It honestly feels like Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama have been together forever, so it's kind of hard to believe it when they say stuff about how Demi's parents didn't approve of them at the start of their relationship. But the actor has just revealed something even more shocking. During an interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Wilmer said that he didn't really want to date her at first!
They started out as platonic friends but it was "not very long" before they were a couple.
“We’ve been best friends for five years. I think she told you a little of bit of that because I saw your guys’ interview. I wanted nothing to do with her!” he said.
Wilmer also joked that he told his now-girlfriend, “‘Stay away from me!’ If you know Demi, she wanted this one! She checkmated!”

Still, he says that he initially kept their relationship kind of a secret because he didn't want to detract from her music career.
“I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that it was a big transitional time for her and her career, and I just felt like it was important that it should be more about her and the next chapter of her music and all the things she was doing — because she was evolving as an artist.”
Even if it took a while, we're just glad that they're public now. They're soul mates!
