Rumors swirled in Bachelor Nation when Mike Johnson and Tayshia Adams were spotted getting up close and personal at the iHeartRadio music festival. A source recently said that there was nothing there, but Mike has decided to speak out for himself.
While Johnson is linked to Demi Lovato and Adams is in a relationship with John Paul Jones, fans wondered what their romantic interests would think of the photos that hit the press.
US Weekly caught up with the Bachelorette fan-favorite where he made thins very clear.
‘Dean [Unglert] was right there, Caelynn [Miller-Keyes] was right there, Derek [Peth] was right there. Tayshia and I FaceTimed JPJ when we were in the car going to some event. She is happy and is beautiful in her relationship with JPJ. Those guys would never let me try to mack on all of our friends’ girlfriend. And vice versa. Thank you for asking that question. That’s just BS, like no. She’s an attractive woman, but not for me. She’s in a relationship and I may or may not be talking to someone as well.’
He also expresses his distaste for the way the media blows things out of proportion.
‘We live in a day and age where if I give a woman a hug, and she’s an attractive woman, they may say, ‘Oh, they’re together.’ It’s ridiculous at this point in time.’
It does sound like his tryst with Demi Lovato is going great.
He simply said that he was ‘so happy right now.’ However, he revealed that he will probably not be returning to Bachelor in Paradise and the reason sounds like it could be because of his blossoming romance with the singer.
‘I would probably not go to Paradise again simply because hopefully, I’ll be in love next year. Hopefully, sooner than that.’
Do you think Mike and Demi will develop a real relationship?
