Demi Lovato’s Dating History Shows That She Prefers Latino Men

Demi Lovato has been on the scene since she was 10 years old. From her start on several kids TV shows and movies, she is now an international musician and songwriter. At the age of 26, Demi has 6 bestselling albums under her belt.

She also collaborated with Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi last year on “Échame La Culpa” which reached the top twenty in 19 different countries. The music video for “Échame La Culpa” currently has over 1 billion views on Youtube. It is the most-watched music video Demi Lovato has been involved in. Demi sings in English and Spanish in the song.

Demi is also praised for her charity work, and has talked openly about her struggles with addiction and mental health. She recently came out of a 90 day stay in rehab following an overdose during the summer. A frequent question about her life is:  did Cody Linley rape Demi Lovato?

The story starts at the age of 14 when Demi was first beginning her career on Disney Channel. Several sources indicate that Demi’s first boyfriend was called Jonathan Fryer. There are still a few old images of the couple online.

Demi was given her breakthrough acting role as the lead star in Disney Channel’s Camp Rock and TV series Sonny with a Chance. During this time, she must have met and interacted with tons of new people, and even reportedly dated a few.

Cody Linley is an actor and is most famous for his role as Jake Ryan in Disney’s Hannah Montana. Although Demi never appeared on Hannah Montana, filming her own show at the time, she must have come into contact with Cody through working for the same network. On screen, Cody played the love interest to Miley Stewart, who was played by Miley Cyrus. Demi and Cody dated for about a year when Demi was 15 years old.

The reason Demi and Cody broke up is unknown, although they may have been too young to start anything serious. They have remained friends and were pictured together at a party in 2014.

In 2008, it was reported that Demi was dating musician Alex DeLeon. Alex is the lead singer of the band The Cab. We don’t know how Demi and Alex met and began dating, or how they broke up. Alex has never appeared on any Disney Channel show but he did use Twitter to express his love for Demi’s second album back in 2009, showing he still cared for Demi and appreciated her talents even after they had broken up. It is not known how long Demi and Alex were dating but it was likely less than a year.

After Alex, Demi got close with somebody else who had links with Hannah Montana just like her previous boyfriend, Cody.

As well as Miley Cyrus’ on screen boyfriend, Cody Linley, Demi also dated Miley Cyrus’ real life brother, Trace Cyrus. Trace is a musician and singer and was part of the band Metro Station, which he formed in 2006 with Mason Musso.

It’s assumed that, like Demi and Cody, Demi and Trace met on the set of Hannah Montana too, as Demi was still working for Disney at that time. Trace and Demi began dating in 2009 but broke up soon after.

Demi’s romance with Trace didn’t work out for two reasons; age and distance.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Trace revealed that he was very close with Demi and could really relate to her. However, Trace also explained the reasons why the relationship didn’t work out.

When asked about the breakup, Trace said: “Unfortunately, we both have very busy schedules – we’re both on tour right now. I’m always on the other side of the world and so is she, so it just seemed like something that can’t work out at this time.” It’s clear that Demi was beginning to experience the pressures of sustaining a relationship with such a public and busy work life. However, this wasn’t the only reason things broke down between them.

Trace also added: “She is a lot younger than me. When someone is that much younger, you’re looking for different things in relationships.” During their relationship in 2009, Demi was only 16 years old, whilst Trace was 20. It seems clear now that, whilst Demi was juggling her hectic routine starring in her own show and filming Camp Rock, the age gap was too much of a strain on the relationship.

After the release of Camp Rock, Demi was praised for her singing and acting talent. As well as this, her on screen chemistry with Joe Jonas was also talked about a lot. In 2010, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam was released which brought Demi and Joe’s characters even closer romantically. Rumours of their off screen relationship started circulating but were never confirmed at the time.

Demi and Joe have openly talked about their brief relationship which lasted a month or two in 2010. With the amount of speculation surrounding the pair, the short relationship was surprising. It seems that Demi and Joe’s friendship was too strong to form a romantic connection.

