Demi Lovato and her ex, Wilmer Valderrama, are exchanging loving, flirtatious tweets. Does this mean they're going to get back together? Or are they already dating again?
On August 20, the new X Factor judge turned the big 2-0, and scads of her fellow celebrities wished her a happy birthday via Twitter. Ironically, one of those celebrity well-wishers was her ex, Wilmer Valderrama.
On August 21, Valderrama sent his former lady-love a special, bilingual tweet that was practically brimming with love and admiration.
"Feliz CumpleaÃ±os to my angel @ddlovato," Wilmer wrote. "U continue 2 make me proud. U are the hero this generation it's been waiting 4! With & by you always."
As the folks at Hollywood Life observed, "that's a pretty intense birthday wish for an ex." Even more interestingly, La Lovato's reply was equally intense.
"@WValderrama You are amazing...," Demi gushed back. "Thank you so much love. You mean the world to me."
For some reason, Demi later deleted the sweet tweet. Why? Did she feel she'd said too much? Was she afraid she'd transferred the heart she seems to be wearing on her sleeve to her Twitter account for all of cyberspace to see? Are the tweets written proof that Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama are back together? It certainly looks that way. On the other hand, if they are, once again, a couple, why all the subterfuge? Why don't they just admit it? Are they afraid they'll be ridiculed for being an on again/off again couple. Good grief, guys. This is Hollywood. You'll be welcomed to the club. Maybe they just want some intimate time to savor the secret all by themselves--without the prying eyes of the paps and the inquiring minds of the public. Or not. Maybe they're just super intense BFFs.
Oh well, time will tell. Stay tuned.
