Another celebrity couple has managed to shock with its decision to end their relationship. So, Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderram announced their separation after no less than six years together. The breakup news is quite surprising, as the two seemed to be having the perfect relationship.
The separation news was confirmed by both Demi and Wilmer, who posted the same breakup statement on Instagram. “After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship,” the joint statement said.
“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. With only love, Wilmer & Demi,” it went on to add.
The exact moment when the two separated remains unknown, but Demi and Wilmer were last seen together on May 24. The pair was spotted out, enjoying a dinner date. Earlier, they were seen together at the Billboard Music Awards, in Las Vegas.
Demi and Wilmer first started to date when the young singer was only 18 years old. Actually, at that time, Demi underwent rehab treatment to be able to overcome some issues. Demi went to credit Wilmer for helping her seek and successfully undergo rehab. She constantly revealed how great Wilmer was and how wonderfully their relationship was going. During a previous interview, Demi revealed that the only time when she and Wilmer were separated was actually when she was relapsing. “He never takes credit for my sobriety, but I guarantee I wouldn’t be alive without him today,” Demi previously said.
Also, Demi said that Wilmer was a great person, during an interview last month. “I’ve been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also as my best friend,” she said. At this point, no details have been revealed with regards to this separation, but, most likely some things will be made public in the near future.
