Wilmer Valderrama has been a constant source of support for Demi Lovato since her drug overdose in July.
Valderrama, 38, has been visiting Lovato, 26, in rehab regularly, TMZ reports.
The site claims that the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer has been transferred from a rehabilitation center on the East Coast to a different location, where she’s been for over a month in a group program.
Locals have reportedly spotted Lovato and Valderrama looking affectionate at a local Starbucks frequently, though it’s unclear if they’re back together.
The “That ’70s Show” star was also at Lovato’s side when she was first hospitalized for a suspected opiate overdose, reportedly visiting her for hours at a time at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Lovato and Valderrama broke up in June 2016 after six years together, but have remained a close friendship since their breakup.
Lovato has said that Valderrama saved her life during her battles with bulimia, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, and self-harm, claiming the only “off-again” periods during their relationship were due to her illness.
“The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him,” Lovato admitted in August 2015. “People say that relapses happen before you use. Your mind starts setting up the relapse before you take that drink or that first hit. The times we’d broken up, I had already gone to that place of, ‘Yeah, this is what’s happening.’ I didn’t realize it at the time, but I just wanted to sabotage everything around me so that I could sabotage myself.”
In her 2017 documentary “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated,” Lovato confessed that she wasn’t sure she’d ever get over the actor, who she called the love of her life.
“I do have moments where it’s late at night and I’m lonely and I wonder if I made the right decision because love is a gamble,” she said. “I don’t know if I’ll lose him for the rest of my life. I think my heart is always with Wilmer, I think it was with Wilmer, I think it is with Wilmer, I think it will be. Because you don’t share six years with somebody and not give them a piece of your heart and vice versa. I’m pretty sure that I’m not going to meet anybody that compares to him but I’m trying to keep an open heart and open mind when it comes to that.”
Lovato’s mom, Dianna De La Garza, who recently spoke out on the singer’s recovery, said the split was tough on her as well.
“He was just so gracious and caring, and he still is to this day. I believe he loves her, and she loves him,” De La Garza, 56 told “Millennial Hollywood” in April 2018. “I think Demi came to a point where she wanted to make some decisions in her life, and when that happened, it just really broke us all. I mean we were just so upset.”
Reps for Lovato and Valderrama did not immediately return a request for comment.
