Cowell had recently said he was “expecting to announce something soon with Niall”.
Niall Horan has reportedly made the shock decision to sign a solo record deal with Universal Music, instead of Simon Cowell’s Syco label. According to reports, the label pursued Niall to sign a deal after failing to lure away Harry Styles, who ended up staying with Sony, the label which houses Cowell’s Syco.
Has Niall Horan inked a solo deal with Universal?
A US source told the Daily Star: “This will come as a real blow to Cowell who has been talking to Niall for months, wanting him to sign a deal with his label Syco. He made a number of big money offers to try and persuade Niall to sign up but, in the end, Universal came in and put even more money on the table.
The One Direction members say they’ve been targeted by fans leaving “disgusting” messages on their phones.
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has said he’s been forced to change his phone number after receiving “disgusting” messages on WhatsApp from “losers”. His bandmate Niall Horan has also had the same problem, revealing that he too has received “horrific” messages on the app.

Horan is rumoured to be about to sign a solo record deal with Sony, who also own Cowell's Syco imprint.
Niall Horan has been the quietest of the One Direction boys since the band announced its hiatus at the end of 2015, but a new interview with the band’s mentor Simon Cowell suggests that he might be preparing a solo career in the very near future.
People magazine spoke to the Syco music mogul on Wednesday (July 27th), and in it he praised the “loyalty” of the remaining 1D members by name – except Liam Payne, strangely – and intimated that it would soon be Horan’s turn to launch a solo career. Reports also indicate that it will be Sony (part of the same group as Syco) with whom the 22 year old singer will be inking a deal.

Payne recently signed a solo deal with Capitol Records, whose owner Universal is a rival of Sony.
They’ve only been on hiatus for a few months, but it appears Simon Cowell is already having trouble remembering the names of all the One Direction boys. Speaking at an ‘America's Got Talent’ press conference, Cowell failed to mention member Liam Payne while he was praising the loyalty of the boyband.
Has Simon Cowell forgotten about Liam Payne already?
When asked about the band Cowell said: "We're in touch with them. The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don't always expect that. Niall, Harry, Louis - amazing.”
Horan is the cover star of the new edition of Today's Golfer, and revealed he used to play golf to escape the stresses of 1D on tour.
While his bandmates are variously looking after babies and launching solo careers during the group’s hiatus, One Direction’s Niall Horan has been enjoying life outside the band in a rather more low-key way. He’s just scored his first non-1D-related magazine cover – for Today’s Golfer, of all things!
The 22 year old performer is the cover star of the latest issue of the golfing magazine, and in a feature interview reveals that he used to play the sport regularly while on tour with One Direction in order to escape the stresses of being in the world’s most popular boyband.
Niall isn't spilling too much on his bandmate’s romance, but says there is ‘a story’ behind Liam and Cheryl.
One Direction’s Niall Horan has spoken about his bandmate Liam Payne’s relationship with Cheryl, revealing, ‘there's a little bit of a story behind it’. The One Direction boys have known Cheryl since she was a judge on the ‘X Factor’ in 2010 where the group was formed. But last year her friendship with Liam took a romantic turn following her split from husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
There's a story behind Liam and Cheryl’s romance, according to Niall Horan.
Speaking in the new issue of Hello! magazine, Niall said: "There's a little bit of a story behind it but I won't be telling you that. She's a great girl, really fun. He's a top man and one of my best friends. She seems happy, he's happy, so I'm happy for them.”

