Wilmer Valderrama & Demi Lovato are “still in love” but “not officially dating”

I had forgotten that Agent Bedhead talked about this reunion back in September, but look! It’s for real now. It was for real back in September too. Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato are back together. They started dating originally when she was, like, 17 years old and he was 29. Some say their relationship was incredibly sketchy, with lots of sexy and drugs and emotional abuse. Then came rehab (for an eating disorder, I guess) and several back-and-forth breakups and reunions. Now he’s 32 years old and she’s 20 and they’re looking pretty official. X-Factor contestant Paige Thomas tweeted the header photo a few days ago, backstage at the X-Factor set:

Wilmer Valderrama previously visited his former flame Demi Lovato on the set of The X Factor on Nov. 8, igniting rumors that he and Demi have rekindled their relationship. This is not the first time that Demi and Wilmer have been spotted together in recent weeks — they were reportedly seen together during a private event at Bagatelle LA on Sept. 12 in West Hollywood, among other occasions. And now, a hot new picture of the couple suggests that the reunion may be official.

Wilmer, 32, was spotted on The X Factor set again, as a new photo sees him posing with 20-year-old Demi and one of her contestants, Paige Thomas, who recently survived the dreaded sing off on Nov. 15. Paige tweeted the photo on Nov. 18 and said, “So grateful for life and such a beautiful day yesterday with an amazing mentor@ddlovato and @WValderrama!”

Wilmer clearly has his arm around Demi in the picture, and this is not the first time he has been seen visiting her on the set. So what gives?

A source previously told HollywoodLife.com, “They are not officially dating but it’s only a matter of time. They really have always liked each other, still have tons of respect for each other, and are still in love.”

Ugh. In between breakups, Wilmer also got with Minka Kelly, who must have been, like, temporarily blind or something. Or maybe Minka just has a really horrible Douche Radar (also see: Amanda Seyfried). Now, I’m not putting this catastrophe only on Wilmer’s shoulders at this point. While I put all of the blame on him a few years ago, when it was clear that he really has a thing for emotionally vulnerable jailbait (ugh!), at this point I have to give Demi some of the blame too. I really do think she’s still a pretty messed up girl, and at this point, can’t we all agree that “dating Wilmer” = “self-destructive tendencies”?

    This dude is always dating really young girls, its very creepy.BTW who’s the girl with the short hair in the photo? She is hot.

  2. Ms Kay says:

    Someone explains to me the deal with this guy??? Not only I have never been able to imagine him outside the Fez character, but he seems to get all the girls whether they’re D-listed or else? What’s his secret?? *scratches head*

  3. Annie says:

    I will never understand the allure of Fez. You can tell from his photos and videos that he thinks he’s hot shit though.

  4. aims says:

    I think the girls a mess!! I think she’s unstable, flat out. I also feel that this dude has a radar, and it zeros in one unstable girls. He’s a total slimball

    • erika says:

      enough said, or well said….he’s gross. could ya date a gal that has a 2 infront of her age and not a one?

      and by that i dont mean a toddler you douche!

  5. su says:

    he must know how to put it DOWN between the sheets cuz these girls get a little taste and keep going back for more. There can’t possibly by any other explanation!

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      My theory is that he treats girls like crap..girls who are typically not emotionally strong; who endlessly seek the approval or validation of a clear d-bag. Also, Demi is a self-destructive person and still very vulnerable…needless to say, still no justification for staying with this creep. He is worse than John Mayer..Im thinking he is like in the Chris Brown territory. Come on Demi! Rooting for you!!

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        He is exactly like Chris Brown, just that he is emotionally abusive instead of physically. Considering she is a self destructive person I think she keeps getting back to him because she thinks she doesn´t deserve anyone better, because of self hatred she seeks out someone who will hurt her so she doesn´t need to do it to her herself anymore.

  6. hannah says:

    She went into rehab for bipolar disorder, didn’t she?

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      I have unipolar, but there’s not really rehab for bipolar/unipolar (unipolar=depressive episodes w/t manic ones)….it’s a lifetime condition…
      Anyway, the girl on the left is beautiful.
      The floral dress is not; it is way too dowdy and doesn’t make her look good – Wilmer is just gross.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        My dad is bipolar and whenever he stopped taking his meds, he had to be taken to the closed mental ward in a hospital, to get back on his meds and stay there until they were full effective.

  7. fatgirl says:

    Minka and Wilmer should have stayed together, they made a beautiful couple. They looked so happy and in love.

  8. Madriani's Girl says:

    OMG, her eyebrows!!!! Is she kidding??? And he is so dirty-looking. I’d rather bonk a goat. Well, I guess that’s the same thing.

  9. hmmmm says:

    How many years did he go with LOHAN??

  10. lori says:

    The Valderamma ding dong is huge. I say good day to you. I SAY GOOD DAY~!

  11. Relli says:

    “They are not officially dating but it’s only a matter of time. They really have always liked each other, still have tons of respect for each other, and are still in love.”

    Translation: She really wants it to be official but he has so much going on it “just wouldn’t be fair to her, RIGHT NOW.” He’s got her hooked and just dragging her along. He likes the benefits but isn’t interested in long term and therefore not putting a ring on it.

    Plus wasn’t he recently linked to Eva Longoria? Or am I on gossip overload and imagined that?

  12. G says:

    Yes Fez is popular but not a household name like HANDY MANNY! He picks them off young at the Disney studios…

  13. Incredulous says:

    I am surprised the CDC don’t follow Wilmer around.

  14. serena says:

    What’s up with her eyebrows?

  15. I.want.shoes says:

    3rd picture is an assault on my eyes. What a fug, unflattering dress.

    WV is an assault. To everything and everyone.

  16. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Wilmer is her choice. Those eyebrows, though? DESTROYING HER.

  17. Lisa says:

    Ew, Fez. I liked him until I realized how unlike that character he was. Super crushed to find out Danny Masterson is a Scientologist, too. So conformist of you, Hyde.

  18. asdfg says:

    Ya know, i’m glad she’s gained weight and all but gaining too much weight is not healthy or flattering. The majority of her weight gain is going straight to her hips and arms. That dress does nothing for her “curvy” figure!


  19. Sean says:

    I guess I can add Demi to my Dead Pool for next year. I had taken her off for this year.

  20. d says:

    He reminds me of an ex. So, as to why she hasn’t cut him off, from the widsom of age and experience now, I’d guess she’s with him because when you’re a certain age, and have certain levels of true self-esteem and true self-respect (i.e., not much), guys like this…there’s something about guys like him that can totally make you lose your mind. I think she will eventually get over him, but not easily. I’m projecting my own experience obviously, but I dunno, just remembering myself at that age…you do dumb things and you learn lessons the hard way.

  21. tina d says:

    Someone should put a warning sign for every young women about this predator.

  22. Kosmos says:

    Again, said by many, I do not understand the appeal of this man, especially today after his reputation has been pretty much ruined when it comes to women…is it REALLY just a dong thing? I like Demi on the X-Factor, and yes, she probably is vulnerable and has a weakness for him, but if they had their years of on/off, it surely won’t work now. Some people just go back because they’re in between lovers, just saying.
