After months of rumours and speculation it looks like Niall Horan's romance with X Factor USA judge Demi Lovato is officially back on after she has reportedly been telling people they're “definitely dating”.
The couple, who reportedly enjoyed a romantic dinner date following the MTV VMAs last September, were first linked earlier this year after both admitted crushes on one another and while they've claimed to be single it seems they may have been hiding a secret relationship.
An insider told The Mirror: “Demi’s told the guys backstage she and Niall are loosely dating – it’s casual but they are definitely dating, albeit long-distance.”
The star herself admitted that she “has a crush” on the One Direction star, claiming he has the “two main qualities” she looks for in a man. “He has a lot of great qualities,” Demi 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.”
It seems work is the only thing keeping this love match apart, as both are busy with their careers and Demi doesn't want to do long distance.
She continued: “It has been a crazy year for One Direction and I have been concentrating on The X Factor and also my well-being.”
“I don’t want a relationship over Skype; we are both in a place where we feel zero pressure to rush.
"We share the philosophy that the right one is worth waiting for,” the 19 year-old added.
Recently Niall admitted he isn't into dating unless the “right person” came along.
