One Direction's Niall Horan may seem like a hardy individual, but underneath that peri-peri sauce coated exterior is actually a pretty sensitive soul.

Sightings of this mythical inner creature may be rarer than seeing Harry Styles driving about in his Range Rover without a female passenger, but it sounds like Goldilocks has been feeling a tad emotional about some unidentified rumours about him on Twitter this week.

One Direction's Niall Horan has an amotional outburst on Twitter about rumours

Having had a rather exciting evening picking up a Bambi Award, Niall thanked fans for support on Twitter. But as well as showing his gratitude, he seemed to want fans to know how much he dislikes rumours.

"Long day! Thank you germany! See ya soon,off to bed! I hate rumours by the way," he tweeted. [sic]

"Let's all be happy !While everything is cool!Just don't listen to any of it please! We're all in this together, let's look out for eachother."

Despite all that High School Musical inspired outpouring, at least Nialler's got the other lads to rely on.

"Everytime i listen to our band ! it just makes me think...this is why i love music soo much..its an incredible thing.
