Don’t start shipping Niall Horan and Selena Gomez again just yet!!
After the two were spotted arm in arm at popular El Lay restaurant Osteria Mozza with friends, romance rumors reignited once more for the two.
Fans of Gomez and the One Direction alum will recall in late 2015 when reports began to circulate things were heating up between the friends after they were seen hanging out at Nobu with the Taki Taki collaborators’ parents, at the Santa Monica pier, and even at a party for X Factor UK.

Ch-ch-check out the two looking awfully close among shared pals:

with all of our schedules and travel, we don’t get to see each other as often as maybe we would like, but every time we do get to sit down and share a meal together, it makes me emotional and so happy. and seeing my favorite people embrace my now husband makes me want to cry. they’re really all family. 🖤
However, despite their recent group hang and potential fling in the past, a source spilled to E! News the two are just friends:
“Selena and Niall are not dating and have been hanging out as friends. They have always been good friends and have kept in touch throughout the years.”
Furthermore, the insider hinted we could possibly be getting a musical collaboration from them down the road:
“They both always have been very supportive of each other’s music and have talked about collaborating before.”
The Ireland native recently released a new tune Nice To Meet Ya, and the Disney Channel alum was quick to show support for her pal via Instagram Story on Friday:
