UPDATE: Demi directly addresses the Niall dating rumors in the new November 2012 issue of Teen Vogue (via Gossip Cop): “He’s a really awesome, sweet guy. But he’s not my boyfriend.” There you go!

Original June 20 story:

Is she giving his heart a break or just giving fans a heart attack with the rumor that he's off the market?

Last week, One Direction's Irish cutie Niall Horan talked to Ryan Seacrest about Skype-ing with singer and The X-Factor judge Demi Lovato. Ryan asked him point-blank, "Are you and Demi Lovato Skype-dating?" Niall laughed and coyly replied, "She’s a cool girl… I’ve gotten in contact with her, she’s really nice, but I don’t know what’s gonna happen."

According to HollywoodLife.com, what happened is Niall just spent time over the weekend with Demi's sisters. Dallas Lovato and Madison De La Garza reportedly met with Niall at the Santa Monica Pier and they all tweeted about it. Demi, 19, is off shooting The X-Factor but if Niall, 18, is spending time with her family, that's gotta be a good sign for Team Nemi, right?

Do you think there’s fire with all this rumor smoke or are the singers just friends?
