'Best of Friends No Matter What:' Demi Lovato Posts Sweet Photo with Ex Wilmer Valderrama
Demi Lovato wants the world to know that she and her ex Wilmer Valderrama are still the "best of friends"
On her Instagram Story, Lovato, 24, shared a sweet photo of herself cuddled up to Valderrama, 37, on Saturday. She captioned the shot: “Best of friends no matter what.”
The post comes about a year after the former love birds called it quits, ending their six-year 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,” both the stars posted on their respective Instagram accounts at the time.
The Story Behind the Story: Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama Break-up
“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.”
Months after announcing the split, Lovato spoke candidly about the breakup. She told Glamour last year that she leaned on Valderrama as she addressed her struggles with disordered eating, mental illness and substance abuse throughout their relationship.
“I think it’s healthy to be able to start over with someone else,” she said. “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.”
