When there were rumors flying around about Demi Lovato dating One Direction cutie Niall Horan, nothing good came out of the situation for either of the two.
From the beginning, Demi claimed they were just friends, but with everyone hounding her every time they hung out, she felt like she couldn't even be friends with him at all.
In an interview with Heat magazine, Demi said, "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."
After all the drama, Demi and Niall kept their friendship quiet -- if they even had one at all, that is. The negative attention was just too much for Demi, especially since she had been through a similar situation when she dated Joe Jonas in 2010.
"People tweeted and either said really nice things or rude things," she said. "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."
