Drama seriously kicked off on Twitter this morning as Eleanor Calder spoke out against a journalist who claimed to have the 'first ever interview' with Sophia Smith about Liam Payne's new relationship with Cheryl NoSurname.

But someone who's not keeping up with the 1D fandom is Niall Horan, who clearly has no bloody idea about what's going on as he's been innocently hanging out with someone slightly controversial amidst all of that hoo-har.

He's over in LA at the moment having a lovely bit of time off, but after he was spotted playing a bit of football yesterday, some people reckon that Niall has BETRAYED Liam. Eh?

It'd take approximately seventeen sledge hammers and maybe a bulldozer to make a dent in the never-ending Niam bromance, but when Niall Horan was spotted hanging out with Robbie Keane, Steven Gerrard and ASHLEY COLE yesterday, it caused a whole load of new drama.

Yup, that would be the same Ashley Cole who used to be married to Cheryl before sensationally cheating on her multiple times. Erm, do you wanna tell Niall or shall we..?

It's obviously a bit OTT to call it a 'betrayal' when Niall almost definitely has no bloody clue what's going on in the celeb world at the moment, seeing as he's purposefully taking time AWAY from all of that stuff.

So don't mind Nialler over there, innocently playing football and potentially completely unaware that he's having a kick about with his best mate's new girlfriend's cheating ex-husband.

OH NO NIALL.

Nothing like a bit One Direction-based irony to hit you smack-bang in the face and marvel at the way the universe works.
