Last week was a tough one for Hollywood love. First, we got the news of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris mutually calling it quits. As if that wasn’t bad enough, news broke that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik were also no longer an item. Finally, in the most shocking revelation of them all, perhaps because it was the longest relationship out of the three, Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama decided to go their separate ways after six years of being together.The singer and actor shared a statement they individually posted on their own Instagram profiles saying they both decided they are ultimately better off as “best friends.” The post read:
“This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends. We will always be supportive of one another. Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years.”
The 23-year-old was obviously infatuated with her 36-year-old boyfriend, according to her social media channels. She was seen often posting photos of the two cuddling or traveling together while writing captions that displayed her love and affection for him.
No one saw these two splitting up for good any time soon even though sources close to the couple say the breakup was a longtime coming. Apparently, Valderrama had different views on the relationship as opposed to Lovato. When asked if they would walk down the aisle, the actor commented, “No, I don’t think we’re in that space.” When the same question was asked of the singer, she had a very different response. “I am very, very in love with him. I think we will probably wait a little bit longer,” she said. “But if he asked tomorrow I would say yes.” Unfortunately, it takes two to tango.
But there is a bright side to the sad news. The “Heart Attack” singer is single and she is looking better than ever these days. She has been open about her eating disorder and addiction but has gotten back up. The singer is now a mental health advocate and feeling more confident than before. Her confidence definitely shines through from performances to TV appearances to paparazzi shots and more. Lovato is undoubtedly a catch so take a look at these 12 hot photos of the newly single brunette.

Demi Lovato got to show off her confidence in a 2015 Cosmopolitan issue in this sequence mini. It only made sense because 2015 was her year. The singer didn’t just dish out on the music, though. She opened up a lot concerning her on and off relationship with Wilmer. “The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him,” the brunette said. She explained that, as soon as she turned 18, which was when they started dating, she went to rehab. But Wilmer didn’t feel like leaving even though there were people telling him “she’s on a spiral” and he was going to be “sucked down with it.”
However, things don’t always go smoothly and in late May of this year, the two decided to part ways. Apparently they had more of a brother-sister relationship which makes sense because they have been through a lot and genuinely care for one another. Only time will tell. One thing for sure though is that Wilmer is not the jealous type according to Demi. He’s good friends with Joe Jonas who’s her ex from 2010. So whoever gets to date the songstress next, there won’t be any ex-boyfriend drama. But also keep in mind, he’s like a big brother to Demi, so that’s still something to consider.
