Demi Lovato: My White Boyfriends Weren’t as Passionate as Wilmer Valderrama

Apparently, this is one of the reasons why Demi Lovato loves Wilmer Valderrama.

In her latest interview with Latina magazine, the “Stone Cold” singer, who’s been dating the actor for six years now, says everything just clicks with Valderrama because of the passion he brings to the relationship. Opening up about her love life, the 23-year-old explains that her past boyfriends — particularly Caucasian dudes — were just never as “expressive” as her current beau.

“When I dated white guys, it wasn’t as passionate as my relationship with Wilmer,” Lovato, who’s been previously linked to singers like Joe Jonas and The Cab’s Alex DeLeon, tells the publication. “Maybe that’s just Wilmer. But I do believe that Latin people are just more expressive, more passionate with their emotions. He’s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he’s protective and he cares so much and loves so hard. I’ve been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also my best friend.”

Lovato also adds that she feels a closer bond with Valderrama, 36, because he’s been with her through thick and thin. According to the songstress, Valderrama was by her side when she was struggling with an eating disorder and addiction issues.

“I’ve been my heaviest in my relationship with Wilmer and also been my thinnest,” she says. “He’s seen it all and loves me equally, and it gives me confidence to know that.”
