Months after singer Demi Lovato, 27, showed some interest in “The Bachelorette” contestant Mike Johnson, 31, on social media, they finally connected in real life!
A source told People magazine that the two are “having fun and getting to know each other.”
“They’ve been talking privately for a bit and hanging out,” the insider added.
Earlier this month, Mike and Demi flirted up a storm on Instagram. Mike commented on her unedited bikini pic, writing, “Look at me like that again. Love yaself.”

This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. 🙏🏼🙌🏼🤷🏻♀️ also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. 💗 #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT 🔥🔥🔥
Demi responded with kissy and tongue emojis.
Mike recently mentioned doing a double date with Tyler Cameron, who has been linked to Gigi Hadid. He wrote on Tyler’s Instagram, “So if we do this dbl date, your shirt stays on. No negotiation.”
Along with other Instagram users tagging Demi Lovato in their responses to Mike’s comment, one said, “I think he’s talking about a double date with him and Demi Lovato.
“Extra’s” Billy Bush recently sat down with Mike and asked about Demi. Watch!
Back in August, Johnson sat down with “Extra,” revealing that he and Demi “have not been able to speak.” Looks like things have changed!
During Hannah Brown’s season of “The Bachelorette,” Demi said on her Instagram Story, “Mike I accept your rose.”
When Mike tweeted about a “future wife,” Demi responded, “I’M RIGHT HERE MIKE I’M RIGHT HERE BOO MY MOM ALREADY LOVES YOU TOO.”
Aside from being in the running as the next Bachelor, Mike recently appeared on “Bachelor in Paradise,” going on a date with Caelynn Miller-Keyes.
