Niall Horan & Hailee Steinfeld Spark Dating Rumors After Hangin’ in Vegas

By  | 

When Niall Horan called Hailee Steinfeld “the loveliest person on the planet” on her birthday, people FREAKED out and dating rumors started swirling almost immediately. The 21-year-old was quick to respond to the speculation, but didn’t really do much to answer fans’ questions.

“I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of every day, but I think that sometimes it’s hard for people, in general, to realize that there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life,” she told Us Weekly. “I’m a very private person. I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I’m comfortable with and they’re there to listen and support me.”


All was quiet on the Nailee front for a while, but then the celebs attended a Backstreet Boys concert in Las Vegas together over the weekend and looked quite close.

A source told E! News the pair went to XS Nightclub after the BSB show and hung out at a VIP table with friends while Diplo did a DJ set.

Nothing is confirmed about the status of Niall and Hailee’s relationship at this point, but the “Let Me Go” singer did reportedly split from boyfriend Cameron Smoller recently and doesn’t want to get into anything new, even though he does.

“She’s not actively pursuing anything,” a source explained to People magazine. “Niall is really into her but she’s unsure if she wants to get into something new right away.”

Let us just point out that Niall and Hailee HAVE been friends for a while and it IS possible for members of the opposite sex to hang out platonically.
