Demi Lovato denies rumors she’s dating One Direction star Niall Horan

“He’s really sweet, and he’s one of my really good friends now,” she recently said.

“I am single at the moment, and I plan to be for a long time because I need to focus on my career and myself and my well-being before I think about getting in a relationship.”

Romance rumors were sparked when Demi called the 18-year-old Irishman “adorable” during an interview.

In addition, Niall has reportedly revealed that they’ve been communicating via Skype.

“Demi’s a cool girl – she’s really nice. I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said.

Lovato is currently a judge on the X Factor show.
