It seems as though X Factor judge, Demi Lovato, is doing all that she can to keep her relationship with One Direction’s Niall Horan, under wraps.
Even though she told Teen Vogue that her and One Direction’s very own Irish lad aren’t dating, The Mirror has just reported that that 20-year-old Lovato and 19-year-old Horan are ‘loosely dating’ because of the long distance that keeps them apart.
“He has a lot of great qualities,” she reportedly told The Mirror. “He is an amazing listener and makes me laugh a lot, two of the main qualities I look for. He knows I have a little crush on him, and we enjoy having dinner when we get the chance. We speak and message all the time.”
What else did Demi dish out on her secret relationship with Niall?
“I don’t want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush,” she said. “We share the philosophy that the right one is worth waiting for.”
Rumors of the two having a secret rendezvous made headlines after they were spotted having an intimate dinner in Los Angeles after the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 7th.
Despite the rumors, Demi graced the cover of Teen Vogue’s November issue where she told the magazine, “I’m in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself. Obviously, I’m still going to like people – or love them – but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be okay with being alone, first.”
But after seeing Liam Payne go through a tragic break up with his ex-girlfriend Danielle Peazer due to distance and a crazy schedule, Horan may be more cautious about having a long distance relationship with Lovato.
So what do you think of Niall and Demi ‘loosely dating?’
