Demi Lovato reportedly went on a date with NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. earlier this week, leaving fans wondering whether the twosome are officially an item.
Lovato, who has yet to address her blossoming romance with Beckham, was said to have arrived at Hunt and Fish Club restaurant in New York just ten minutes after Odell made his entrance. It was evidently clear that the couple tried to be as secretive as possible — an attempt that has evidently failed.
Page Six goes on to claim that the twosome dined inside the restaurant for hours, before eventually making their exit in the early hours of a Wednesday morning. “Odell came in around 11 p.m. alone, then Demi discreetly arrived about 10 minutes later,” the insider explains to the outlet.

“They sat in a corner booth, and it definitely looked like a date. They looked very friendly and stayed until around 1:30 a.m.” The fact that Demi Lovato and Odell were dining for hours made it seem that much more romantic, some of the singer’s fans said on Twitter following the get-together.
Should it be true that Demi is hooking up with Beckham Jr., this will reportedly be her first official boyfriend since her split from Wilmer Valderrama, who she had spent five years of her life with during their on-again, off-again romance.
Lovato stressed that while she’s no longer with Wilmer, she wishes him nothing but the best and hopes that the two can continue to remain friends. Just days after the split, however, Demi said she’s finally single, giving the impression that she had been wanting to end the relationship with Valderrama for some time.
With that in mind, it would seem odd that Demi has now decided to start dating again — especially since it hasn’t even been a month since she officially called it quits with Wilmer. But Page Six is sticking to their point, alluding to the idea that Demi has gotten over her previous relationship and is looking for something new.

Odell Beckham Jr., on the other hand, recently squashed rumors regarding his supposed short-lived fling with reality star Khloe Kardashian, stressing that the duo was never a couple.
Photos of Odell and Khloe surfaced last month, leading media outlets to assume that the pair were quietly hooking up, but according to the NFL player, that couldn’t have been further from the truth, as explained in his interview with GQ, as cited by Hollywood Life.
“Whoever was there taking the pictures inside of a private party, inside of a privateer, private-er area of the house—we were in the kitchen of the house, where there was only like 15 people,” the 23-year-old says, adding that he briefly spoke to Khloe before they went their separate ways. Nothing else happened.

“It’s just kind of like…’dating’? I just met this person. This is maybe the second conversation we’ve had,” the athlete went on to add, making it known that he never went on to date Khloe, nor have the two spoken, despite reports having claimed otherwise.
Demi’s reason for being in New York in the first place was solely down to the upcoming show she and Nick were gearing themselves up for as part of their nationwide Honda Civic Tour.
