Although rumors have been swirling for weeks that Demi Lovato and One Direction singer Niall Horan are an item, Demi put the rumors to rest in a recent Much interview.

"We've become really close friends, and I'm really thankful that I have someone who supports me in all aspects. If I need someone to talk to, he's there. But, no, we're not dating, I'm single," Demi explained.