It’s not the One Direction reunion fans had been hoping for
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan will be reunited this Sunday (June 5th) during charity football match Soccer Aid, in support of Unicef. But while the two singers spent years making music together before One Direction went on hiatus in January, this Sunday they’ll be on opposing teams.
One Direction mates Niall and Louis will face off at Soccer Aid on Sunday.
Louis will be playing for the England team, alongside celebs including Olly Murs, Jack Whitehall and assistant manager Robbie Williams. While Niall will be on the Rest of the World team with Kasabian’s Sergio Pizzorno and actor Michael Sheen.
The One Direction star said the group have been targeting him for the past two weeks.
One Direction’s Niall Horan took to Twitter on Tuesday evening, to call out a group of ‘abusive’ fans, who have been constantly sending him messages. The singer said the group have sent him texts saying ‘things you wouldn’t even believe’ about him, his family and even his young nephew.
Niall Horan says he’s been receiving abusive messages from fans for two weeks.
‘For the last two weeks I've been receiving messages off a group of fans, they have drowned my phone in messages, keeping me awake at night,’ Horan tweeted. ‘But the worst part is. They have been nothing but abusive. Saying things you wouldn't even believe about me and my family.’
According to his friend, former AFL player Brendan Fevola, Horan is planning to move to Australia as he has a cousin who lives in Melbourne.
The reports, sure to disturb 1D fans who are increasingly concerned that the group’s much-vaunted hiatus might be significantly than they had bargained for, came after the 22 year old singer tweeted Fevola and Aussie cricket legend Shane Warne after they were spotted on the red carpet taking pictures together at the Logie Awards (celebrating the best in Australian television) on Sunday (May 8th).
Niall’s 25 million followers saw him write: “@BrendanFevola25 @ShaneWarne you two at the Logies together, I smell trouble.”

One Direction are said to not be reuniting any time soon.

The Directioner posted a selfie while he was travelling on the Northern Line, with none of the passengers realising who he was.
He’s been the quietest of the Directioners since the boyband went on hiatus at the end of last year, but you’d never say that Niall Horan is practically invisible to the public – until now. The singer posted a selfie on the London Underground with NOBODY recognising who he was.
The humble 22 year old elected to get on the Tube to travel around the capital on Friday night (March 25th) rather than use a private car. However, he posted a picture on Snapchat of himself travelling on the Northern Line with four fellow passengers sitting in the background, all totally unaware they were travelling with pop royalty.
Niall was wearing a green barbour jacket and a tweed flat cap in the picture, which was just captioned ‘TUBE!’

The band are nominated in the Best Video category for single ‘Drag Me Down’.
Yes they’re currently on hiatus, but many One Direction fans were hoping for a boyband reunion at tonight’s Brit Awards, where the group are expected to take home the Best Video award. But it seems only two members of the group will be in attendance tonight, with Harry Styles and Niall Horan missing out.
Don’t expect Harry Styles to make an appearance at tonight’s Brit Awards.
According to The Sun, Harry and Niall will snub the awards, even though Harry is thought to currently be in London. A source told the newspaper: “This could have been one last hurrah for the boys at what could be their last Brit Awards as a band.”
The 22 year old is using his break from 1D to set up an agency dedicated to discovering young golfing talent.
The Sun claimed on Wednesday (February 3rd) that the 22 year old, who is an enthusiastic follower of all kinds of sports, has set up a new firm called Modest Golf Management with the help of 1D’s existing management company (also called Modest).
The company will seek to uncover the best in young British and Irish golfing talent. Horan has set up the firm alongside Mark McDonnel, a former account manager at golf equipment brand TaylorMade, to help him with the project.

A source claimed that 1D had not renewed their recording contract, but a spokesperson for the group has denied the rumour.
The long-term future of One Direction may be bleaker than first imagined, with a new report suggesting that the British boy band might not return at all after their year-long hiatus they announced back in August last year.
Having wrapped up their On The Road Again tour in October 2015 and released their fifth album, Made in the A.M., weeks later, an unnamed source close to the group has told Us Weekly that the group has decided “not to renew their recording contract”, meaning that they intend to go in separate directions.
“The 1D thing just ran its course. They’ll remain friends, but they are exhausted and want solo careers.” Another insider added that the foursome might not pursue solo careers in front of a microphone.
Gomez 'loves' him, but she doesn't want to date him.
Are we looking at another popstar super couple? That's been the question on everybody's lips with Selena Gomez having been spotted in the company of One Direction's Niall Horan a few times recently. Alas, the former girlfriend of Justin Bieber is denying any suggestion of a new romance.
Selena Gomez quashes latest rumour regarding her love life
After Gomez and Horan were seen leaving Jenna Dewan-Tatum's 35th birthday party together on December 4th 2015, the rumour mill got swiftly up and running. Immediately, supposed witnesses flocked to Entertainment Tonight to make claims that they were seen kissing at the event and being very 'flirty' together. Since then, she has been seen backstage at the finale of the UK version of 'The X Factor' where One Direction were performing their songs 'Infinity' and 'History' at Wembley Stadium.

