Niall Horan has been linked to a whole host of beauties, with the most recent being Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin and although the snaps were taken after the Irish heartthrob's mother Maura Gallagher did her interview, she did speak out recently to hint that the romance rumours may not be true, because her son is linked to every girl who he is photographed with.
Other ladies who Niall has been linked to include the likes of X Factor's Tamera Foster, model Zoe Whelan and Ellie Goulding, but Maura has said that Niall can't hang out with any girl without being surrounded by dating rumours.
Does this mean that he ISN'T romancing Barbara Palvin after all?

Niall's mum told Star magazine in response to her son constantly being linked to someone: "Everyone that he poses for a photograph with or spends any longer than a few minutes with, he's said to be dating.
"That picture of him backstage at The X Factor [with Tamera Foster] is the latest one!," she added, clearly before Niall was spotted out with Palvin over the weekend.
She then continued: "You have to ignore the hype because you'd go out of your mind if you believed everything that was written."

Maura also spoke out about whether or not she thought that the 1D boys would be heading for a breakdown anytime soon, telling the mag: "I don't think they would look crooked [be interested] at those things.
"They have great people around them and I hope they're protected from that sort of thing."Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge In Festive Red For PreChristmas Lunch With The Queen
