Relationship with Niall
Niall is now a celebrity. Greg, however, has no significant career. Initially, they shared a cordial relationship. Niall was the “best man” at Greg’s wedding in 2013. The media was overwhelmed to see the amazing bond between the brothers during the wedding. Greg is married to Denise Kelly.
Initially, Niall supported Greg financially when he was jobless. Greg, too, has constantly supported his brother and the band, 'One Direction,' through his social-media accounts.

In 2017, Niall reportedly cut all communication with Greg, who was believed to be jobless at the time. A close family member stated that Greg was jealous of Niall’s success. He could not tolerate the fact that Niall had appeared on 'The X Factor.' Greg has judged the Mullingar talent competition 'Clarke's Got Talent.'

As a result of this, Greg showed his displeasure against Niall on social media. He later posted a statement saying that he no longer wanted his brother's assistance and could find a job without any support. This was not the first time Greg had posted something against Niall.
