“The X Factor” U.S. judge Demi Lovato may have rekindled her on-again/off-again romance with actor Wilmer Valderrama, but on the Fox musical TV series “Glee,” she is having a lesbian relationship with Naya Rivera.
In an interview with MTV News at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Aug. 25, 2013, Rivera (who plays lesbian Santana Lopez on “Glee”) confirmed rumors that Lovato’s Dani character will be Santana’s love interest on “Glee.” (In real life, Rivera is dating hip-hop star Big Sean.) Rivera told MTV News about her lesbian storyline with Lovato: “She’s playing my love interest, so I’m very, very excited about that. We get to sing a song together. We’re bringing her to the dark side!”
As previously reported, Lovato is making a series of guest appearances on the show’s fifth season, which premieres on Sept. 26, 2013. Lovato will work around her “X Factor” schedule to be on “Glee.”
Lovato tweeted on Aug. 26, 2013: “”Wayyyyy too excited to be starting @GLEE this week!!!!!!! Asjfkdjshdk. I can’t believe I’m going back to acting but the best part about it is that I get to act/sing with some of my really great friends.”
Even though Lovato will be pretending to be in a lesbian romance on “Glee,” has she had one in real life? The website Celebuzz/Celebslam published a teaser photo from a series of pictures that allegedly show Lovato naked. The photos are being shopped to tabloids. The seller is claiming that the woman in the nude photos is Lovato and that she had a lesbian affair.
According to Celebslam, the person selling the photo claims: “We have nude/sexual photos of Demi Lovato and was wondering if you would like to buy them … The girl in the middle row, last pic is our friend and is a girl Demi had a fling with for some time on and off. After Demi got with Wilmer our friend called it off because she didn’t like being played, she sent me these pictures that Demi sent her as a joke and I have no use for them … There are about 20 total, not all have indication they are of her except some have her tattoos in ones you cannot see the face.”
Meanwhile, E! News reported that Lovato skipped the 2013 MTV VMAs in New York City to hang out with Valderrama, his family and a group of friends at Disneyland and California Adventure. They were seen eating giant turkey legs during this outing. (Lovato’s “Heart Attack” was nominated for Best Female Video at the 2013 MTV VMAs, but Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” won the award.)
Even though Valderrama (who is 34) and Lovato (who is 21) have been seen on romantic dates with each other this year, Lovato is refusing to say interviews if she and Valderrama are back together. (They have been in an on-again. off-again couple since 2010.) When she is asked in interviews about her love life, Lovato politely declines to discuss it and says she wants to keep her love life private.
Lovato briefly dated her “Camp Rock” co-star Joe Jonas in 2010. And although Lovato and One Direction’s Niall Horan have admitted they have crushes on each other, Horan and Lovato both insist that they are just “good friends.”
Valderrama (who is best known for co-starring in the sitcom “That ’70s Show”) has a reputation for dating numerous Hollywood starlets, including Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore, Ashlee Simpson and Minka Kelly.
On Aug. 20, 2013 (Lovato’s 21st birthday), Valderrama tweeted to Lovato, “I’ve been so proud of the strength & commitment you’ve gained 4 life, keep inspiring us all! Happy birthday my @ddlovato! With & by u always.”
As previously reported, Lovato spent her birthday in Kenya doing charity work with the organizations Me to We and Free the Children. It has not been reported if Valderrama was with Lovato in Kenya on her birthday.