Have the 1D boys delivered the "rockier" sound they promised on their new album? No, not really
Have the One Direction boys suddenly decided to commemorate Lady Diana, the People's Princess, to coincide with the release of the Naomi Watts-starring film, Diana? Unlikely, but the leak does seem to be rather well-timed.
A new One Direction Song Has Been Leaked.
The band have just landed in Australia for the down-under section of their tour after the recent box office success of their on the road documentary movie, This Is Us. The band may be strapped aboard a skyrocket to fame and fortune, but this didn't stop their new single 'Diana' being leaked over the weekend.

Filmmaker Spurlock (Super Size Me) is known for his investigative wit, but there's none of that in this on-message doc about the most successful boy band in history. Still, the fans won't be able to get enough of the backstage antics and lively performance clips. And those unfamiliar with One Direction will have fun too. Just don't expect to learn much about these five young men who continually say, "Back when we were little," even though they're still only 19-21 years old.
The filmmakers follow Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis on their world tour, visiting four continents as they play nearly 130 concerts for their hysterical fans, who all seem to be pre-teen girls. As we see them larking around on-stage, in the wings and on their tour bus, we also get their back-story, as they auditioned individually for The X Factor in 2010 and were assembled as a group in a spontaneous decision by Cowell. Their global success is the result of a viral Twitter onslaught, and the fans also get their say on-screen, gushing with their love for these five skinny, mop-haired guys who have serious vocal talents but have yet to prove themselves as musicians.
While the film captures the boys' strong camaraderie, cheeky energy and constant pranks (including silly Jackass-style closing-credits clips), we never really learn much about them. There is no attempt to explore their off-stage identities, what they do in their down-time, their romantic lives or musical inspirations. Some depth is provided in interviews with their parents, who offer emotional insight into how fame has changed their families. Aside from some lively off-handed moments, their interviews feel carefully media-trained, and there's no commentary from anyone outside their inner circle. But they emerge as grounded, likeable young guys who know how lucky they are, so they're making the most of their success in the short time they have at the top.

The One Direction singer had to battle a sore throat during a recent performance and has only gotten worse since then
Niall Horan has forced to battle his way through a recent One Direction concert in Denver, Colorado, earlier this week and ended up feeling even worse for his efforts as he struggled to sleep on Wednesday (24 July) night.

Do the individual publishing deals suggest the boys are thinking about life after One Direction?
Ah, we was wondering when this was going to happen. One Direction have added a couple more million to their bank accounts, though this time they're thinking for themselves. Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne have signed SEPARATE publishing deals to cash in on all songs they have credits for writing.
It's a clear sign that the boys are beginning to look after their own interests following the phenomenal success of their first couple of years in the industry. The publishing deals are being overseen by Fingate, the company who also cash in on Elvis Presley's back catalogue as well as work by Britney Spears, Black Eyed Peas and Foo Fighters.
A source said: "This is a real statement of intent from the band. They have absolutely no intention of being spoon-fed pop puppets. They want to write and they want to earn as individuals." As well as the new deals, each of the five members have also invested in their own studio set-ups at home and have been attending writing sessions together after gigs. On their latest record Take Me Home, the band had three songs with individual writing credits while the others were penned by outsider songwriters. The group did not have a hand in writing the three biggest hits from the album, Live While We're Young, Kiss You and Little Things.

