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.

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.

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.

Demi Lovato Opened Up To Her Former ‘Sonny With A Chance’ Castmembers About Her Eating Disorder At The Time

Time spent at home in isolation during the current coronavirus pandemic has led a lot of us to connect with friends old and new on apps like Facetime and Zoom. This has been true for celebrities as well, who have been using video calls to have virtual reunions with old cast members. A few weeks ago it was the cast of High School Musical and Victorias. Last week it was the beloved Spy Kids. Now it’s the cast of Sonny With A Chance.

The Sonny With A Chance reunion saw the shows former stars including Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, and Allisyn Ashley Arm reunited.

Former cast members Matthew Scott Montgomery, Audrey Whitby, Sterling Knight, Doug Brochu, Shayne Topp, and Damien Haas also joined in on the fun and to reminisce about their old days on set. It was during this time that Lovato, thanked her former Disney Channel co-stars for their support and love while she was on the show.

At one point, Lovato thanks Thornton, who played the part of Sonny’s rival Tawni Hart on the show, for being her “biggest inspiration” after she left the cast.

“When I went away to treatment for the first time, you were my biggest inspiration coming out of it because you dealt with all of those pressures of being a woman on TV,” Demi explained, pointing to their days worrying about how they looked during fittings for the show. “It’s a shame that we wasted any energy on what we wore on set.”

Lovato also admitted during the reunion that she kept her dressing room at extremely warm temperatures because she was “underweight and freezing.”

The implications of Lovato’s words is that she was likely feeling cold and underweight because she was battling an eating disorder. Speaking about the ups and downs she experienced on the show, Lovato admitted that she “wasn’t sleeping and I was so miserable and angry too because I felt like I was being overworked.”

The Cast Of “High School Musical,” Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, And More Got Back Together For A Disney Family Singalong

ABC

We thought their Disney days were long behind them, but on Thursday night, Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, and others gathered around their cameras to sing to families across the country for “The Disney Family Singalong.”

On Thursday night, Disney fans got the ultimate star treatment as part of ABC’s star-studded Disney Family Singalong.

The event, which was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, saw performers in their most minimal and scrappy landscapes yet as they used minimal equipment and “a whole lot of harmony” to get fans watching to “join in on the top of their lungs … even your dad.” To make things seamless, the lyrics which featured Disney’s most popular songs were displayed at the bottom of the screen.

For her part, Ariana Grande refused to say she was in love. 

Belting the lyrics to the beloved Hercules tune “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” Ariana dressed the part of Meg in a purple outfit and ponytail and even took on the part of the five muses.

Perhaps the most emotional part of the night, however, was when Lovato sang “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

Singing alongside Michael Bublé for the classic “Cinderella” film, Lovato dedicated her performance to first responders. Throughout the performance were messages thanking the first responders, medical staff and grocery store workers tending to the public during the time of this pandemic.

Topping off the night was emotional performances by Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé.

Singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” from The Lion King, Aguilera’s performance was a reminder of how instrumental supporting each other is at this time. While Beyoncé joined in on the theme of Unity by singing a soulful rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star.” At the end she reassured fans saying “we’ll get through this.”
