Is 'Twilight' Star Nikki Reed Dating 'Idol' Hopeful Paul McDonald?

According to E! Online, Reed has been calling McDonald her "boyfriend" and the two have been keeping in close contact via Skype.
This is due to the fact that the young actress is busy filming 'Breaking Dawn' and McDonald is still one of the finalists competing on 'Idol.'
The couple first met when the Top 13 'Idol' finalists were taken to see 'Red Riding Hood' in early March. Reed met McDonald and complimented his singing saying, "You're amazing. I'm blushing, I should go."
McDonald did not recognize the young actress and just said, "Wow, thank you," before giving her an awkward hug goodbye.
Once Reed was out of earshot, McDonald asked the 'Idol' camera crew, "Was she a famous actress or something? I'd hang out with her!"
Looks like the couple have been 'hanging' out ever since.
This is the second romance that has blossomed in the 'Idol' house. Earlier this month it was reported that contestants Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart were quite the cozy couple off-stage.
