Dua Lipa rules out flings with Niall Horan and Harry Styles
DUA LIPA wants to set the record straight about her love life — including rumours that she has dated not one, but two members of One Direction.
In an exclusive chat with Guilty Pleasures at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards, the singer ruled out reported flings with Niall Horan and Harry Styles — but called boxer Anthony Joshua a ‘sweetheart’. Fans suspected a romance with Niall, 23, when he performed her track Scared To Be Lonely at a gig in the US last month. ‘No, we’re just friends,’ insisted Dua, 21.
‘The second anyone makes friends in the industry, people think they’re dating or together.’
But she admitted she is close to the Irish charmer: ‘He’s super-lovely and, yeah, we speak very often.’ As for Hazza, also 23, who she was seen with just before Christmas, Dua clarified: ‘I wasn’t dating him.’
However, the Be The One singer is rather smitten with AJ, who presented her with the breakthrough artist gong. ‘He is such a sweetheart,’ she said. ‘I’ve been to a few of his fights.’
And does she think the 27-year-old heavyweight champ is Hotter Than Hell? ‘I do think he is,’ laughed Dua, dazzling in a cut-out black gown at Tuesday’s lavish London do in Berkeley Square, Mayfair.
Her self-titled debut album is out now, and she signed copies for fans at HMV Westfield earlier this week.
