Now that she’s been out of rehab for close to nine months, it seems that Demi Lovato is returning to patterns from before she voluntarily went for treatment. She dated That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama before and after her rehab stint, but they broke up about four months ago. According to some sources, their romance is back on.
Life & Style reports that the two were seen at Seth MacFarlane‘s house party over the weekend, “stealing kisses” and “holding hands.” They didn’t try to hide their affection, according to a source:
“They were dirty-dancing to the music, and when they were seated, Wilmer had his hands on Demi’s knee the entire time. He was being very boyfriend-like and affectionate.”
Part of what made their romance so shocking when they first got together in 2010 was the age difference: She’s now 19, and he’s 31. The New York Post announced their second break-up in June. At the time, sources said the split was because ”[t]he age difference meant they were in completely different places in their lives.” (Demi’s reps had said no comment.) But maybe that was just an excuse for complications brought on by rehab. Now that she’s proven herself to not be fragile and suffer any sort of relapse, maybe they decided to try again.
Interestingly, there don’t seem to be any photos of just Demi and Wilmer; instead we found group shots like this one, of them posing with Mario Lopez and Eva Longoria.
