“Skyscraper” singer Demi Lovato, currently an “X Factor” judge went on record as saying she is not officially dating One Direction singer Niall Horan. Demi had been chatting with Niall via Skype and many assumed they were an official couple.
Realizing her mental health and sense of well-being are important for her, she explains she realizes she would like to be alone for a while. Demi recently came out as having lived with eating disorders, bipolar disorder, and self-harm behaviors for years.
In an interview with Teen Vogue Demi explained the situation between her and Niall and how she feels about working on the “X Factor” judges’ panel:
“He’s a really awesome, sweet guy,”
“But he’s not my boyfriend…I’m in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself.”
“Obviously, I’m still going to like people—or love them—but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be OK with being alone, first,” she adds. “I’m really happy right now. I never thought it was possible to be happy because of how depressed I was my entire life. But I feel so incredible. It’s like living in a dream.”
It seems Demi Lovato has gained control over her mental health. While struggles with eating disorders, bipolar disorders, and self-harm behaviors can be lifelong challenges, they are controllable.
