Someone may have a rose for Demi Lovato! Former Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson and the 27-year-old pop star have reportedly been trying their hand at dating after a bit of social media flirting for all to see.
“They did go on a date and it’s been going well,” an insider revealed to E! News. “They seem to have a lot in common and are just enjoying getting to know each other.” A source also told People, “They’ve been talking privately for a bit and hanging out.”
Fans and followers definitely saw the pop star gushing over the hunk on the ‘gram back when he was competing on Hannah Brown‘s season of the show. In a tweet from early July, Mike mused about where his “future wife” was, and Demi had a response raring and ready to go.

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 🔥🔥🔥
“I’M RIGHT HERE MIKE I’M RIGHT HERE BOO MY MOM ALREADY LOVES YOU TOO,” she hilariously (and probably truthfully) responded to the post, while fans flocked to the original tweet to share support for a possible Mike and Demi coupling.
But the dynamic duo hasn’t stopped being flirty since Mike was eliminated from the competition series. In fact, on September 6, the 31-year-old commented on a super sexy photo of Demi showing off her ~assets~ on her feed.
“Look at me like that again,” he wrote, along with a smirk emoji. “Love yaself.” Demi sent him back a few kissy face and tongue out emojis, flirting back in her response.
Believe it or not, Mike’s been chatting about the potential relationship with fellow alum Tyler Cameron. He commented on one of the 26-year-old’s posts and hilariously remarked, “So if we do this [double] date, your shirt stays on. No negotiation.” Probably not a bad request, Mike!
Reps for Demi and Mike did not immediately respond to Life & Style‘s request for comment.
