So you know how Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were supposedly caught "kissing and cuddling" backstage after the X Factor final 2015, and everyone assumed they were doing the dating thing even though Sel literally point-blank denied it?
Well, what you might not have realised is that a bunch of rumours surrounding her friendship with sales exec Samuel Krost have *also* been swirling recently - with sources telling Celebuzz that they attended a party at 10AK together where she was supposedly "all over him."
This obviously doesn't fit in with the Nelena rumours, but another source at Hollywood Life claims that the Samuel/Selena rumours have been widely exaggerated and that Selena is still very much into Niall.
A source told HollywoodLife: "The pictures of Selena and Samuel may have looked more romantic than they really were, those two are well and truly in the friend zone. After being introduced to Samuel by their mutual pal Gigi Hadid last year, Selena maintained a friendship with him because she thinks he's so entertaining and funny. But she isn't attracted to him in anyway, she just loves his company."
Oh, and the same source also claims that Selena's definitely still "smitten" with Niall, and really missed him over the Christmas holidays - but insists that what they have is more a casual dating thing rather than a committed relationship.