Niall Horan has apparently settled down with fellow Irish girl Zoe Whelan.
Niall Horan has gone and broken the little hearts of many, many One Direction fans this week, by hooking up with Irish model Zoe Whelan. The 19-year-old is said to have met Zoe backstage at one of the group's concerts and has been dating her for a number of months, according to The Sun.
"Niall has been secretly seeing Zoe for a couple of months after he met her backstage," an insider revealed. "She's a Dubliner but is based in London to work on her modelling career. Zoe's travelled all over the UK to meet up with Niall on the band's tour." Things appear to have got serious between the pair, and Horan took Zoe to meet the rest of his family at the wedding of his brother Greg in their hometown of Mullingar last month. "The biggest sign he's really serious about her is that he introduced her to his whole family at his brother's wedding," the insider added, "Zoe's the first girlfriend Niall has brought back to his hometown of Mullingar since making it big, so it was a big deal and the talk of his family at the wedding."
Niall is the latest One Direction member to enter into a serious relationship. Liam and Louis are thought to have steady girlfriends, though Zayn is on-and-off with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Harry Styles is, well, Harry Styles.

What’s this then? A last minute dash by Niall Horan to overtake Harry Styles as the bona fide hottie of One Direction? We’re not sure it’s going to work, Mr Styles has had the position long since sewn up, but respect to Niall anyway for trying. The Irish fella announced that he’d had his braces removed, and it has to be said it does look like they’ve done a wonder on his cheeky grin. What a dream boat.
Horan excitedly announced the news of the impending removal of his braces on Twitter, writing “Morning. ! This is it ! I'm goin to the dentist! I think this is my last hour with braces! Oh how I'm gona miss them ! Naaaaaaat !”
Afterwards young Niall seemed pretty chuffed with the results, posting a before and after picture on his Twitter and, we have to say, it did look an awful lot better. His fans agreed. “you perfect before,you're perfect now! you'll always be perfect ♥” wrote one fan, with another commenting “OMFG I'm dead. Your teeth are just so asdfghjkl perfect. I can't wait to get mine off now!!!!(-:” So good times all round for Niall! However, the Daily Mirror have pointed out that Madame Tussaud’s might not be too happy with Horan. They’ve just finished a waxwork model of the One Direction star including braces. Oops.

They're the biggest boyband in the world since coming third in the seventh series of 'The X Factor' in 2011 and they've had two number one multi-platinum albums since their inception. One Direction are now here on the big screen in their first movie which chronicles their rollercoaster lives and dramatic pop career over the past year or so. We'll see the die hard devotion of their army of fans, how the boys feel about being away from their home and families all the time, how they've built such a strong, brotherly bond as a group and their general boyish shenanigans.

Now that newlywed Marvin and Rochelle Wiseman from The Saturdays have moved out of the swish property, the 19-year-old 1D star has decided to move in but mischievous Marvin, 27, has taken the opportunity to play a few housewarming pranks on his fellow boy band buddy. 'Yes, I got him a moving-in present', he told The Mirror. It was a cushion with a picture of himself on. Our management had One Direction cushions. So I got a Niall face and left it in the house for him to see.' A pretty tame wind-up, we'll admit, but we're sure they have worse in store after discovering what one source revealed to the tabloid. 'Whiffy prawns hidden in the curtain rails were joked about', they said. 'And, of course, Niall will have to quickly change the locks so he doesn't end up with a member of JLS letting themselves in and roaming around in the early hours.'
We're also wondering if Niall splashing out a massive £2.2million on the house was also a prank after Marvin revealed: 'I gave him mates' rates'. Hmmm!
She admitted her feelings for the One Direction singer, as reported by Yahoo.com, when she said “He knows I have a little crush on him, and we enjoy having dinner when we get the chance. We speak and message all the time... [But] I don't want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush.”
However, talking with Teen Vogue and alluding to her recent stint in rehab, and her continued progress Lovato said of Niall: "He's a really awesome, sweet guy but [Niall]'s not my boyfriend...I'm in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself." She furthered her comment saying “Obviously, I'm still going to like people—or love them—but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be OK with being alone, first.” In 2010 the new X-Factor judge had to cancel her involvement with the Jonas Brothers tour and checked into rehab to tackle her depression and eating disorder.
