True love, they say never dies, it may be suppressed, but in reality, it gets stronger with time and that is the case with Wilmer Valderrama and Demi Lovato. Since the couple broke up in 2016, Demi has maintained that Valderrama remained the love of her life and that seems to be the same for the actor and singer who was seen running to her bedside when the news of her overdose and hospitalization broke the internet in July 2018.
Valderrama who according to sources was surprised to learn of his ex’s apparent overdose became a regular face at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was hospitalized vowing to stand by her all through her recovery process. If they loved each other so much, why then did they break-up? Here is all you need to know about the actor/singer and his relationship with the singer/songwriter and actress.
Wilmer Valderrama – Brief Bio And Early Life
The American actor, singer, and producer was born in Miami, Florida on the 30th of January 1980 as Wilmer Eduardo Valderrama. He has a Colombian and Venezuelan heritage. At the age of three, his family moved to Venezuela but Wilmer moved back to the U.S at the age of fourteen.
He began his career as a stage actor before making the transition to on-screen acting but that didn’t mean he gave up stage acting completely. He gained prominence playing Fez in the sitcom That ’70s Show for eight years (1998-2006). He also played Carlos Madrigal in From Dusk till Dawn: The Series from 2014 to 2016.
He has also appeared in many blockbuster films like Fast Food Nation, Zoom, Larry Crowne, Party Moster, Beauty Shop, The Adderall Diaries and Unaccompanied Minors.
Wilmer also lent his voice in the children’s show Handy Manny voicing Manny and in the animated film Charming as the voice of Prince Charming. He also hosted the MTV series Yo Momma between 2006/2007 and has been a recurring character on The Ranch as well as on Grey’s Anatomy.
Not many know that Wilmer Valderrama’s first love is actually music, well, he said so himself and has also tried putting that aspect of his talent to work. In 2011, he released a single “The Way I Fiesta”, whose video was directed by The Lonely Island’s Akiva Schaffer.
The talented Hollywood actor has an estimated net worth of $18 million and his earnings are from his acting career and from his other TV appearances.
Who is His Wife or Girlfriend?
Wilmer Valderrama has never been married but that doesn’t mean that the Hollywood star hasn’t been in and out of relationships, in fact, he has dated a handful of women who are also well-known celebrities beginning with Ariana Richards from the science fiction film Jurassic Park.
After his short-lived romance with Richards, he dated his ’70s Show co-star Mila Kunis, then Jennifer Love Hewitt who he reportedly dated briefly in 1999, then for one year, he was with Venezuelan actress Majandra Delfino who starred in Roswell.
Between 2001 and 2002, he had a sizzling romance with Mandy Moore, who he claimed during an interview with Howard Stern in 2006, lost her virginity to him, Moore would later term Valderrama’s claims as untrue. He dated Mischa Barton and even Lindsay Lohan fell for his charm. Wilmer and Lohan kept their relationship top secret until the actress turned eighteen in 2004.
He was then rumored to be with Ashlee Simpson, before dating Avril Lavigne, between 2009 and 2010, that was after her divorce from Deryck Whibley, even our very own Rihanna seemed unable to resist the charm from Valderrama’s kingdom as the two were rumored to be an item in 2009 (this was not confirmed though) and then with Demi Lovato.
His Relationship With Demi Lovato
Wilmer’s relationship with Lovato has been his longest so far. They met for the first time in 2009 when Demi was just seventeen years old and began dating the next year when she turned eighteen and according to the singer, it was love at first sight.
After six loving years together, when many of us (including Demi’s mom) were expecting to hear that the lovebirds were taking a journey into forever, Wilmer Valderrama took to Instagram to announce they were ending their relationship, he didn’t state the reason for the break-up asides that they realized they are better off as friends. Are you kidding me? It took them six solid years to realize that?
He, however, added in the Instagram post that it was an incredibly difficult decision for both of them to make. Lovato would later confirm Welmer’s Instagram post in a documentary, stating that their break-up had nothing to do with falling out of love but partly due to her personal struggles.
She was determined to move on after the break-up but that has not really been that easy for her. Lovato explained in the documentary how she almost fell apart seeing Wilmer for the first six months after their break-up, she has questioned if breaking up was the right decision.
The way Wilmer Valderrama ran off to Demi’s bedside after the news of her overdose and hospitalization broke the internet in July 2018, is a strong indication, he has also not gotten over her yet. Will the one-time lovebirds get back together? We can only wait and see.
However, after spending ten days in the hospital for a drug overdose, Demi Lovato has accepted to get help from a drug treatment center.
