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.

Everyone On Instagram Is Praising Demi For Her Most Popular Instagram Post Yet

People are always going to have something to say, especially when it comes to celebrities and what they choose to post on social media or how they choose to live their lives. But what’s worse is when internet trolls decide to project their own insecurities onto female celebrities, in particular, in destructive ways. 

People who would otherwise never make nasty comments about a women’s body or appearance in person and to their face, use the comments section on social media platforms to hide behind the keyboard and spread negativity. Singer, songwriter, and actor Demi Lovato has always had a complicated relationship with the public when it comes to unsolicited advice about her life choices and her body.

But it looks like she’s finally learning to be comfortable in her skin no matter what others say.

Last night, Lovato shared a gorgeous unedited photo of herself in a two-piece leopard print bathing suit.

However, it has people talking for other reasons. In the photo, Lovato can be seen looking over her shoulder walking out of a pool, and the cellulite on her legs visible. “This is my biggest fear,” Lovato said in her caption. “A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELULLIT!!!” 

Take notes, everybody. It’s no longer called “cellulite” — Lovato is helping us women reclaim that word and call it CELULLIT. 

But Lovato’s message went deeper. She went on to write that she was so tired of being “ashamed” of her body and that she was done with editing photos of her body as well. She went on to state that she’s working on no longer caring about someone else’s idea of what beautiful means other than her own. 

“I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards,” Lovato wrote in her Instagram caption. 

“So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to town a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day.” While she’s struggled with mental health issues, eating disorders, and addiction, Lovato has seemingly always been open with her fans about her journey through it all. 

In July of 2018, the 27-year-old singer was hospitalized after an apparent overdose and went on a social media hiatus until she returned to Twitter to give fans a health update. “All my fans need to know is I’m working hard on myself, I’m happy and clean and I’m SO grateful for their support,” she wrote on Twitter on December 2018

Lovato’s latest act of empowerment also comes two months after she clapped back at a troll who told her to go on a “diet” after paparazzi photos of her surfaced.

Last day as 26 🖤

A post shared by Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) on

According to Pop Crush,  back in July, an Instagram user posted a paparazzi shot of Lovato getting into a car after a workout and captioned it, “hey demi dm me so we can discuss a diet plan for you.” 

Lovato wasn’t having it and replied to the unnecessary and rude comments that were made toward her. “I actually am choosing not to diet and fall back into unhealthy behaviors at the risk of losing my sanity or mental health but thank you for the offer! Super sweet,” she replied according to Pop Crush. 

This incident, however, caused Lovato to take another break from social media.

But now she’s back and it looks like she’s taking a more positive approach and not paying any mind to the trolls — as it should be. Lovato went on to write in her caption that she feels great about being back in television and film while “not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit.” 

We’re so glad she’s feeling better about not just her career, but her self and her body. If there’s anyone who deserves to feel their very best, it’s Lovato. At such a young age, she’s gone through so many life-altering experiences that we’re rooting for to finally find peace and feel the most comfortable in her own skin. 

It’s also great to see the amount of support she received from fans and other celebrities sharing nothing but positive things on her photo. 

Lovato ended her caption by saying that she hopes to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. There’s no doubt that’s inspired us all. 

Everyone Thought Demi Lovato Was Shading Taylor Swift During Her Performance At The VMAs, But She Was Living Her Best Life

Everyone Thought Demi Lovato Was Shading Taylor Swift During Her Performance At The VMAs, But She Was Living Her Best Life

@ddlovato / Instagram

At Monday’s MTV Video Music Awards on August 6, singer and actor Demi Lovato was nowhere to be seen on the red carpet. The singer was up for Best Dance Video for her work with Clean Bandit in “Solo” but lost to The Chainsmokers featuring Bebe Rexha for “Call You Mine.” According to reports, Demi’s absence sparked rumors that she missed the MTV VMA’s because of a feud with Taylor Swift. 

Of course, that rumor was far from the truth which turns out is actually way better.

In fact, Lovato wasn’t in attendance because she was busy filming another project. 

As she revealed yesterday via Instagram yesterday, she’ll be joining the upcoming third and final season of “Will & Grace.” So while people were making up rumors about her absence from the VMA’s saying it was because of drama with Taylor Swift, Lovato was busy filming her three-episode guest arc. 

But first thing’s first, can we stop pinning women against each other? It’s such a tired and poor excuse. Plus, do people ever stop to think about how the rumors they start online or the comments they make will affect someone’s mental health? Even if the people we’re talking about here are celebrities. At the end of the day, they’re people, too. 

Further, the former Disney star has always been open with her fans and the public about her struggles with sobriety, self-love, and mental health.

 So why would people continue to speak this way of her just to stir up some controversy?

According to HelloGiggles, the rumors began when Lovato posted an Instagram Story about skipping the MTV VMA’s ceremony right after Taylor Swift had won the night’s Video of the Year Award. She took to Instagram to write, “I skipped the VMA’s for a REASON. Well, that and I just hate awards shows.” 

Whatever her reason may have been, it’s her business and part of her private life, so fans and the public alike shouldn’t be quick to make assumptions about it. Plus, we’re sure she has her reasons for hating awards shows too. We can’t even imagine the scrutiny and pressure she must go through every time. 

After that post, Swift fans quickly were led to believe that she was being shady toward Taylor. 

But that wasn’t the case and while Lovato may not have explicitly addressed what Swift fans were theorizing, she still wrote in an Instagram Story according to HelloGiggles, “Okay I can’t tell you guys what I’m doing (you’ll find out super soon tho) but it’s making me SO HAPPY. I’m having SO MUCH FUN and I can’t stop laughing. Now go come up with crazy-ass theories as to what it might be!!!” 

While Taylor and Demi’s relationship has been rocky in the past, the former Disney star wasn’t being shady and ended up actually addressing Swift’s fans.

That was when she announced she was “literally living my dream” because she would be a guest star on “Will & Grace.” Enough of the drama, we can’t wait to see Demi Lovato get back to her acting roots on the third and final season of “Will & Grace.”  According to a spokesperson for NBC, Lovato will guest star as a character named Jenny, “a guarded girl who comes into the life of Will (played by Eric McCormack), in three episodes of the sitcom in 2020.” 

Since Lovato’s announcement, a couple of her soon-to-be costars have shared their excitement over her joining the team. 

According to NBC News, Debra Messing, who plays Grace, commented on Lovato’s post and said, “DEMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!! You are so sweet. I am so happy you came to play with us! You are now officially part of the family.” McCormack and Sean Hayes, who plays Hack, also shared their own photos with Lovato on set, expressing their excitement over the news. 

Lovato will appear in three episodes sometime in 2020, during the third season of the show. NBC announced that the upcoming season of the “Will & Grace” revival will be the last and consist of 18 episodes. The specific premiere date will be announced later.

Despite the rumors that began to rise due to Lovato’s absence from the MTV VMA’s that she was throwing shade at Taylor Swift, the singer isn’t paying attention to the negativity and instead of focusing on the positive aspects of her career. Her return to acting should be a joyous and exciting time to get back into how she started her career in the industry. 

We’re excited to see what Demi Lovato’s character in “Will & Grace” will get into for its final season.
