Demi Lovato’s YouTube documentary “Simply Complicated” just debuted and in it the singer opens up about a variety of very personal subjects, including her former relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama.
Demi says she met Wilmer when she was just 17, after she went to his house to film a PSA about the 2010 census, although she admits, “I only did it because I heard it was at his house and I thought he was really cute. I didn't really care about the census forms.” Demi says it was “love at first sight” although they didn’t start dating until she was 18. She notes, “We connected on a level that I've never connected with anybody before. He was just my rock. My everything.”
And Demi insists there wasn’t any drama connected with their split. “It had nothing to do with falling out of love. We decided together that we're probably just better as friends,” she says. “I do have moments where it's late at night and I'm lonely and I wonder if I made the right decision, because love is a gamble. I don't know if I'll lose him for the rest of my life.”
Among the other Demi revelations in the film:
She is currently looking for love on a dating app, “with both guys and girls.” “I am open to human connection,” she says. “So whether that’s through a male or a female it doesn’t matter to me.”She tried cocaine for the first time when she as 17 and working on the Disney Channel. “I was scared because my mom always told me your heart could just burst if you do it,” she says. “But I did it anyways and I loved it.”Demi was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 18, and she says when she was diagnosed, “it just made sense.” She adds, “In a way, I knew that it wasn’t my fault anymore — something was actually off with me.”Demi believes she almost overdosed. “I went on like a bender for like two months where I was using daily,” she admits. “There was one night where I used a bunch of coke and I popped a few Xanax bars and I started to choke a little bit, my heart started racing, and I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, I might be overdosing right now.'”
