The Spring Breakers actress apparently got the One Direction man's number from country star Taylor Swift.

One Direction singer Niall Horan reportedly once turned down a date with Selena Gomez because of his friendship with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

The 'Little Things' singer is good friends with the teen titan and is claimed to wanted to keep way from any trouble.

Now magazine claims that Taylor Swift helped Selena get in touch with the Irish singer and it all occurred during the time she was dating Harry Styles.

"Not only are they friends, but Niall's keen to avoid any trouble with Justin," a source told the publication. "He knows dating Selena could've prompted a war with Justin."

Justin and Selena were also recently rumoured to be getting back together after the Canadian posted a picture of the pair looking intimate on Instagram. 

The couple split at the end of 2012 and the female star told Ellen DeGeneres last month that it was going to be difficult dating after her near two-year romance with the 'As Long As You Love Me' singer.

Meanwhile, One Direction are currently on the road with their 'Take Me Home' world tour- which resumed in Paris over the weekend.
