Demi Lovato Disses Rumors She's Dating Singer Niall Horan 1Demi Lovato’s rumored romance with One Direction’s Niall Horan apparently is another tabloid delusion. The former Disney star set the record straight today (June 22) when she said she’d never even heard of the UK boy band. Say What?

Her comments shot down another one of those apparently fake HollywoodLife stories. The gossip site reported Lovato and Horan had “admitted” their love for one another.

The story ran under the headine: “Demi Lovato & Niall Horan Confess Their Love For One Another.”

Lovato, was being interviewed on radio station B104 in Allentown, Pa., and DJ Hurly, manning the mic, understandably got right to the point.

“You know we mentioned your name is popping up in relationship news. Can we just publicly say this? You can publicy confirm that you know of someone named Niall who plays in a band. Is that correct?” he asked.

“I don’t even know who One Direction is,” said Lovato.

That can’t possibly be true can it? Lovato was just playing coy right? After all, she “expressed” her love for teen boy bander.

“I’m kidding,” she added. Niall is a friend of mine. I do know who he is.”

But she denied any romantic connection. “We’re just friends and he’s awesome. He’s cool,” she added.

Niall has admitted to UK tabloids that he personally contacted Demi because he thought she was cool, too. But admits: “I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Besides, Niall’s mom told Irish Central he doesn’t have time for a relationship right now.
