Michael Clifford and Crystal Leigh have been rumored to be dating for a long time, but after this New Year's Eve, the 5SOS member has announced to the world that they are indeed a couple! The singer posted a video of their midnight kiss confirming that the pair spent the evening together, partying and enjoying fireworks on what looks like a boat.
He shared the video a few days after the new year writing: "I know I'm late, but happy new year everyone. especially to my love @crystalleigh for making 2016 infinitely better than I thought it would be. here's to much greener pastures in 2017, and much less awkward hand motions. (you know I'm bad at this) ❤️✌🏼."
Infinitely better than I thought it would be?! How sweet is that? Check out the video below:
He also wrote on Twitter on the last day of the year that he had a sweet pre-new year's eve night.

Other fans were not happy with the relationship and some even said that he had lost thousands of followers since posting the photo.

In a past interview Pete Wentz seemingly confirmed that he had a girlfriend when talking about them possibly collaborating with his band Fall Out Boy, saying: "I’m sure we’d be open to it if they wanted. I see Michael [Clifford] a lot, his girlfriend is good friends with my girl. At the same time they’re at such a different moment in their career that it might even be more worthwhile for us to just hang out. Having been a person who’s been through the ups and downs of it it’d be cool to just bro down."
There was a rumor the pair was also on vacation in Thailand in October of last year with his parents, so it looks like things are pretty serious between them.
Apparently, Michael is with his parents and Crystal in Thailand. Nothing is confirmed though. || @5SOSFamUpdater ~ D— 5SOS Daily Help! (@5sosDailyhelp) October 14, 2016
