Remember when Niall Horan of One Direction was straight up flirting with singer Ellie Goulding on Twitter over the last few months? Well it apparently paid off because sources claim that the "Best Song Ever" singer was spotted locking lips with the newly single Goulding at the 2013 V Festival in Hyde Park. Ellie had previously dated actor Jeremy Irvine up until about a month ago. Unfortunately, bodyguards were blocking the rumored couple so no photos were taken.

In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Niall was asked about his love life. He explained: "We go back on the road straight after a show and we're gone. I wish we did have time for girls and parties but we don't."

However, Niall added this quote for the publication: "I'll say one thing: Ellie Goulding - wow. She's absolutely amazing looking."

This straightforward flirting presumably paid off! Again, there are no pictures to confirm the relationship, but Niall seemed pretty ecstatic about attending the festival. Perhaps because he spent his time kissing the girl of his dreams?

Reps for One Direction have not responded to these claims while Goulding's team insists the singers are "just good friends."

Over the last few months, the singers' Twitter followers might have noticed some flirtatious tweets being exchanged. After the two met in person, they immediately hit it off and started talking over social networks, which also included some tweets linking to photos and music projects.

"Just listening to some @elliegoulding ! What a talent she is! Beautiful voice ! (sic)" Horan said.

Ellie then responded: "I knew you loved me hahaha. (sic)".

Ellie had posted some One Direction concert photos to her Instagram, which of course kept the rumors going. Also, Niall told his followers to listen to Ellie's newest single, "Burn." He was really trying hard to get on her good side. It apparently worked!

Do you think Niall finally got his dream girl?
