Demi Lovato has split from Mike Johnson after a few months of dating.
‘Sorry Not Sorry’ hitmaker Demi Lovato and The Bachelor In Paradise’s Mike Johnson have called it quits after their romance began when they were flirting back in July this summer.
The pop star made her feelings clear earl on, when she was watching the addictive dating show.
Demi flooded her Instagram Stories with mentions of Mike when no one accepted his rose on the TV show, and it seems her advances worked as he later responded to her comments.
The couple had been “hanging out” and “getting to know each other”, but where did it all begin?
Here’s what we know about this romance…
Mike flirts with Keke Palmer on live TV
Mike confirmed his split from Demi after he appeared on ABC morning talk show: Strahan, Sara and Keke, where he touched on his romance, saying: "I made a mistake, I don't like dating in public," before going on to ask the Hustlers star on a date, "But, if I were to ask you, if we could go on a date?"
Keke was unsurprisingly shocked and wide-eyed during the live television interview, and ignored the comment, telling her co-star: "What's the next question?"
Mike & Demi romance is 'done'
Mike appeared on People Now where he was quizzed about his romance with the former Disney star.
He said: "My relationship status right now is sadly like my Facebook, it's private."
A source then revealed to People that their romance is 'done', according to a report.
Mike says Demi 'kisses really well'
During iHeartRadio’s Almost Famous podcast he said: “We’ve gone on more than one date. I like her tattoos. We both have a lot of tattoos and she kisses really well… I’m getting to know her for her.”
Mike also said it was Demi’s confidence that caught his attention.
He continued: “For one, I’m all about her too and she definitely was the aggressor. I find it incredibly sexy. I love that. Like, you want me, come at me. If I want you, I’m going to come at you and I’m coming at her as well.”
Mike added he “thinks the world” of the pop star, saying: “I am very private with my relationships straight up. But she’s in this light and that’s why I said she’s so humble and I think the world of her because she has been able to have to deal with this crap."
'Getting to know each other’ privately
Weeks after flirting with one another on social media, a source told People Demi and Mike are finally seeing each other.
The insider said they’ve been “having fun and getting to know each other… They’ve been talking for a bit and hanging out.”
Mike and Demi leave each other thirsty comments
When Demi posted an incredible, unfiltered bikini snap of herself she was flooded with praise from hundreds of fellow celebrities – and Mike was among them, leaving a very telling message.
He commented: “Look at me like that again, love yaself [sic],” alongside the smirk emoji and hands in the air.
Demi responded to his comment with the cheeky tongue-out emoji and kiss face – and if that's not a confirmation of romance then we don't know what is.
Mike and Demi begin flirting
The fire started between this gorgeous couple way back in July 2019, when Mike caught Demi’s eye during his time on The Bachelorette.
During his final episode on The Bachelorette, Demi spent the evening posting snippets of him to her Instagram Stories – including one caption which said: “Mike I accept your rose.”
When he was eliminated from the show he tweeted: “Jus saying, my future wife though girl you ready for smiles, adventure, comfort, growth, honesty, laughter, me falling using my inhaler and kissing your stretch marks and imperfections. Where u hiding.”
And Demi wasted no time in replying, commenting on a screenshot of his tweet on Instagram with: “I’M RIGHT HERE MIKE I’M RIGHT HERE BOO MY MOM ALREADY LOVES YOU TOO.”
Mike wouldn’t be the first The Bachelorette star to find happiness with an A-lister, after Gigi Hadid began dating Tyler Cameron earlier this year.
Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland is also engaged to Wells Adams, who appeared on The Bachelorette in 2016.
