Demi Lovato "admits to Niall Horan romance"
The Disney star turned US X Factor
judge has been linked to Niall on-off for months but always denied rumours of romance - until now.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Demi's told the guys backstage she and Niall are loosely dating
- it's casual but they are definitely dating, albeit long-distance."
Irish Niall has confessed in the past that Demi is his celebrity crush, so no doubt he'll be chuffed to have charmed the 20-year-old.
But the news comes as a bit of a shock as Niall, 18, recently admitted that he prioritises his mates over love.
He told the Daily Mail: "I try to go and see my friends but that’s easier to do than go out with a girlfriend.
"I couldn’t be bothered, and it’s pure laziness on my part. Traveling around the world and all the promo that we do - it doesn’t leave time for a girlfriend. It really doesn’t."
Furthermore, it wasn't too long ago that Demi - who went to rehab in 2010 to battle an eating disorder - insisted she was single.
She said: "There’s actually nothing that a guy can do to change my mind right now. It doesn’t matter how frickin’ good-looking you are, or funny, or how in love with them I am.
"Right now, there’s nobody more important to me than myself and my recovery.”
