Are Demi Lovato and Niall Horan Dating?

Could Demi Lovato and One Direction's Niall Horan be a new item?

Neither knew each other, but a series of interviews quickly got the ball rolling…

Grilled about his celebrity crush in an interview, Niall quickly replied, "Demi Lovato – she's a beautiful girl."

Demi was then asked the same question in another interview. "I love Niall," she gushed. "He is so cute. I hear he is really sweet and he's a cutey pie!"

Friends of the two intervened, and the two eventually met over Skype and began talking regularly. He even met her family when he was in the U.S. on tour with One Direction!

When asked by Ryan Seacrest on KIIS FM if the two were together, Demi replied "We've actually become really close friends and you know I'm really thankful I have someone who supports me in all aspects… But no, we're not dating."

Demi said she is only staying single because her busy schedule would make it impossible to give him her full attention.

But, who can know what the future holds? We think the two would be absolutely adorable together!
