Demi Lovato appears on the cover of the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Inside, she attributes her breakup with boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama to her relapsing.
She told the magazine, “The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him. People say that relapses happen before you use. Your mind starts setting up the relapse before you take that drink or that first hit. The times we’d broken up, I had already gone to that place of, ‘Yeah, this is what’s happening.’ I didn’t realize it at the time, but I just wanted to sabotage everything around me so that I could sabotage myself.”
Still, despite going through some tough times, she said that Wilmer stood behind her. She said, “We started dating when I turned 18. Right after that, I went to rehab. People told him, ‘You should probably leave. She’s on a spiral, and you’re going to be sucked down with it.’ But he was like, ‘I’m not leaving. This is somebody I really care about.’ We relate on a lot of levels. I’ve seen a lot of s**t. S**t people don’t know about. He’s seen a lot of stuff too.”
I think they are totally in it for the long haul – don’t you?
