8 Boy-Banders Who Dated the Member of a Girl Group
TBH, boy-banders and girl group-ers were probably made for each other. Who else could better understand the loyal — if not obsessive — fans, the flashing lights, rabid paparazzi and fame except someone who is literally going through the exact same thing. Though you might think members of boy bands and girl groups are constantly pairing up, a lot of the time the speculation is pure fiction.
Niall Horan has been romantically linked to two Little Mix girls, including Jade Thirlwall… who was also at the center of some rumors linking her to Nick Jonas AND The Vamps‘ Connor Ball… at the same freakin’ time!
We’ve gotta admit, the evidence that Jade & Nick were totes a thing is pretty convincing. The two both made it public that they were crushing on one another, plus Jade’s bandmates suggested there was something going down in the DMs… yet the two hotties were never spotted out together.
Jade and Connor were linked too, but after a bunch of he said/she said, he ultimately claimed that nothing happened.
In both cases, they’d need a bit more evidence (at least some proof that they’d met IRL) to qualify for this list. The following pairs were CONFIRMED duos — both willingly and not-so-willingly:
Liam Payne from One Direction
DATED: Cheryl from Girls Aloud
Despite their 10-year age difference, Cheryl and Liam have a ton in common... including the fact that they both rose to fame as members of a same-gender pop group that was created for a television show!
Girls Aloud was formed in 2002 as part of a show called Popstars: The Rivals, while One Direction came to fruition in 2010 on The X Factor... which Cheryl judged!Liam and Cheryl recently had an adorable baby boy named Bear. With his genes, he'll be joining a music group in no time.
