Demi Lovato Reveals Her ‘Daddy Issues’ Led Her to Date Older Men

Demi Lovato and her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama had a decade-long age gap.



American singer Demi Lovato recently spoke candidly about her past dating experiences, explaining that her inclination to date older men was primarily because of her daddy issue. 

During her appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Lovato openly reflected on her earlier relationships with older men, describing them as gross.

The singer shared that she believes she once went through a phase where she found herself drawn to older individuals because of the unresolved issues stemming from her relationship with her father.

As Lovato reflected on her past relationships, she recognized that some of her partners had been more than a decade older than her at the time. 

She candidly expressed her feelings, saying, “For me, I was a teenager, and so, to me, that’s unsettling. When you’re 50 or 60, that’s perfectly fine. Even a 30 or 40-year age gap isn’t inherently concerning.” 

However, she had a firm belief that being in a relationship with someone significantly older during her formative years was detrimental to her personal development and could lead to a toxic dynamic. 

The singer emphasized that she can now confidently say that her daddy issues are no longer a part of her inner struggles. She pointed to the evidence of this growth, highlighting that she is currently in a relationship with a partner of her age. 

However, during the interview, the singer carefully avoided mentioning any specific names of her former partners.

Nevertheless, when one Reddit user initiated a discussion about the interview, a significant number of people interpreted Lovato’s comments as a veiled reference to her ex-boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, who is 12 years her senior. 

One individual shared their perspective, commenting, “The actress met her ex Wilmer Valderrama, 43, when she was 17 and he was 29. I knew this but every time I read about it it makes me nauseous. Good on her for realizing.”

Likewise, another individual expressed their empathy, mentioning that they were glad to see Lovato taking the time to process these experiences.

The person went on to share their perspective, recounting that Valderrama’s relationship with her seemed peculiar in any context and especially troubling when considering that he was fully aware of her addiction.

Regarding the singer’s relationship with her late father, it was known to have been challenging. In a 2015 video series about making her album Confident, Lovato courageously disclosed her father’s abusive tendencies. 

She revealed that his father was mean, but he genuinely wanted to improve himself and repair his relationship with the family. Additionally, the singer mentioned that her father faced mental health challenges that affected his ability to lead the family effectively.

Detail on Demi Lovato’s relationship with Wilmer Valderrama

As previously mentioned, Lovato first crossed paths with Valderrama while working on a PSA for Voto Latino in 2010, but at that time, she was only 17 years old. Valderrama, being mindful of her age, decided not to pursue a romantic relationship until she turned 18. 

Later, as soon as the singer turned 18 years old, they officially started dating and were first seen sharing a kiss outside his house in November 2011. They also attended the Topshop Topman LA Opening Party together in February 2013. 

Following that moment, the former couple became more open about their relationship on social media. For example, on Valderrama’s birthday, Lovato expressed her affection on Twitter with a heartfelt message, thanking him for being her support during challenging times.

She wrote, “To the funniest, most inspiring, incredible man I know. @WValderrama – thank you for helping me get through my darkest moments, You truly are a light to this world and to my life. Happy Birthday!!!”

Similarly, in 2014, the singer shared a candid picture of the two of them asleep and added a playful caption, saying, “#TBT to that one time we had an hour to kill before our movie, so we went to the furniture store and took a nap… missing you.”

However, after six years together, the former couple decided to go their separate ways. In June 2016, they took to Instagram and posted a text statement to announce their breakup. 

In the statement, they conveyed that their decision to end their romantic relationship was mutual and emphasized their intention to maintain their friendship.

After the breakup, Lovato dated several older men, but those relationships didn’t work out. Now, she’s in a happy relationship with musician Jordan Lutes. They grew closer while working on Demi’s album Holy Fvck and have been happily dating ever since.

Caity Lotz Is Pregnant, Expecting First Baby with Husband Kyle Schmid

Congrats to the married couple!




Caity Lotz Is Pregnant, Expecting First Baby with Husband Kyle Schmid

Congratulations are in order for Caity Lotz and her husband, Kyle Schmid, as they are expecting their first baby together.

Rumors of Lotz’s pregnancy were first initiated after her Instagram post on April 11, 2024. She posted a few pictures of herself with her friend, in which she was donning a red bikini at a beach and seemingly hiding her baby bump.

