Combining business and pleasure? Demi Lovato Jordan Lutes sparked dating speculation after they were spotted on a dinner date — but the duo already have a history.
Lovato and Lutes were photographed together leaving an Italian restaurant in New York City in August 2022. This outing is just a few days after a source revealed that Lovato and Lutes were photographed holding hands as they left an Italian restaurant in New York City. Us Weekly that the Texas native was “really happy” in a “healthy relationship” with a fellow musician.
Lutes, for his own part, spoke out about how he was able to work with Lovato in the past on her upcoming album.
“Substance by @ddlovato out now!! one of my fav songs i’ve ever worked on. when i got asked to pull up and write for this session i remember thinking wtf am i supposed to do in a demi lovato session?” he wrote via Instagram in July 2022, alongside a clip from the music video. “Only to show up and realize she was making one of the hardest rock projects i’ve ever heard. obviously a crazy milestone for me but beyond that i feel so blessed to be a part of something i’m such a big fan of. cheers to the whole gang 🖤.”
The “Dancing With the Devil” singer responded in the comments section, writing, “Thank you sooo much.. you killed the session (SESSIONS) and I’m so grateful to have gotten to work w you, here’s to many more!! let’s gooooo!! (Cya!!).”
Lovato’s rumored connection with Lutes comes two years after her whirlwind romance with Max Ehrich. The couple began dating in 2020, and they were engaged later that year.
“@maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you,” she wrote via Instagram in July 2020. “It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.. I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never make me feel like I have to be any other than myself. You make me want to be the best possible version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!!”
UseIt was confirmed that the couple called it quits two years later. Lovato later wrote a documentary about their relationship. Dancing With the Devil.
“What happened? “I think I rushed to do something I thought was right. I realized as time went on that I didn’t actually know the person that I was engaged to,” she explained in March 2021. “All the people that were like, ‘Oh they rushed into it,’ or ‘It’s not gonna last,’ I’m like, ‘You proved them right.’ We were only together four to five months, and like, honestly, it was false advertising.”
She added: “There’s so much more of me that I have yet to explore, and one of the good things about this experience is that I’ve used this time to look within. I’m also too queer to marry a man in my life right now. I’m not willing to, like, put a label on it right this second. I think I will get there, but there’s a lot of things I have to do for myself first.”
Ahead of her album release, Lovato also made headlines after fans questioned if her song “29” was meant to slam her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. “What the f—k’s consent? / Numbers told you not to / but that didn’t stop you,” the lyrics read, which seemingly took a dig at the age difference between Lovato and Valderrama.
