There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Even though she recently GUSHED about what a sweet, funny dude he is!
But WHAT were Demi and Niall doing after the BRIT Awards Wednesday evening?! Chillin' at the SAME party held at London's Arts Club!!!
The pair were both spotted leaving the event — albeit separately (above)!
We wonder if Niall serenaded Demi with What Makes You Beautiful while she dance-hobbled on her injured ankle?! Or perhaps they were getting Lovestoned with Justin Timberlake, who was also in attendance!
Either way, we're sure the Irish cutie and the X Factor sweetheart enjoyed each other's company during the event…
Even if it WAS only as friends!
Ch-ch-check out TONS more snaps of Demi and Niall leaving after party (below)!
P.S. - Can we just say how much we ADORE Demi's walking stick?! Canes, the trend of 2013. LOL.
