That, or he’s being a creepy stalker! Ex Disney star, rehab patient, and now X Factor judge Demi Lovato has had ups and downs in relationships, but much like Blair Waldorf, she has that one guy who just won’t disappear into the sunset. Demi dated Wilmer Valderrama in 2010, and then reunited for a bit last year. It seems like, whether they’re split or not, the two are always together! They’ve been on a handful of dates this year, and now he’s shown up on the set of The X Factor! Let’s break down the possibilities: Either they’re back on, or he is being a full on obsessive ex, following her around, desperate for love and attention!
Of course, it’s nicer to say that they’ve rekindled the spark, but, technically speaking, she’s old enough to be his daughter. (He’s 32; she’s 20. I didn’t say it was likely, just atomically possible.) While on set, Wilmer agreed to take pics with fans, and the news spread like wildfire. As they’ve been seen together before this, the only logical conclusion is a budding romance.
A source explained their behavior while at a party to celebrate the X Factor premier. “Wilmer stayed by Demi’s side all night. He was very protective of her and had his legs straddled around her chair while they watched the show.” Weird, right? It’s an elite Hollywood party—what does she need protecting from? Hound dog Simon Cowell? The couple was also spotted dining cheap at The Cheesecake factory.
A source promised back in September, “It’s only a matter of time. They have always liked each other, still have tons of respect for each other, and are still in love.” I’ll leave you guys to figuring it out: are they back on, friends with benefits, trying to keep it platonic—what? She is too young to be tying herself down, but a few serious relationships that end in heartbreak are healthy! Do you like Wilmer? Think—if they got married, what sort of weird (ahem, unique) name would their kid have?
