Demi Lovato has been rumored to be dating UFC fighter Luke Rockhold for quite some time now, and a source with knowledge about the relationship has now confirmed that the two are casually seeing each other.
The source told E! News that the two are “hanging out” and just enjoying each other’s company. The source added that since Lovato’s last relationship lasted for a long time, she isn’t in a hurry to jump into a new one, although the singer reportedly gushes about Rockhold and calls him a “cool dude.”
The two fueled romance rumors when they were photographed together attending a Los Angeles Rams football game. The two reportedly kept their interaction casual, but the chemistry between them was palpable. “It was obvious there’s a connection between the two,” an eyewitness said. “He would scoot close to her when they were at the table watching the game.”
Rumors about the two resurfaced shortly after speculations that Lovato is seeing John Mayer started swirling. Mayer and Lovato were spotted having dinner in L.A. in late October, according to Us Weekly. The singers were reportedly casual, but Mayer “whispered sweet nothings” to Lovato the entire time they were together.
Mayer and Lovato were never romantically linked, but they have always been vocal about their admiration for each other’s work.
Meanwhile, rumors about Lovato and Rockhold came out shortly after Lovato and Valderrama announced their breakup in June.
In a joint statement, Lovato and Valderrama said they were ending their six-year on-and-off relationship because they realized that they were better off as friends. The two said they will remain supportive of each other’s endeavors.
Both Lovato and Valderrama appear to have already moved on from their relationship. The actor has been seen a couple of times with ex-girlfriend Minka Kelly. The actress, however, denied that she and Valderrama are dating.
