malik in an interview with InStyle UK.

“If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him,” she told the magazine. “Just kidding, but not kidding.”
