Remember when a possible romance between Demi Lovato and One Direction blonde bombshell Niall Horan was all anybody could talk about?
While some proclaimed their love of ‘Nemi’ from the metaphorical rooftops of twitter, others moaned in despair when it was revealed that the pair had been skyping, before dining at The Pink Taco.
Lately though, things have been rather quiet on the Nemi front, and it seems that those still hoping for a Lovato-Horan coupling could be sadly disappointed, after Demi revealed that the hype surrounding her friendship with the 1D chicken eater all became a bit too much.
Asked by heat magazine if she’s still in touch with Nialler, Demi said: “Not really. Unfortunately, as sweet as he is, it’s hard to maintain a friendship with somebody that you really can’t hang out with without people automatically assuming that you’re dating.”
Speaking about the inevitable abuse from the more extreme Directioners out there, Dems also revealed that she’s no stranger to the odd jealous fan – after experiencing a similar situation when she dated Joe Jonas for five months back in 2010.
“People tweeted and either said really nice things or rude things,” she said of the whole Nemi era. “More nice than bad, i guess – but I dealt with that already with the Jonas Brothers, with being so close to them and then dating Joe.
“I’d already been through that, so it wasn’t a big deal.”
