Demi Lovato is opening up about why her six-year relationship with ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama came to an end. Demi said in a new interview that their split was just all about getting a ‘fresh start’!
Demi Lovato, 24, spoke to Glamour about the issues she’s faced with addiction, body image and eating disorders in the past. She’s struggled, but as she’s grown as a person, she’s been able to tackle those problems head on! Her interviewer pointed out that she had ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, 36, by her side throughout that whole journey, but while Demi was grateful for his support, she was happy about her new life as a single woman.
“I think it’s healthy to be able to start over with someone else, Demi told Glamour in their November 2016 issue. “Being sick was always a part of my relationship with him; I always had something wrong with me. I needed to let go of that. It was hard to depart from somebody who saw everything, but it may be nice to start fresh with somebody. Because that person I was when I was a lot younger is not who I am today.”
That’s sweet! We’re so glad that Demi is feeling healthy and happy, and can’t wait to see what she does next! Apparently, best buddy and tour mate, Nick Jonas, 23, has her back when it comes to finding new dudes to date. She told Glamour that Nick’s like family, and apparently he’s got some good taste, too!
“We’re definitely each other’s wingman/woman,” Demi said. “There was one night in New York where he introduced me to somebody. And Nick and I looked at each other and high-fived each other. [Laughs.]”
