The X Factor USA judge has denied claims she’s dating the 1D hunk…
Demi Lovato has quashed speculation suggesting she’s in a relationship with One Direction star Niall Horan, insisting he is NOT her boyfriend.
The X Factor USA judge has been constantly linked to Niall for months, with recent reportseven claiming that the pair were “loosely dating.”
Earlier this week, a source toldThe Mirror: “Demi’s told the guys backstage she and Niall are loosely dating – it’s casual but they are definitely dating, albeit long-distance.”
However, Lovato has since admitted that while she has a “little crush” on Niall, they are not in a relationship.
Speaking of Horan, the 20-year old told Teen Vogue: “He’s a really awesome, sweet guy. But he’s not my boyfriend.”
Demi also addressed her new role as a judge on XF USA, telling the publication that she did not hesitate when it came to joining the panel.
She revealed: “It was a no-brainer! Right before I got the offer, I’d been sitting in a meeting feeling really discouraged [about my career], wishing I was further along.
“And I decided that I needed to stop thinking about what I wished I had and start thinking about what I was going to have. I was ready to do something new, and I wanted to put that out there, in the universe… and then [Simon Cowell] called, literally, a week and a half later.”
The former Disney star recently poked fun at SiCo while being interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, joking that the music mogul “shows more cleavage than I do.”
