Was the 2015 breakup of Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama really the end for them? The former couple has been spending a lot of time together, and people are starting to take note. Reunion rumors are flying, and we’re fully here for it.
The latest outing these two took together was a cozy-looking lunch date at Los Angeles hot spot Sol y Luna over the weekend. According to Us Weekly, Lovato and Valderrama wore matching hoodies (OMG, so cute) and shared chips, guac and some inside jokes. Onlookers told the site they were smiling and laughing together the whole time.
Since they broke up in June of 2015, Valderrama and Lovato have sparked reconciliation rumors a few other times. Last August, they looked really friendly at Lovato’s 25th birthday party. And before that, in June, they had their arms wrapped around each other in photos Lovato shared from a barbecue she hosted at her house. Still, they always said they were going to stay friends, and nothing we’ve seen clearly indicates they have more than a friendship.
But we’re still hoping, OK? And not only because Lovato and Valderrama are stupid cute when they’re together, but because Lovato’s statement about the breakup was absolutely heart-wrenching.
“I’ve never loved anybody like I’ve loved Wilmer. And I still love Wilmer,” she recalled in her 2017 documentary, Simply Complicated. “When I met him and I laid eyes on him for the first time, I was in hair and makeup and I was like, ‘I love his man and I have to have him.’ But I was only 17, so he was like, ‘Get away from me.'”
She continued, “After I turned 18, we began dating and I think it was love at first sight. I don’t really believe in that, but I believe it happened. We connected on a level that I’ve never connected with anybody before. He was just my rock, my everything.”
There’s no doubt these two really feel like they’re meant to be, so we’re gonna be rooting for it as hard as we can.
