When One Direction's Niall Horan was asked about the purported break up of band mate Liam Payne and his girlfriend, Danielle Peazer, he would neither confirm nor deny the report.
According to a report from Sugarscape, a rumor went wild in the past couple of days about Liam and Danielle splitting up, but so far no official comment has emerged from either camp. When Niall appeared as a radio show guest, the host figured he'd be the one to set matters straight.
The host started the questioning in a rather sly manner, asking Niall if the One Direction guys are ever misrepresented in the media.
"Obviously a lot of the stories aren't true, but it doesn't really bother me," Niall replied."They're only little niggly stories and then you can clear it up yourself and say that story wasn't true."
Score one for Niall, and zero for the show's host.
Pulling out the big guns, the questioning continuedÂ—this time asking Niall directly if rumors about Liam Payne and Danielle Peazer breaking up was true.
"I can't confirm that, you're going to have to ask Liam," he said.
Good for Niall Horan for not reporting news that may not be his to share, and while you have to give the host an "A" for effort, sometimes these guys need to learn that not everyone is out to shine in the spotlight, especially when it's at someone else's expense.
No one has asked Harry Styles or Zayn Malik yet about Liam and Danielle. Hopefully neither of them is scheduled for a radio show in the next few days.
Of course, they could always steal Niall's line. It worked for him!
