Little Mix's Jade Thirwall could very well be dating Jason Derulo. The hot new couple were confirmed by British tabloid the Sun.
In fact, it was Jade Thirwall's own bandmates who confirmed the news. Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson spoke to the Sun backstage at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball in London over the weekend, sparking the dating rumors.
She added a clever ad-lib for fans to figure out, saying, "She's got someone on the go. His name starts with a J... then a D."
Jade herself then added, "He's very hot. It's early days."
Jesy then added, "He's so lovely, really, really sweet. He gave Jade a little wink when we introduced him on stage. There's four of us but he looked to Jade and gave her a wink."
Even Jesy appears to be into the singer. Former JoBro Nick Jonas confessed that he has a crush on Jesy Nelson, but she says that she likes her guys a little more rugged looking.
"Jason's a bit more manly. Nick's a nice boy but Jason, I feel like he'd look after her. She's only little."
Jade didn't hide the fact that she has a crush on Jason Derulo.
She joked, "Yeah, he can pick me up!"
The hot new romance is not as random as you may think it is. According to a MTV News report, Jason Derulo collaborated with Little Mix on their track "Secret Love Song," which is on their new album, Get Weird. The UK girl group performed the song with the "Want To Want Me" singer for the first time at the Jingle Bell Ball over the weekend.
Both singers kept it professional when they performed on stage. After the song ended, Jason put his arm around Jade as the other girls smiled over at her.
But it looks like these girls were just playing a joke on everyone. The very next day, the Little Mix singer announced that she's not dating anyone these days. According to an OK! Magazine report, Thirwall took to Little Mix's official Twitter to deny the dating rumors.
She wrote, "Guyyyys I'm not dating anyone! Me and the girls were joking around...banter gone wrong! xxjadexx"
If the rumors even turn out to be true, then Perrie Edwards will be the only lady in the girl group who's single. The blonde singer split from former 1D singer Zayn Malik back in late August. The British bad boy is rumored to be dating Gigi Hadid. Leigh-Anne Pinnock is dating footballer Jordan Kiffin, while Jesy is engaged to Rixton frontman Jake Roche.
On Sunday, December 6, Edwards revealed what she's looking for in her next boyfriend. She was asked by the Daily Star if her boyfriend would have to be a certified masseuse. During her performance at the Jingle Ball, Edwards joked that her boyfriend would have to be good at giving massages.
"I didn't say that but I wouldn't say no. I need a boyfriend who gives me a massage. I love a massage, have you tried the Lava Shells? They are great."
While Perrie has clearly moved on from Zayn, she was seen moving back into the home she once shared with her fiancé. She has said in previous interviews that she's single and ready to mingle these days. Perrie revealed shocking things like her attraction to women and that she even kissed a Towie reality star. It looks like she doesn't mind being the single one out of the group.
