Lovato, 26, was spotted grabbing dinner with the Enfants Riches Déprimés designer, 27, at the celebrity haunt Nobu in Malibu, California. She kept her shiny tresses down for the night out and lit up with a smile as Levy drove the duo in his SUV. At one point, Lovato and Levy shared a kiss, photos published by E! News show.
“Demi looked great. She seemed happy about her date night,” a Nobu source tells PEOPLE. “They were very affectionate. They walked in hand-in-hand and kissed throughout dinner. They definitely looked like a couple. He was very sweet to her and even stood up when she went to the ladies room. They shared a lot of food, including dessert, but no alcohol. He took care of the check.”
“He is someone she met years ago,” a Lovato friend told PEOPLE in November. “Henry has been helping Demi stay on the right path.”
“Demi has known Henry for years and wore his clothes in the past,” another insider previously told PEOPLE. “He has a bit of a troubled past as well, but is doing well now. He will be great at supporting Demi’s sobriety. He is kind of an eccentric guy, but sweet. Demi won’t be bored with him. He is very creative and passionate about life.”
“Woke up filled with hope. Dreams come true y’all… thank you Christina. I love you so much,” Lovato tweeted that day.
“I grew up in Texas, singing to Christina every day, DESPERATELY trying to hit her high notes,” she added. “if you would’ve told me I’d have a Grammy nod with her I would’ve laughed in your face!! This is so surreal.”

After Lovato’s July overdose, she was hospitalized for almost two weeks. PEOPLE confirmed in November that Lovato had finished her stay in rehab.
That month, PEOPLE reported that Lovato was spending time at her mother Dianna De La Garza‘s house and a sober living facility.
“Demi seems to be doing well. She looks really good and is in a great mood. She also seems happy about being out and about, but her focus is definitely still her recovery,” a source told PEOPLE.
“She attends meetings and receives treatment. Her number one priority seems to be her health,” the source noted.