The pregnancy rumors were eventually met with a positive response. On Saturday, April 20, Lotz and Schmid took to their respective Instagram handles to reveal that they were pregnant with their first child. The married couple had shared four identical pictures.

In one picture, Schmid can be seen holding his wife’s growing baby bump as she sits on his lap. In another, the married duo is holding each other’s stomachs. Similarly, they posted a sonogram photo as the fourth picture of their respective Instagram posts.

Lotz captioned her pregnancy announcement, writing, “Gaining weight for the role of a lifetime.” On the other hand, Schmid wrote a bit lengthy caption, starting with, “Never would have thought the woman of my dreams could have become anymore beautiful.”

“Your glow, your shine, you’re going to be the best mom in the world. I can’t wait to be a proud poppa. What a whirlwind of a year!” he concluded his heartfelt caption along with four hashtags: “mommabear,” “poppabear,” “bigpoppa,” and “highfive.”

Following their pregnancy announcement, Lotz’s Arrowverse co-stars – including Candice Patton, Katherine McNamara, Javicia Leslie, Danielle Panabaker, and more – along with many fans filled the comment section with congratulatory messages.

For instance, actress Olivia Swann wrote, “AHHHHHHH congratulations Caity!! Sending huge love to you and Kyle, incredible news,” with actress Jes Macallan commenting, “So beautiful! Can’t wait to love on this baby. Can our littles go to summer camp together when they get older?!”

A couple of days later, on Wednesday, April 24, Lotz took to her Instagram handle to share another picture of herself flaunting her ever-growing baby bump. Along with the photo, she wrote, “Now that I’m (hopefully) past all the nausea and extreme fatigue, I’m loving being pregnant!”

As mentioned earlier, this is Lotz and Schmid’s first baby. The now-married couple first met each other through a mutual friend. Their first date was a “quick coffee double date,” which they had with their mutual friend and her husband on February 21, 2021.

Lotz and Schmid eventually began dating, and their bond grew stronger as time passed. A little over a year after they started dating, Schmid decided to take his relationship with his then-girlfriend to the next level and proposed to her in May 2022.

On May 7, 2022, Schmid shared some moments from their engagement via Instagram, expressing his love for his then-fiancee. “The sun rises and sets with you. The moon and the stars have never shone so brightly. You are the love of my life,” he captioned.

Likewise, days before the then-engaged duo celebrated their second dating anniversary, they walked down the aisle and shared their wedding vows. Lotz and Schmid married in an intimate ceremony on February 11, 2023.

Speaking a little about their wedding, it was a destination wedding in Cartagena, Colombia, where only close friends and family members were in attendance. The Flash alum later informed her fans about their marriage on Valentine’s Day of 2023.

Lauren Luyendyk Wants 1 More Baby with Arie Luyendyk, Told Husband to Reverse Vasectomy

“Just wait a little.”




Lauren Luyendyk Wants 1 More Baby with Arie Luyendyk, Told Husband to Reverse Vasectomy

Lauren Burnham Luyendyk, also known as Lauren Luyendyk, has spoken her mind on whether she wants to have more children with her husband, Arie Luyendyk Jr., aka Arie Luyendyk.

The answer is that she wants to have one more baby with her partner. Besides, she even told her husband to get her vasectomy reversed. These revelations came during Lauren’s recent Q&A session, which she held over her Instagram handle.

On Monday, April 22, 2024, Lauren hosted an Instagram Q&A session where one of her followers asked her if she felt her family was complete. The Bachelor alum and her husband are currently the proud and blessed parents of three children.

In reply to the fan’s question, Lauren stressed that the question was a hard one as she recently even told her husband to reverse his vasectomy. However, the parents of three sometimes have a hard time with their kids.

She wrote, “This is such a hard question for me… I told Arie to get a vasectomy reversal the other day, but then we have super hard days sometimes with the kids, and then I sort of question it. I don’t know. I think I might want one more, but just wait a little.”

Lauren’s answer left many of her followers to believe that the reality TV star and her longtime husband might welcome one more baby in the near future. However, it is currently unknown when the married couple will welcome the new addition to their family.

Moreover, Lauren’s husband, Arie, also has to reverse his vasectomy before they plan on having more kids. In this regard, Arie had a few things to say during his recent Q&A session on Instagram in late March 2024.

