Following her split with Wilmer Valderrama in June, the singer was rumored to have hooked up with MMA fighter Guilherme Vasconcelos last month. However, now, TMZ reports that Lovato has her eyes set on another fighter.
Sources tell the website that the new couple hit it off while training at Unbreakable gym in Los Angeles, Calif. Since then, Lovato has been maintaining her new relationship long distance while she tours with Nick Jonas. So are they serious? Well, remember that tattoo Lovato, 24, recently got on her pinky finger? Her new beau has the exact same one.
Meanwhile, Lovato admits she had an easier time distancing herself from the Disney image (as opposed to Jonas) because of her stint in rehab. “For me, the transition was a little bit easier because I didn’t have to do anything to break out of the Disney mold. It’s a lot easier when you just go to rehab,” she told the Calgary Herald.
“So, I kind of grew up really fast in the public eye in that way and so when it was time to release my music, I think people looked at me differently,” Lovato added. “I wanted to prove to people that I wasn’t just a stereotypical Hollywood starlet that goes to rehab and falls back into the trap of the things that got her there.”
