Back in March, there were reports that Niall Horan made a move on Selena Gomez at the Kids Choice Awards and Justin Bieber told the One Direction cutie to step off. Two months later, the Biebs and the boy band are allegedly still at odds!
Although his rep has denied the incident ever occurred, according to The National Enquirer (via Gossip Cop), Justin and One Direction are still "locking horns ... in a jealous feud over Selena."
"Justin is furious with One Direction, and Niall in particular for going after Selena," a "source" dishes to the mag.
In fact, Justin is allegedly "on the warpath" because he's not just worried about losing SelenaÂ—he's worried about losing his popularity, as well!
"Justin feels so threatened by One Direction's worldwide success he turned down their management team's offer for him to collaborate with them. There's just a lot of bad blood between Justin and One Direction," The Enquirer's source says.
Between Justin and The Wanted, One Direction is rumored to have "a lot of bad blood" with a lot of people. Maybe The Wanted and the Biebs can team up and fight 1D West Side Story-style. Or maybe not, because "sources close to both One Direction and Bieber" tell Gossip Cop that The Enquirer's claims couldn't be further from the truth. But even if "sources" didn't refute The Enquirer's report, it seems pretty obvious that Justin doesn't have anything to worry about: Success-wise, "Boyfriend" has broken sales records and his upcoming tour is projected to be one of the biggest of the year, and Selena-wise, Niall reportedly has a new girlfriend and probably won't be hitting on the Spring Breakers star again anytime soon. Hopefully Justin and One Direction will collaborate on something soon and put all these rumors to rest!