Firstly, when one Instagram user asked The Bachelor alum if his life at the moment was how he envisioned his future when he started his journey as the Bachelor, Arie replied that he never thought he would be this lucky.

His reply read, “I never thought in a million years I would be this lucky. Honestly, this is better than the future I had carved out in my mind. Lauren is everything and has also given me so much more to love with our three kids. I am forever grateful.”

Right after answering that fan question, he answered another fan question regarding his vasectomy and if he would ever consider reversing the procedure. He tagged his wife’s Instagram handle and wrote, “Whatcha think Lauren?!”

Coming over to Lauren and Arie’s relationship, she has been married to her husband since January 12, 2019. They met on The Bachelor season 22 and engaged on the show itself. Shortly after their wedding, on May 29, 2019, they welcomed their first child, daughter Alessi.

In 2020, Lauren suffered a miscarriage; however, later, in December 2020, the married duo announced they were expecting their second child. Later, it was revealed that they were expecting twins. On June 12, 2021, they welcomed daughter Senna and son Lux.

Some months after the arrival of their twin children, Luyendyk and his wife jointly decided that Luyendyk would have a vasectomy. On February 1, 2022, the reality TV star uploaded a YouTube video revealing he got a vasectomy.

Tara Yummy Apology Resurfaces amid Old Tweet Condoning Sexual Assault

“It was insensitive and stupid.”




Tara Yummy Apology Resurfaces amid Old Tweet Condoning Sexual Assault

Tara Yummy, also known online as Ms. Yummy and TaraYummy, has recently become one of the rising internet personalities. This has resulted in people digging deep to learn more about her.

When that was happening, netizens stumbled upon her old tweet where she seemingly condoned sexual assault, r–e to be exact. The old tweet was made on June 24, 2013, and seemed to be a Tumblr post, whose screenshot was later posted on Twitter.

Yummy’s old tweet first showed a Tumblr post from a user named The Person Below, and their post read, “The person below is thirsty as [explicit].” Likewise, Yummy’s post was below that, and it read, “It’s not r–e if you like it.”

The screenshot of the TikTok star’s old tweet was shared on Monday, April 22, 2024, by the Instagram handle of THETEATALK. When the post was shared, it garnered a mixed reaction from the netizens, with many criticizing her words.

For instance, one netizen commented, “Nahh, at 12/13, I still wasn’t thinking this that’s crazy.” Another added, “So glad my parents kept me away from social media; at 13, I felt uncomfortable when someone even mentioned the word, makes me think she posted it for validation.”

On the other hand, some Instagram users defended Yummy, stating that she wasn’t even a teenager when she made that post and that she might not have understood what she meant. For instance, one Instagram user wrote, “She was not even a teenager.”

“Y’all are so chronically online to be canceling someone who was 12 years old saying this,” another user commented, with another adding, “She tweeted this in a time period where things like this were often said/used. People will just find anything to try to ‘cancel’ someone.”

When Yummy’s old tweet resurfaced, netizens also found the influencer’s apology regarding her past actions. On the same day that THETEATALK shared Yummy’s old tweet, they also posted her apology, which she made on July 23, 2020.

In her apology, Yummy wrote, “Hi guys! Just quickly addressing a tweet from 2013. I was 12, but I’m fully aware that it was insensitive and stupid! I was way too invested in the internet, and it was a post on tumblr that I absolutely did NOT even understand the meaning behind.”

The internet star continued in another thread, “I don’t condone any sort of sexual assault in ANY manner and I’m so sorry and apologize to anyone who saw this tweet and was offended by it.”

“I take complete responsibility and never want to use my platform for anything other than connecting with you guys and being a positive influence,” Yummy concluded her statement.

When THETEATALK posted Yummy’s apology, the post also garnered mixed reactions from the netizens. While many were still defending Yummy and stating she wasn’t a teenager, some were still keen on criticizing her actions.

“When I was 12 I knew better, so she has no excuse,” “How do you not know what that means at 12 tho?” and “People who still bring up things that people have said from 9+ years ago really need to get a life” were some of the fan comments under the post.

As of this writing, Yummy hasn’t talked about her old tweet, for which she already apologized, resurfacing once again all over the internet. It might be possible that she wouldn’t respond this time around as she already did in 2020.