The Jonas Brothers, consisting of Joe, Kevin and Nick, all starred in both Camp Rock movies. Although Demi and Joe were rumored to be dating, Nick was also super close with Demi. There has been no evidence to suggest that Demi and Nick were ever involved romantically but they still stay in touch today as close friends.

That being said, it has been speculated that one of the songs from Demi’s most recent album called “Ruin The Friendship” is actually about Nick. This would make sense as Demi and Nick are such good friends. It could be that there was always something more there for Demi. Demi has neither confirmed nor denied that the song is about Nick.

During an interview with Access Hollywood in 2016, Demi revealed that she sees both Nick and Joe as her “best friends” and “brothers”. It’s clear that the three amigos have stayed in touch all these years later. They continue to perform and tour together.

More recently, following Demi’s overdose, all three of The Jonas Brothers tweeted out their love and wishes for Demi.

In 2010, Demi began dating actor Wilmer Valderrama, who is of Venezuelan and Colombian descent. Their relationship was originally kept on the down low for quite a few years but they soon became more open and confident about their love for each other.

In an interview with Latina magazine, Demi explained how her relationship with Wilmer was much more passionate than her previous relationships with white guys. Demi also said that Latino people are “more expressive” and “more passionate with their emotions”.

It’s clear that Demi preferred a Latino man because her relationship with Wilmer lasted 6 years, dramatically longer than any of her previous relationships.

Demi continues the interview with Latina by talking a bit about her mental health. Demi revealed that Wilmer gave her heaps of support and guidance, keeping her strong. In the relationship, Demi said that Wilmer had seen every up and down of her mental health but still loved her the same, which gave her confidence. As Demi and Wilmer were so close and were there for each other’s worst moments, it proves the relationship was a serious one.

In 2016, Demi and Wilmer announced on Instagram that they had broken up. They believed that they were better off as best friends and still remain in contact with each other. Both Demi and Wilmer starred in the animated film, Charming, in 2018, showing that they are still on good terms.

Following the break up with Wilmer, Demi began dating Luke Rockhold. Luke is an American UFC mixed martial artist. The couple were spotted together a few times in 2016 but by 2017 it was revealed that they had broken up. Talking of the breakup, Luke told PlayersVoice that he loved how passionate Demi was and that he thinks she’s “still a nice girl”. It appears that there aren’t any hard feelings between the couple.

Demi quickly moved onto another brief relationship with the MMA fighter Guilherme Vasconcelos. The couple apparently spent the New Year together in 2017 but the romance soon fizzled out. By May, the pair had reportedly split up. A source revealed to PEOPLE that “it wasn’t a dramatic split” and that “the relationship just ran its course”.

Multiple rumours surfaced in 2017 that Demi was in a romantic relationship with DJ Lauren Abedini, who is an L.A. based female DJ and music producer. Her better known stage name is “Kittens”. The idea that Demi and Lauren might have been dating came about after the two were photographed at Disneyland. They appeared very close and were holding hands. Demi shared the photos of the two of them together but never confirmed whether the two of them were romantically involved.

Demi has never been afraid to talk about her fluid sexuality and her 2015 song “Cool for the Summer” had lyrics that hinted at Demi experimenting with having experiences with women. After her long relationship with Wilmer didn’t work out, it could be that Demi began trying new things whilst meeting new people, including women.

Moving on to the events of 2018, Demi was victim to an overdose in the summer which led to her being hospitalized. Demi has just recently returned to L.A. where she has been spotted eating out with clothing designer Henry Levy. Henry also struggles with substance addiction and, according to TMZ, the two appeared cosy and content together, laughing and smiling.

Is Demi single now?

Following her overdose, Demi took a break from social media whilst she recovered. However, last week Demi broke the silence after posting on Instagram a picture of herself voting in the US elections. Whilst encouraging people to vote, Demi was also alone in the photo, without a man. As she focuses on her health and wellbeing, Demi might be taking the time to be single for the foreseeable future. It’s clear that she has made some great friends in her career and continues to receive love and support from her fans.

