Sources said the “Sober” hitmaker thinks he’s [Johnson] “funny [and] smart.”

“He makes her laugh and is respectful of her boundaries,” an insider explained. “All of these qualities are very important and intriguing to Demi.”

This after the two made headlines last month after they went out on a date in Los Angeles. Sources told Entertainment Tonight that “everything went well” on the date.

As previously reported, the pop singer had a serious wake-up call about life last summer after she nearly died following a drug overdose.
