Demi Lovato Confirms She's Seeing Joe Jonas, Calling Him 'Perfect'


March 15, 2010 02:39:24 GMT


Demi Lovato has confirmed longstanding rumors she's dating Joe Jonas, calling the Jonas Brothers' star "perfect" and "incredible". The Disney sensations grew close after appearing together in movie-musical "Camp Rock" in 2008. They sparked rumors of a romance in October 2009 when they were spotted on a double date at a Toronto, Canada restaurant with Joe's older brother Kevin Jonas and his now-wife Danielle Deleasa.

Lovato dismissed reports of a relationship back in November 2009, insisting they "don't have feelings for each other in that way". But she has now come clean about her romance with Jonas - admitting they are a couple and gushing about their relationship in a new U.S. interview.
