American Idol Contestant Paul McDonald Dating Actress Nikki Reed
E! Online claims that Reed is now calling McDonald her "boyfriend," and that they've been keeping tabs on each other via Skype, due to their busy schedules.
The couple first met at the 'Red Riding Hood' premiere in March, during which Reed said a quick hello on the red carpet. At the time, the report says that McDonald had no idea who she was.
A rep for Reed has yet to comment on the report.
Meanwhile, sources for E! also shot down a report that 'Twilight' hunk Taylor Lautner has been Skyping with 16-year-old contestant Lauren Alaina.
The 26-year-old McDonald, who hails from Huntsville, AL, is still competing for the 'American Idol' season 10 title. This week, the alt-rocker sang Johnny Cash's famous song 'Folsom Prison Blues,' which you can check out in the video below.
