Demi Lovato drops jaws as she shows off her killer curves in string bikini... as it's revealed she is 'getting to know' Bachelorette alum Mike Johnson

Demi Lovato has been enjoying a newfound sense of freedom and self-expression, and Bachelorette alum Mike Johnson is noticing.

The Sorry Not Sorry singer, who turned 27 last month, posted a now famous un-doctored and filter-free bikini picture to her Instagram last week, along with a message about being unapologetic about her real body, and again took to the social media platform on Saturday for more of the same.

In her latest share, Lovato contributed to the now ubiquitous leopard print trend by posing in a skimpy string bikini in the pattern, accented with neon lime green straps that matched the tips of her bob.

Demi Lovato is a self-confessed leopard print mega fan, so we weren't surprised to see the star take to Instagram to showcase her latest leopard print find.

In a classic brown colourway, with bold neon straps and a subtle ruffle hem, Demi's pick is definitely one we want to try out for ourselves.

She captioned the duo of photos, 'No photoshop pls & thank u. Also big thanks to @izabelag4 & @maremareswimw for my new fav bikini...

'Y'all know my thing for leopard print bikinis and now of course lime green' she concluded.

Her bikini snap from last week, which also featured animal print swimwear, garnered the attention of her crush Mike Johnson of Bachelorette fame, who Demi has taken quite a shine to through social media since he appeared on Hannah Brown's season of the popular dating show.

And now, a source has told People Magazine that Demi and Mike are 'having fun and getting to know each other.'

Ship for them: The pair have shared several flirty exchanges through comment threads on Instagram

'They've been talking privately for a bit and hanging out,' the source added. 

Fans have been rabid for details about the pair's potential coupling, and they were put into a frenzy recently when Johnson commented on a post from fellow Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron, saying, 'So if we do this dbl date, your shirt stays on.'

Demi and Mike shippers speculated that since Cameron is dating Gigi Hadid, Johnson would conceivably take Lovato out on a 'dbl date' with the couple.

Last month, Johnson went so far as to confirm to PeopleTV's Reality Check that he was interested in the Heart Attack hitmaker.

'She would definitely be cool to reach out to, but neither one of us have reached out to each other,' Mike said, before the more recent developments. 

'I think she's sexy, she's got a nice little booty on her and she has good voice.'

She's a fan of his too: Demi has taken quite a shine to Mike through social media ever since he appeared on Hannah Brown's season of The Bacherlorette
