Selena Gomez Moving On From Justin Bieber With One Direction's Niall Horan?
The 'Falling Down' singer has apparently become envious of her friend Taylor Swift and Harry Styles' relationship.
Selena Gomez is reportedly looking to move on from her former relationship with Justin Bieber with One Direction star Niall Horan.
The Disney star's romance with the Canadian singer has continued to cause speculation in recent weeks after it was rumoured they split back in November.
A source told Hollywoodlife that the female star has since seen how Taylor Swift got over ex Conor Kennedy with Harry Styles and is eying up trying something similar with the Irish star.
"She has seen what has happened with her friend Taylor and how dating Harry is getting her to get over her relationship with Conor Kennedy," the insider revealed. "Selena has said that she wants to start dating someone else to see if there is something better out there."
Niall has most recently been linked with X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato, although both stars have continued to deny they are anything more then friends.
Harry has recently been seen in the UK with girlfriend Taylor as he gave her a tour of his hometown and this week visited his favourite LA tattoo parlour with the country star as he added to his inkwork collection .
