On Friday night the X Factor host told listeners on his 104.3 MY FM radio show that he encountered the young pop stars together on the set, in L.A., where Swift was rehearsing her “State of Grace” performance.
“Taylor Swift was the special guest performer, and [here's] a little inside scoop for you,” Lopez said on the air. “During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, 'Hey, Mario, how ya doing?' And I said, 'What are you doing here?' And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor."
He later added that he saw them “walking off hand in hand” and that the twosome are “officially hanging out, I can say that much."
The duo actually met earlier this year at the Kids’ Choice Awards where Swift and BFF Selena Gomez were seen dancing and singing to One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
Swift may just need some inspiration to pen her next new love song. No big deal, right?
