Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama split after nearly 6 years together


A rough week of young celebrity love continues as singer Demi Lovato and actor Wilmer Valderrama have broken up after nearly 6 years of dating.

Demi, 23, and Wilmer, 36, made the following joint statement via Instagram last night:

“After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship. This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends. We will always be supportive of one another. Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years.”

In May’s Latina Magazine cover feature, Lovato praised Valderrama’s passion.  “He’s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he’s protective and he cares so much and loves so hard. I’ve been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also my best friend,” she said.

In January, Lovato posted the following in celebration of the pair’s years together.
