Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama Announce Breakup on Instagram
Another celebrity couple bites the dust: Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama are officially cold for the summer.
The pair announced via Instagram on Friday (June 3) that after almost six years together, they are giving their hearts a break and ending their relationship. However, unlike some other high-profile celebrity splits, the shocking breakup seems to be relatively drama-free, with the pop star and actor urging that they remain "best friends" after making the decision mutually.
The former couple, who first met while filming a PSA in 2010, posted this shared statement to Demi's account:
"After almost 6 loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship.
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"
The stone cold news of their split comes just days after the breakup between Tayor Swift and Calvin Harris, as well as the reported (but unconfirmed) uncoupling of Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid. 'Tis a sad week for celebrity love, indeed.
