While Bachelor in Paradise wrapped up shooting weeks ago, the sparks are really flying for one former cast-member. Mike Johnson and Demi Lovato are officially dating, and talking about it.
“We’ve gone on more than one date,” Mike shared on air with Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti Haibon on iHeartRadio’s Almost Famous podcast. “I like her tattoos. We both have a lot of tattoos and she kisses really well… I’m getting to know her for her.”
“For one, I’m all about her too and she definitely was the aggressor. I find it incredibly sexy. I love that,” he shared with co-hosts Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti Haibon. “Like you want me, come at me. If I want you, I’m going to come at you and I’m coming at her as well.”
Demi and Mike’s romance started with a few flirty social media exchanges, and it doesn’t seem to be cooling off IRL. “I’m a gentleman,” Mike added. “I’m not going to kiss and tell. I might not be a gentleman to her always.”
Earlier in September, Demi and Mike reportedly went on their first date, according to an “insider” who spoke to E! News. “They did go on a date and it’s been going well,” the source said. “They seem to have a lot in common and are just enjoying getting to know each other.”
Fans also have Dancing With the Stars contestant Hannah Brown to thank for this budding ‘ship. The former Bachelorette not only released Mike during her season, but she hinted at setting him up with Demi.
Mike is just one of many Bachelor stars to hit it off with a celeb. Gigi Hadid is reportedly dating Hannah’s ex Tyler Cameron (which, okay), and Modern Family star Sarah Hyland is engaged to Wells Adams, whom she also met on social media.
The Mike and Demi love connection is looking more real by the hour, folks. Sorry, Not Sorry.
