Demi Lovato gets a ring from Wilmer Valderrama: right ring, wrong finger?

2016 MusiCares Person of the Year  - Arrivals

Last week, I posted about Demi Lovato’s recent appearance on Ellen, in which she implied she’d like to see a ring from her beau, Wilmer Valderrama. It looks like the wish fairy showed up at Demi’s doorstep with her requested bling.

Demi, who recently joined Snapchat under the user name @theddlovato (and appears to be still trying to get the hang of it, if this recent Tweet is any indication) re-posted a Snapchatted picture of her new ring on her Instagram account. The photo, of the couple holding hands, was captioned “You are my world, my life, my best friend, my love and my purpose. I love you so much Wilmer…” quickly followed by the disclaimer, “y’all are crazy btw… That is my RIGHT hand and my MIDDLE finger πŸ˜‚ I am NOT engaged.” Side note, do Wilmer’s fingernails look a bit janky? My ex-hubby worked a blue collar job and has better looking fingernails. Sorry for that mini-vent, I have a “thing” about guys’ hands.

The couple appeared to have spent a romantic Valentine’s Day, with Demi posting another photo with the caption, “I love this man with ALL of my heart. #HappyValentinesDay β€οΈπŸ’‹β€οΈ (btw how f—ing cute is he in his polka dot button up?!!??!)” Ummm…kind of cute? I like Demi’s shoes though. Wilmer posted the same picture to his Instagram with the caption, “We date night all the time.. But, tonight is about celebrating the lady I love.. Proud of us, and blessed with our friendship. I love you my Demi. #HappyValentinesDay.” Cute or barf-inducing?


Let’s talk about the ring. I kind of dig it. It’s modern and a little bit edgy (and sure to snag on every sweater Demi puts on from now on…I think that’s my only complaint about it.) It definitely doesn’t scream “engagement ring” to me, it could be one of those female-empowering “right hand rings” jewelry stores were trying to get us single gals to buy for ourselves a few years ago. (I’m glad that didn’t take off.) I do think a proper engagement ring will follow soon. But, hey, I got an Italian dinner for Valentine’s Day and Demi got a ring. Demi – 1, Corey – 0. Well, there’s always next year.

    Pretty ring, but he gives me the creeps.

  2. Mimz says:

    I also have a things for Men’s hands and nails, and cleanliness but his are OK, because they appear to be clean and cut. that’s ok for me.
    She’s young and in love and it’s cute and barf inducing but hey. nothing scandalous with those two these days it seems… will be watching out for that engagement ring though.

  3. Jay says:

    Demi’s mushy posts sound like those of a 14 year old girl on her one month anniversary. Vomit.

  4. Chelly says:

    I rarely post about my other half on my fb/ig page but when i do, its mostly on holidays & special occasions & i keep it short, sweet & simple. I think TOO much of the mushy can be a bit eye rolling but kind of sweet, i guess. Idk. Im not a girlie-girl in that sense so for me, less is more…even when he posts about me.

    Side Note: Ive seen worse fingernails that were totally gross so his arent bad. Ever seen a guys fingernails that have been bitten to the nub???? *puke*

    • kai says:

      People don’t bite their fingernails because they think it looks great or because it feels so nice. Speaking from experience. Comments like yours really don’t help.

  5. Emily says:

    I hate hate HATE when celebs play the “ring trolling” game!

  6. Tania says:

    I’m just gonna say it because it’s gossip and this is a gossip site, but I had read so many times that he was a drug dealer??? Was there any truth to that? Is he just living off syndication from that 70s show? She looks healthy and with it and most certainly not high. Maybe they both got clean?

  7. Tallia says:

    I like her. I honestly like her and wish she would run as fast as she could to get away from this DB.

  8. Dani says:

    I like them together. I hate that I do, but I do. He seems really good to her and she’s more than thrilled, so who are we to tell her otherwise.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      That’s my feeling too. So many people say he’s a douchebag, yet he’s apparently been a good, loyal boyfriend to someone who has gone through serious rough patches in her life AND who seems both tough enough and smart enough to turf any boyfriend who isn’t good to her.

      I think they must be a good couple. All the signs say they do.

      • Bridget says:

        All signs? Like his tendency to date very young, vulnerable girls? He’s in his 30s, and they got together when she was like 17/18. She’s not even the first underage girl he’s gotten together with (hello Lindsay Lohan!).

  9. Lama Bean says:

    My memory must be bad because I could have sworn he was barely claiming her a year or so ago.

    And I HATE when women say “he’s my everything ” and “he’s my reason for living ” and “he completes me”. Love him but don’t sound so dependent. Good god!

  10. Wentworth Miller says:

    His nails are dirty. Yuck!

  11. kri says:

    It ain’t the ring that’s wrong-it’s the guy.

  12. tealily says:

    Pretty but unwearable.

  13. Rubber Chicken says:

    She’ll soon be too old for his taste and he’ll dump her.
