It used to be that Justin Bieber was the one who would light up Selena Gomez's world like nobody else  but these days, One Direction hottie Niall Horan seems to be filling that position quite nicely. Drama!

Rumor has it that Selena flew to London on February 15 to go on a date with Niall, according to Hollywood Life. And sources say that the two made out during their date!

So are Selena and Niall getting serious? Not quite. "Selena is happy, but it’s not looking like a huge relationship is going to come out of this recent hook-up. Friends with benefits is what she likes at this time," says a source about SelGo and Niall. "She’ll hang out with him again because he will be able to take her to some special places." Uh, okay.

A source adds, "Sel and [Niall] made out for a bit." And another insider adds, "Would she see [Niall] again? Yes. He’s being a gentleman, and that is great for her." Reportedly, it's Selena's bestie Taylor Swift who set Selena up with Niall, as T-Swift is not a fan of the Biebs.

However, word has it that Selena is dating Niall in part to make Justin upset. "She knows it’s going to piss Justin off because he always says that 1D is trying to steal his crown," says a source.

Evidently, her plan is working. "Justin feels like Selena is totally dissing him by hooking up with Niall," reports an insider. "He has a double standard. It’s alright if he hooks up with other people, but not if Selena does."

Okay, so that's a lot of hearsay from a lot of different sources. So do we believe this? We're not so sure, since Selena doesn't seem like the type to use make-out sessions as a weapon. Still, there have got to be worse problems to have than choosing between the Biebs and a guy from One Direction, right?

Do you think Selena and Niall seem cute together?
