The Victoria's Secret model stepped out in London last night (18 February) to attend the Elle Style Awards and decided to set the record straight on her supposed romance with One Direction singer Niall.
Speaking about her various sightings with the pop star, Barbara explained that she is a "tomboy" at heart and is more drawn to hanging out with guys than girls.
"Niall is my friend," she said. "I have always been a girl who hangs out with boys and I'm not going to change that. Even though people talk about it, I'm still going to be me.
"I'm a tomboy, I play football and I like to hang out with guys, so me and Niall hang out. I'm not going to change my personality."
Nevertheless, Barbara did admit that she and the Irish chart-topper have a lot of fun together - although his 1D bandmates are just as attractive as he is.
"Niall is a lovely guy, he's fun and sarcastic all the time," she said. "I'm sarcastic too, so we get along well.
"I like all the One Direction boys – they're all really nice people. I don't know who I fancy the most, they are all so hot!"
Barbara and Niall were first rumoured to be dating after being caught at a cinema in London together.
They were also spotted at a JLS gig with one another, but earlier this year the twosome were speculated to have split up due to their hectic work schedules.
However, now we have heard Barbara's side of the story, it seems those outings were nothing more than a couple of friends catching up.
Meanwhile, Niall was seen hanging out with Selena Gomez in the capital this week. Another gal pal perhaps?
