Demi Lovato reveals a surprising reason why she ended things with Wilmer Valderrama

Relationships are hard work no matter what your circumstance, but Demi Lovato recently cited a specific (and a bit unusual) reason why things didn’t work out with Wilmer Valderrama – whom she dated for six years.

Here’s what Lovato said about her relationship, reported in an Entertainment Tonight video on Twitter:

"Being sick was always a part of my relationship with him. I always had something wrong with me. I needed to let go of that."

Lovato is only 24-years-old, but she’s grown up as a child star in the entertainment industry and we’re all aware of the monumental pressures that accompany early fame. She has always been remarkably honest about her struggles with mental health, eating disorders, and addiction, and we can understand the perspective of not wanting to associate her relationship with hardship or feelings of inadequacy.

There doesn’t appear to be any ill will between them on account of her struggles, though. Lovato has actually credited her ex for helping her through these difficult times.

We’re proud of Demi for taking control of her life, but not gonna lie… we’re missing these cute pics from date night!

Like any responsible adult, Lovato is putting her health first – and that must be applauded. And by the looks of her recent performances with BFF Nick Jonas – things are looking upward.

Oh yeah, and she’s been channeling her inner “spiritual gangster.”

Keep doing what you do, Demi. The world is your oyster.
