“Cool For the Summer” singer Demi Lovato is heating up with UFC superstar Luke Rockhold, TMZ Sports wrote in an exclusive report Friday. The new reputed couple hasn’t confirmed their relationship, but they did post a picture of possible matching tattoos on their individual Instagram accounts.
Lovato, 24, and Rockhold, 31, have been dating for a few months. She met the former UFC middleweight champ while she was training at Unbreakable gym in Los Angeles in early 2016.
If their Instagram accounts are scrutinized, they both posted pictures of rudimentary happy faces on their pinky fingers. While they could be temporary drawings, it could be permanent ink considering Lovato’s penchant for body art.
Lovato and Rockhold connected instantly, which might come as a surprise for some considering her breakup from longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrrama. The couple called it quits in June after nearly six years together.
“After almost six loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship,” their joint statement said. “This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends. We will always be supportive of one another. Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years.”
Before their breakup, Lovato gushed about possible marrying the “That 70s Show” star, who is 12 years her senior. She told Complex Magazine in September 2015 she would want an outdoor shabby chic wedding with “lights hanging from the trees.” At the time, Lovato said she would say “yes” tomorrow if Valderamma proposed.
On Instagram, Lovato is posting pictures and videos from her tour with Nick Jonas. “Finally seeing our vision in person and getting to perform for all of you for the first time was everything to me,” she captioned one video about her concerts. “I can’t wait to see the rest of you this summer.” It garnered nearly 900,000 views from her 45.1 million followers.
