demi lovato dating history

Demi Lovato is one of the very few celebs to air their dirty laundry, heartbreaks and mental health issues for all to see. They’ve openly discussed past flames, their status as non-binary (and changing their pronouns to they/them) and has shown nothing but love towards their ex boyfriends – and girlfriends.

While you might only remember their high-profile relationships with Joe Jonas and Wilmer Valderrama, Demi has actually had far more exciting flings!

We’re about to take a trip down memory lane and see who was lucky enough to share a relationship with the superstar – here’s a list of Demi Lovato’s dating history…

Ex: Cody Linley

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: 2007-2008 

Demi’s puppy love romance was with fellow Disney star, Cody Linley. This relationship had a rocky start, though, with an awful first date. To begin with, Cody was two hours late to pick Demi up; his car then broke down on the way to the restaurant, where Demi had to hold a flashlight for him to fix the car; then they made it to the steakhouse and he was late dropping Lovato back home. After that, it’s no surprise that the pair’s romance fizzled out after a while.

Ex: Alex DeLeon

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2008 – 2009

It was rumored that Demi and Alex had a brief fling, but according to a source close to them, the pair struggled as they had hectic schedules and didn’t see each other much. Demi’s song, Catch Me was inspired by their year-long relationship and explains the feelings that they had for their ex boyfriend.

Ex: Trace Cyrus

Who is He? Guitarist
Dated In: 2009 

Indeed, Miley Cyrus’ brother has a place in Demi’s dating history. Demi dated Trace who was four years their senior in 2009, but their relationship only lasted 7 months. Like Alex, Trace was always on the road and the pair didn’t actually see each other much. Trace ended up calling it quits by admitting that it just wasn’t the right timing for them to be together. Nonetheless, the two celebs parted on good terms and only wished the best for each other.

Ex: Joe Jonas

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2010 

It seems that every female celeb dated one of the Jonas Brothers at one time or another (Taylor and Miley, we’re looking at you!), and Demi is no different. After filming two movies together (Camp Rock and Camp Rock: The Final Jam), the pair grew incredibly close and even dated for a while. However, their romance lasted just a few short months. Joe ended their relationship, claiming that he sees Demi as more of a friend. Surprisingly, the rejection didn’t leave a bitter taste in Demi’s mouth, and they openly congratulated Joe and Sophie Turner’s engagement in 2017!

Ex: Wilmer Valderrama

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: 2010-2016 

Demi’s longest and deepest relationship was with That 70s Show actor, Wilmer Valderrama. Demi was only 18 when they began dating 29 year-old Wilmer, and many critics were quick to judge their age difference. However, despite all the backlash, they seemed extremely happy in their relationship and described Wilmer as their rock.

Six years later, Demi announced their break up and explained that they were better off as friends. That said, Demi revealed in their documentary, Simply Complicated, that it took a long time for them to come to terms with being alone and discover who they actually were as a person. And despite their bad breakup with their ex, they were still happy for Wilmer when he announced his engagement to model, Amanda Pacheco.

Rumored Ex: Odell Beckham Jr

Who is He? Basketball player 
Dated In: 2016

After their long-term relationship with Wilmer, Demi rebounded with Odell Beckham Jr. The pair were spotted on a few dates, but nothing more was reported on their hook-up. Despite knowing that Demi was rebounding with him, Odell stated that he didn’t care and was enjoying hanging out and getting to know the singer.

Ex: Luke Rockhold

Who is He? UFC middleweight champion
Dated In: 2016

Lovato also casually dated Luke Rockhold in 2016 after meeting him while training at the same gym. They even got matching tattoos, but the ink didn’t keep them together. The pair seemed to be on two different pages when it came to their affair and they split before Christmas in 2016.

Ex: Guilherme ”Bomba” Vasconcelos

Who is He? MMA fighter
Dated In: 2017

Shortly after their split with one pro-athlete, Demi showed interest in another. Demi and Guilherme were hanging out on New Year’s Eve and posted an array of cute pictures together. Sadly, the fling ran its course and the pair split in May 2017.

Rumored Ex: Lauren Abedini

Who is She? DJ
Dated In: 2017

Yep! It’s rumored that Demi once had a girlfriend! After being open about her sexuality, Demi seemed awfully close with DJ, Lauren Abedini in September 2017. The pair were spotted holding hands in Disneyland and Lauren gushed about how amazing Demi’s new album was on Instagram. Whether this was just a super close friendship or something more is untold, but Demi confirmed that they were very much single during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in October 2017.

Ex: Henry Levy

Who is He? Clothing designer
Dated In: 2018-2019

Henry and Demi shared a deeper understanding for each other as both spent the same time in a rehab centre several years prior. He was a sober companion for Demi and helped keep them on the straight and narrow after they’d relapsed in 2018. However, the pair split before they entered rehab for mental health issues in 2019. Demi needed time to focus on their thoughts and their healing, and their family members felt that their relationship was getting in the way of that.

Ex: Mike Johnson

Who is He? Bachelorette contestant
Dated In: 2019

After crushing on The Bachelorette’s contestant, Mike Johnson on Twitter, the hunky star reciprocated the affection by commenting on one of Demi’s bikini pics. Following their social media exchanges, the pair were spotted sharing a few intimate dates together. “Demi Lovato and I went on a date,” Johnson confirmed. The romantic relationship didn’t last long, however. A month later, Mike openly asked out Keke Palmer, putting an end to his rumored relationship with Lovato.

Ex: Austin Wilson

Who is He? Model
Dated In: 2019

Demi had another short-lived romance with long-time friend, Austin and even made it Instagram official when they posted a cute, mirror selfie of them both. Just a month later, however, Demi deleted all traces of Austin on their social profiles, confirming that their affair was over. As always, they were super kind and considerate of Austin’s feelings and they asked a fan to not go after him and explained that he’s a good guy.

Ex-Fiance: Max Ehrich

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: March 2020 – September 2020

Demi and this new man looked like a match made in heaven – until things came crumbling down.

The singer and Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich, met a few weeks prior to the Coronavirus lockdown, but got to know each other well during their self-isolation. They made the relationship official by appearing and dancing together in Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s video for Stuck With U and in July 2020, Demi announced their engagement.

But just when we thought Demi had found their prince, it was announced that the duo had called off their engagement. A source told People, “It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers. They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”

Rumored Ex: Noah Cyrus

Who is She? Singer
Dated In: July 2021

They’ve dated Miley Cyrus’ brother, now they’re apparently hooking up with Miley’s sister! Indeed, it was rumored that Demi and singer-songwriter Noah Cyrus were a thing! Soon after coming out as non-binary and after “hanging out” in recording studios, and as of late, holding hands at Six Flags, gossip was rife that the duo were dating.

A source told Page Six that “their behavior during the recording sessions had people wondering whether they were more than just friends.” Even dinner dates got everyone questioning what was going on. But according to E! News, “They are not exclusively dating by any means” and were merely “hanging out” and “enjoying each other’s company.”

The pair unfollowed each other on Instagram less than two months later.

Despite Demi’s history of failed relationships, we’re hoping that they soon find their prince (or princess) charming and finally finds their perfect match.

Which of their beau’s do you think Demi is best suited to? Is it their ex-fiance, Max or their longtime ex-boyfriend, Wilmer? Let us know by leaving a comment in the section below.
