Demi Lovato Focused on Herself After Her Breakup with Wilmer Valderrama

For six years, Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama’s relationship was the subject of much interest for the entertainment media and a coterie of Hollywood elite. Their age gap was notable (Lovato was just 18 years old when she began dating a 29-year-old Valderrama), and the public always seems to reserve a special fascination for the personal lives of former Disney darlings.

Now, for Harper’s BAZAAR‘s May cover story, the I Love Me singer isn’t shying away from talking about what she’s learned about herself since ending her highly publicized relationship with Valderrama.

“I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time,” she says of the state of their current relationship (Valderrama got engaged to model Amanda Pacheco at the beginning of this year). “But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don’t really get to learn about yourself.”

She goes on to reveal that she tried using Raya, the dating and social networking app for celebrities, explaining her short-lived stint with the platform. “I just deleted it out of respect to the person I was with, then we broke up and I went to get back on,” she says. “And I was like, ‘You know what? It’s fine. I don’t need to be on this because I think I’m supposed to be alone right now.'”

Still, Lovato’s current relationship status is a bit murky. Recently, she accidentally crashed an Instagram Live session hosted by her alleged new boyfriend, Max Ehrich. Her unintentional cameo also suggested that the two are self-quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A source at E! News said that their coupling is fairly new, but that the pair are well-suited for each other. “Max is very into music and health, and he doesn’t like to party,” the insider said. “He is a good influence on Demi and they have a lot in common.”
