Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama split again while her mom rehabs


As much as I feel badly about drawing this comparison, I’m actually quite worried that Demi Lovato really might be the new Lindsay Lohan. The similarities between the two are just too uncanny. They’ve both risen to quasi-stardom under the graces of Disney and rehabbed at a very young age. Once Lohan escaped from the House of Mouse, her acting career was essentially over because, years later, her biggest box-office hit is still Herbie: Fully Loaded, and it’s doubtful that anyone even watched that movie for anything other than the talking car. Similarly, Demi recently left her leading role on the “Sonny With a Chance” show, which has largely gone on by simply erasing her character and retitling itself as “So Random.” In addition, the two actresses have also experienced the mutual joy of being on-off-girlfriends to predatory skeeveball Wilmer Valderrama, and now they’re both revealed to have sketchy mothers too.

While Demi’s recently taken public steps to discuss the problems that put her on the path to rehab, it seems that her own mother has just completed her own round of rehab for undisclosed issues. Drugs? Who knows. Also, Wilmer and Demi are “off” again:

Actress and singer Lovato last November admitted herself to an Illinois clinic for treatment for “emotional and physical” issues, and during that time her mom, Dianna Hart de la Garza, was a constant support.

But sources tell us de la Garza, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, was recently forced to get treatment herself and was admitted to rehab at an undisclosed location.

A source told us, “It has been a tough year for Demi, and her mom has been a constant source of support. But fame has also taken its toll on her family. Now [that] Demi is strong again, her mom could take some time to deal with her own issues.”

It’s believed that de la Garza has completed treatment and is back with her family.

Last month Lovato, who had the words “Stay Strong” tattoed on her wrists after her treatment — which reportedly was for eating disorders and cutting — revealed that her mother surprised her by getting a matching tattoo. “My mom surprised me with it when I was in treatment,” Demi tweeted. “And she wanted to show me how proud she was of me for getting help and changing my life . . . I love her so much.”

“Sonny With a Chance” star Lovato, 18, whose new album is out in the fall, dated 31-year-old “That ’70s Show” star Valderrama — who once dated Lindsay Lohan — before and after completing her treatment in late January. They were spotted in February on a movie date and shopping for food, according to reports.

But sources tell us they have now decided to split, adding, “The age difference meant they were in completely different places in their lives.”

Notice how the article never mentions Demi’s father, which lends some credence to the further notion that Demi might indeed have some underlying daddy issues at work, hence her decision to date creeper Wilmer. This is a guy who’s known to prefer very young, pliable girls and, if nothing else, contribute to their already fragile states of mind. Also, I don’t doubt that this breakup is only temporary because Demi’s taken his unshaven skeeviness back once before, but I’ve never understood his appeal at all. Other than his tenure as the pervy kid from “That ’70s Show,” Valderrama’s claim to fame is voicing twenty episodes of “Handy Manny.” On the bright side, that gives him lots of time to scope out his next hot young piece. Ugh. Demi needs to run from him and never look back again.

    If she split from him things are looking up for her already.

  2. Quest says:

    He is like the “Dong of Doom” so this a positive turn of events for her

  3. gee says:

    Love the bottom pic of Demi. Hilarious!

  4. lucy2 says:

    That guy is so nasty. What one earth is she doing with him, and isn’t he also way too old for her? He’s a creep.

  5. Blue says:

    Ewwww he’s so… Eww
    I hope she doesn’t go down Lindsay’s path.

  6. MikeyAngel says:

    That’s not true, he had that fantastic show yo mama on MTV!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sarcastic in case anyone was wondering)

  7. TQB says:

    OK, I never say stuff like this, but I seriously do pray that this poor girl stays the hell away from that lecherous cretin.

  8. Alice says:

    “again”? I wasn’t aware of their first hook up.

  9. wonderwoman21 says:

    He’s so gross, ugh

  10. RocketMerry says:

    He reminds me of a guy I used to date. Eww.

  11. NayNay says:

    Seems Wilmer has a thing for the PYT’s (pretty YOUNG things.) He comes off like such a sleazebag. Seems kinda like a predator.

  12. Rhiley says:

    Wilmer= another one of Ashton Kutcher’s disgusting besties. I am sure Demi (Moore) has had Ashton breakup with Wilmer by now, but if left to his own devices, this is the type of scumbag he would spend his freetime with.

  13. Annie_Grey says:

    Wilmer needs to be charged with statutory rape for I don’t know how many girls. We know of at least two, though.

  14. OMG says:

    Why would she go out with Wilmer?

    He’s known to be a total crackhead that preys on young young girls . . .

    See where it got Lindsay?

  15. Sumodo1 says:

    Stay classy Dianna and Demi. (*snark*)

  16. tripmom says:

    I think a key difference here is that it sounds like Demi’s mom suported her when she got her treatment, and put Demi first. Then once Demi was well she attended to her own heeds. But the key is that she put her kid first, whereas I don’t think anyone could point to a single instance in which Dina Lohan actually put Lindsay’s needs before her own. I don’t see Demi’s mom out there giving intertview after interview about how Demi is misunderstood, making every excuse on the planet for her, and generally enabling her.

  17. jaye E says:

    He also dated Mandy Moore years ago. He even gave intimate details of their relationship on Howard Stern’s show. Yeah…he’s a real prize.

  18. RobN says:

    If my kid dated Wilmer, I’d need rehab too.

  19. Ruby says:

    Ewwwwwww….. I really can’t think of anything else to write. But seriously ewwwww

  20. newtsgal says:

    And a bath with some strong soap and wire brushes

  21. Lantana says:

    This story is just sad. I have 2 daughters. I don’t even want to think of crap like this. Like it’s not hard enough to navigate….arghhh…never mind…never mind.

  22. Sumodo1 says:

    Fez? An asshole. Always.

  23. jemshoes says:

    Oh no! No comparisons with Lindsay, please. I really wish the best for Demi, and her breaking up with ‘Fez” is a step in the right direction.

  24. Saucin' says:

    Slightly off-topic, but in the eating disordered community (take it from someone who knows) “Stay Strong” is often used to encourage you…to stick to your resolve in not eating.

    I wonder if she’s aware of that? It’s a positive message at first glance, anyway. I wish her the best.

  25. Jazz says:

    Wilmer Valderrama – is he still around?? :-/

  26. Hawk says:

    Fez is a pedophile. Lock up your teens.

  27. Anne says:

    Does this guy hang around Disney studios waiting for the next Hot Young Thing.

    I can’t believe him; he was my fav character on That 70s Show and now I find out he is a pederast. Gross x1000.

  28. I’m impressed, I need to state. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and enjoyable, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the mind. Your thought is great; the problem is one thing that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled across this during my seek for one thing relating to this.
