An insider confirms with HollywoodLife.com Victoria Justice and her ‘Victorious’ co-star Ryan Rottman are casually dating. We’ve done some digging…here’s everything you need to know about Vic’s new guy!

Victoria Justice is one of Hollywood’s fastest rising starlets — and now she has a gorgeous man on her arm. An insider tells HollywoodLife.com the 18-year-old starlet has been getting romantically involved with her 26-year-old Victorious co-star, Ryan Rottman, and is happier than ever.

“Vic just turned 18; her career is taking off and now she’s dating pretty much the hottest guy ever. She’s over the moon right now,” a source says after we saw the new couple together at the Kids’ Choice Awards April 2 and at a Lakers’ game April 3. “Ryan and Victoria started hanging out a bunch after he filmed his episode of Victorious. They are just having fun with each other. We’ll see where it goes.”

For those of you who didn’t see Ryan on Victorious, he played a kid named Ryder who asked Tori to sing a duet with him at the Full Moon Jam, but turned out to only be using her for a good grade. Obviously, we’d hate to see art imitate life, so we got the 411 on Ryan…and he seems like a pretty cool guy. Here’s what you need to know:

  • He’s good friends with Kellan Lutz and Zac Efron.
  • He dated Brittany Snow for two years after they met on the set of their movie, Walks. Sources confirmed their breakup in November.
  • He plays Joey, one of the leads on the show Gigantic on TeenNick.
  • He’s a health nut and has said he stays in shape with four intense work outs a week and eats super healthy.
  • He went to college at Texas Tech University, where he performed in plays and decided he wanted to make a career out of acting.
  • He loves watching comedies and has said his favorite TV shows are Seinfeld or It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

What do YOU think of Victoria’s new man? Do you think they make a cute couple? How do you feel about their eight year age difference? Sound off below!

Lol I’m not sure how I got here (I don’t watch nick, my sister does) but these comments that “girls are more mature than boy” are so lame, I’m 20 and I’m far more mature than most girls several years older than me…and the fact the commenters are making such generalizations illustrate that they are not ‘mature’ either….but merely immature in a different way (naivety, arrogance, vanity, etc.)
One must be quite delusional to believe that a guy about to hit mid-life; looks at a 19 year old and thinks “I want to date her for her mind….”
Personally stepped back from girls a year older or young…. preffer to keep things simple

@Indhira. That’s pretty much what I said in an earlier post. Why would an 18 year old girl want anything to do with a guy around her age? Girls our age are much more mature than guys our age, and also more mature than guys in their 20s. To be honest, I think 26 is too young for her. No 18 year old girl in her right mind should date a guy under 30. It’s just not right. All they do is play video games, are slobs, worship their friends, cheat, drink too much. Ugh! Why can’t people see this? I’m 19, and would never date some childish guy in his 20s. I have nothing in common with them, and most girls my age don’t either.

seriously what is the big deal about people dating some1 their age?? does it has to be that way always? im not talking about pedos who date girls who are under age but an 18 year old year, who’s an adults already can do w.e she wants, and date whoever she wants. and it doesnt mean anything baD!! they look gud together and if they want to be together then why judge them? i really dont get it when people say , he’s too old, she could do better…. 18 year old kids(boys) are so immature, why would a 18 year old girl want to date 18/19 year old boys!(we mature faster)… they all want sex at some point whether is her age or not, but older man can understand better and be more mature about it than teenagers!

I think its great that she found a guy that she is happy with,its her decision.But i think that she should find someone that is her age and she can do better.He has dated his co-stars and broke up with them so he will sometime break up with victoria and she will be heart broken.Hes the type of guy that will date and go…Victoria should find someone that will treat her right.

It isnt the age difference, its the type of guy. Secondly, some of you guys posting sound like weirdo stalkers. You dont even know her or met her but you sound creepily that you own her. grow up, she is not your girlfriend, you are not going to get her or date her. get help plz before you end up being talked out of a hostage situation by the cops.

i think it’s weird that people are asking if he’s too old. 26 year old guys are way immature. i don’t think she should date anyone under 30. 18 year old girls are much more mature than guys in their 20s. they have nothing in common with the guys in their 20s. 30+ is more appropriate.

I love Victoria, and I hate the fact that she’s dating that perv. By now, I’m sure you have all heard that Ryan was arrested for DUI. All the more reason for her to dump him. Oh, and victoria future man, If you want Victoria, YOU’LL HAVE TO GO THROUGH ME!!!!

So it was slutty and immoral for a 17 year old disney girl to date a 20 year old guy, but it’s ok for a nickelodeon girl who just turned 18 last month to date a 26 year old?

I love Victoria, but honestly i think that she should be dating a guy more around her age because eight years is a pretty big difference. i think victoria and Avan would be a better match, and does Avan even know shes dating ryan rottman? ryan rottman is a douche :)
