Poor Demi Lovato. You get in one fistfight with a backup dancer and all of a sudden, you ship off to rehab and all your secrets come out. Ever since Lovato checked herself into a treatment center, rumors have swirled that she’s a cutter with an eating disorder, she’s upset that her ex, Joe Jonas, is dating Ashley Greene, and as of today, she apparently has a raging coke habit and is dating Wilmer Valderrama, who is twelve years her senior.
The New York Daily News writes that Lovato’s been turning to drugs and booze lately, ever since her split with Jonas. Brian Payne, a college student in Texas who said Lovato partied with him and his friends last year said “She was doing line after line like a pro – and she was 17 at the time. I just remember her doing it [cocaine] as if she had been doing it for a long time. It didn’t seem like something new to her.” Other sources have claimed Lovato was ” partying” on the night of her altercation with her dancer, which could mean anything, but makes drug use more of a possibility.
As for her relationship with Valderrama, whose lust for the younger ladies is a little creepy at this point (remember when he talked about taking Mandy Moore‘s virginity on Howard Stern? Yeah, gross), the two met while filming a PSA for earthquake relief in March and were romantically linked as far back as May. Valderrama’s rep denies a relationship, but a source says Demi would display photos of the two of them while she was on tour and would introduce him to people as her boyfriend.
We hope that Demi gets the help she needs for whatever demons she’s battling, but in the meantime, let’s just take a look back at Wilmer’s past “demons”, a.k.a. the very young ladies he’s dated. Ironically, he does seem to have a positive effect on the careers of most of the girls he’s been with, but it’s still creepy that while he gets older, the girls seem to get younger.
