For Halloween this year, instead of something spooky, let’s talk about a tale of deceit and betrayal. Don’t know what I mean? I’m talking about the friendship triangle between Greg James, Niall Horan, and Shawn Mendes. And how things went south between them.
The whole thing started earlier this month when Greg was left hanging by Shawn Mendes who failed to ring in live for his Radio 1 interview. However, Shawn was “mortified” and thus sent a sweet and most polite text of apology. And well, things escalated. The two ended up swapping haircare tips and became the best of buds.
And then came Niall who was pretty miffed off about the whole thing. Why, you ask? Well because he and Greg were the best of friends before Shawn came into Greg’s life.
Niall, trying to poke fun at his best friend’s new friendship, the One Direction star decided to leave him a text that went quite like this:
‘Hey, Greg it’s Niall Horan. ‘Just to let you know I use Redken Rough Paste in my hair. See you soon x.’
Greg replied back to him, saying, ‘You wanna get on the oil m8,’ to which Niall replied back with a string of laughing face emojis.
At this point, Greg knew what Niall was up to. He knew he was jealous. So what did he do? Instead of giving his best friend positive affirmations, Greg decided to rub salt into his wound of betrayal.
He sent him another text saying,
‘When you get to the luscious length Shawn and I have, you’ll understand x.’
Of course, the One Direction star had to try and keep his dignity intact. He fired back with a text that said, ‘two mops.’
New Updates About The Greg-Shawn-Niall Triangle
A screenshot of their exchange was shared by Greg on Instagram. He captioned it,
‘Someone’s getting jealous…cc: @shawnmendes.’
He also changed Niall’s contact name to ‘ex-best friend Niall’ in a cheeky turn of events.
Niall shared his appreciation for Greg’s post by commenting with a string of laughing emojis (that he loves, in case you could not tell) and encouraged his fans to ‘try the hair oil.’ Even Greg agreed with Niall and was quick to jump on Shawn’s pampering bandwagon, saying, ‘YES NIALL. TRY THE OIL.’
We don’t know what to make of this surprising turn of events. But one thing is for sure, quarantine life has been hard on every one of us. Even the stars.
