Demi excites her girls with a special visit from hunky
X Factor Season 2 judge Demi Lovato is seemingly giving her heart a break and rekindling things with ex boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. Demi, 20, and Wilmer, 32, have stayed close since splitting in 2011 — but recent reports point to something more than friendship.
Back in September, The New York Post spotted Wilmer at Demi’s side all night at The X Factor premiere party. “Wilmer stayed by Demi’s side all night,” a source reported. “He was very protective of her and had his legs straddled around her chair while they watched the show.” They were also reportedly seen together during a private event at Bagatelle LA in West Hollywood.
Now, we have photo evidence that Wilmer is sticking by Demi’s side and supporting her X Factor work. Contestant Paige Thomas tweeted a photo of herself, Demi, and Wilmer. “So grateful for life and such a beautiful day yesterday with an amazing mentor @ddlovato and @WValderrama!” Paige tweeted. In another photo, Wilmer is seen hugging single mother Paige by the waist. Cece Frey and eliminated Jennel did not post any photos.
A source previously told HollywoodLife.com, “Demi & Wilmer are not officially dating but it’s only a matter of time. They really have always liked each other, still have tons of respect for each other, and are still in love.”