The Cast of ‘Glee’ Along With Demi Lovato Paid Tribute to Naya Rivera At the GLAAD Awards

The Cast of ‘Glee’ Along With Demi Lovato Paid Tribute to Naya Rivera At the GLAAD Awards

On Thursday, the cast of “Glee” paid tribute to Naya Rivera at the GLAAD Media Awards. Rivera was a once-in-a-lifetime talent the touched so many lives personally and through the screen while she was alive. But perhaps none of Naya’s roles were as impactful as Santana Lopez was.

This year, GLAAD decided to take time to honor the impact Naya Rivera had on LGBTQ representation onscreen.

During a time when LGBTQ represenation onscreen was rare, Santana Lopez was groundbreaking for being both queer and Latina. Santana went from a shut-off closeted cheerleader to an out-and-proud lesbian woman. This was a story arc many queer kids had never seen before.

Demi Lovato introduced the cast of “Glee” with a touching speech. She described how honored she was (and still is) to have played Santana’s girlfriend, Dani, on the show.

“I don’t have to tell you that this year was a tough, tough year,” Lovato said. “A particular moment of heartbreak stands out for me: losing my friend Naya Rivera. I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya’s girlfriend, Dani, on ‘Glee.’”

“The character Naya played, Santana Lopez, was groundbreaking for closeted queer girls — like I was at the time,” she went on. “And her ambition and accomplishments inspired Latina women all over the world.”

Then, dozens of former “Glee” cast members gathered via Zoom to pay tribute to Naya Rivera.

The tribute featured former “Glee” actors like Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer, and Kevin McHale. There were also many others.

“Naya would be honored to receive this recognition,” read the statement. “When Naya was told that Santana would be a lesbian she called me to let me know and I asked her how did she feel about that and she said ‘I feel great about it!'”

“This year marks the tenth anniversary that Naya’s character, Santana Lopez, came out on ‘Glee’,” said Dot-Marie Jones, who played Coach Beast on the Fox series.

“Santana basically got disowned by her family. And as alot of us know, that’s a feeling too many LGBTQ kids know too well,” continued Chris Colfer, who played Kurt Hummel.

The loving tribute then ended with a written statement from Naya Rivera’s mother Yolanda Previtire, who couldn’t make it to the call.

“Little did we know that she would impact so many people in the LGBTQ community. Her desire was to always be an advocate to those who did not have a voice.

“She continued: “I don’t believe that she realized how important she was to this world. I am grateful that my eldest daughter helped to change the landscape of how we view and see each other.”

“Her desire was to always be an advocate to those who did not have a voice,” the message read, in part. “I don’t believe that she realized how important she was to this world. I am grateful that my eldest daughter helped to change the landscape of how we view and see each other.”

Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande Cast a Spell With Magical “Met Him Last Night” Duet

Demi Lovato teamed up with fellow superstar Ariana Grande on her new album Dancing with the Devil… the Art of Starting Over. The pop powerhouses join forces for the duet “Met Him Last Night.”

This is Demi’s first album since her hospitalization for a drug overdose.

Dancing with the Devil marks Lovato’s first album since her 2018 hospitalization for a drug overdose. As the album’s title alludes to, throughout the 19 songs she explores battling with her inner demons. In the music video for the title track, Lovato reenacts the night of her drug overdose. She and Grande come face-to-face with one of the devils in “Met Him Last Night.”

Ariana wrote “Met Him Last Night” for Demi and, fortunately, they recorded it together.

“[Ariana has] always been super supportive of me and my career, and it’s so awesome to have a friend like her in the industry,” Lovato told Apple Music about the collaboration. “She started writing this song and immediately thought of me, so when she gave it to me, I was like, ‘We should just sing this together.'”

Grande wrote “Met Him Last Night” with Stanaj, Dominican-American songwriter Xavi, and her TBHits, the producer behind “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings.” Lovato and Demi trade verses about toxic lovers that they’re hung up on.

“I seen the devil, yeah I met him last night / One conversation, now he’s spending the night,” they sing together.

The vocal power, the beautiful harmonies, and finally hearing Demi and Ariana together makes this spellbinding song all the more magical.

Lovato has a number of all-women collaborations on her Dancing With the Devil album. She also teams up with rap star Saweetie in “My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriends” and Miley Cyrus’ sister, Noah Cyrus, in “Easy.”
