Niall James Horan (/naal hrn/; born September 13, 1993) is an Irish singer-songwriter. He rose to prominence as a member of One Direction, an English-Irish boy band formed in 2010 on the British singing competition The X Factor.
The group went on to become one of the best-selling boy bands of all time after releasing five albums. Following the band’s hiatus in 2016, Horan signed a solo recording contract with Capitol Records.
Niall Horan’s Net Worth
Niall Horan is a wealthy Irish singer with a net worth of $70 million.
Niall Horan is best known as a member of One Direction, but he also has a successful solo career.
Horan Was With One Direction for Several Years
Niall Horan, from Mullingar, Ireland, formed the band One Direction with Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson.
Each band member competed individually on the reality show X Factor in 2010, but they were grouped together to capitalize on the mega-potential of the “boy band” appeal. One Direction rose to prominence after being mentored by Simon Cowell.
The group released five albums prior to disbanding. In 2015, Malik abruptly left the group’s touring schedule. Initially, he called it a break, but he soon left the group for good.
While the remaining four members continued without him, it was evident that the group was facing difficulties. The band announced a hiatus in 2016, and as the years pass without any indication of a return, fans fear it may be permanent.
Horan, this is likely a positive development. He claims that the group could have ended up “killing each other” had they continued to fight.
Horan Has Been Pursuing a Solo Career
Following the dissolution of One Direction, Niall Horan embarked on a solo career. Horan was named “the most underestimated when it came to predictions for their post-band life” in a recent evaluation of the members’ post-One Direction careers by E News.
Horan appears to be on the rise as an artist in his own right, with a successful world tour and a Saturday Night Live solo performance behind him.
If One Direction fans are still hoping for a reunion, the news of Horan’s successful solo career may be disappointing. However, he isn’t the only former member who has made a name for himself, so fans now have a plethora of options for continuing to support and follow the group.
Horan’s Personal Life is a Source of Speculation
Fans enjoy deciphering Niall Horan’s love life. He was seen out and about with fellow musician Hailee Steinfeld on several occasions, and he expressed his admiration for her on social media.
However, it appeared that the two—who had never confirmed their relationship in the first place—divorced in late 2018.
He was similarly tight-lipped about previous relationships, but he was romantically linked to Australian model Melissa Whitelaw and singer Ellie Goulding.
The most recent rumors have speculated that he is dating Selena Gomez. They were seen together, and he referred to her as a “sweetheart” and a “really good friend” on social media. He also began blushing after recently flirting with megastar Lizzo.
Despite all of this investigation, it appears that Horan is still single for the time being.
