Wilmer is a Spanish-born American actor who has earned quite a reputation when it comes to dating celebrities. He has been involved with singers and actresses that, included Mandy Moore, Demi Lovato, and a few others.
Wilmer Valderrama’s dating history is a bit unique from most of the big names in the world of fame. Do you have any idea why? Well, till now, all the women he has dated are way younger than him. Valderrama’s current partner, who you will find out more about in this article, has a difference of 11 years from the actor. The age gap in all his relationships has often left us wondering whether he prefers dating women much younger than him or if it is just fate.
Here is a quick timeline of the women Valderrama has been involved with so far.
|Mandy Moore||2000 – 2002|
|Demi Lovato||2010 – 2016|
|Amanda Pacheco||2019 – Present|
1. Mandy Moore
When Mandy Moore was just 15, she met Wilmer, aged 21, at a teen magazine photoshoot, after which they started dating in 2000.
Sadly the relationship only lasted for a couple of years, but to make matters worse, Valderrama did something which took Mandy in total shock. Apparently, in 2006 the actor appeared on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ and said that he took away Moore’s virginity and also made some very inappropriate comments regarding their relationship whilst they were dating.
Later in 2018, Mandy Moore appeared on the same show and clarified that whatever her ex Wilmer said was nothing but a lie. Mandy called the actor and confronted him, where he was caught in his own words as he had lied in the first place.
Whatever happened, the two got over it and now have become very good friends.
2. Lindsay Lohan
One of the shortest relationships in Wilmer Valderrama’s dating history involves the actor dating Lindsay Lohan, where the couple could not even stay together for a year since they started dating in 2004. Although Wilmer was Lindsay’s first high-profile boyfriend, the age gap was quite worrying as she was only 18, and he was 24.
Since both were quite young, rich, and famous, they concentrated more on attending parties and gathering fame rather than paying attention to each other. Unfortunately, within a few months, the couple broke up, but till now, the actual reason for the duo splitting up is still unknown. But it has been rumored that Wilmer called it quits with Lohan to date Ashlee Simpson.
3. Ashlee Simpson
The relationship between Ashlee Simpson and Wilmer lasted just over a year in 2005, which was the talk of the town.
The reason is, everyone guessed that Simpson’s song ‘Boyfriend’ was about Wilmer and his ex Lindsay, especially the line ‘I didn’t steal your boyfriend’ which referred to the rumors regarding Ashlee stealing Wilmer from Lindsay.
To clear everyone’s doubts, Ashlee Simpson did admit that her song was related to her being accused of stealing Vaderrema from Logan. Nonetheless, the relationship did not last between the two.
4. Demi Lovato
The longest relationship so far in Wilmer Vederrena’s dating history is known to be with the singer Demi Lovato, although they dated on and off and took a break in 2012. The two first met when Demi was shooting a PSA for Voto Latino in 2010, which was done in Wilmer’s house. Lovato was only 17 when she first saw him while he was 29, it was love at first sight for her, but Valderrama was not interested because Demi was so young. When Demi turned 18, they started dating regardless of the 12-year age gap.
In November 2010, Demi entered a treatment facility to deal with her mental health and eating disorder issues, which caused the relationship between her and Wilmer to slow down. However, after she was done with her treatment and recovered fully, she met Wilmer at his house, where the couple was seen to be kissing in front of the entrance.
The two finally made their first public appearance together in February 2013 when they attended the Topshop Topman LA Opening Party. The following year Demi’s single “I Really Don’t Care.” was released, and she included Wilmer in her video, where he made a short appearance. After this, Lovato began to share posts and pictures of the two on social media, letting people know how much they were in love with one another.
In 2015 the pair went to St. Bart’s for a vacation to spend quality time together, where they were spotted sharing a kiss in the ocean. The following year in January the couple celebrated their sixth anniversary of being together, and Demi shared a picture of them throughout their relationship.
Unfortunately, it all came to an end in June 2016 when the duo publicly announced that they had split up. Demi stated that they were still in love but thought it was for the best just to remain friends. No matter what, the 6 years long relationship made Demi say that even if she does date other people, she will always have Wilmer in her mind.
Although the singer acted strong in public after the breakup, her eating disorder was back due to depression, which also led her to take a drug overdose and be rushed to hospital, where Wilmer was by her side and visited her often while she was being treated.
The two are now very good friends and have learned to leave the past behind to move on with their lives.
5. Minka Kelly
