Are Demi Lovato and Ryan Phillippe Dating?

July 18, 2011

Hmmm. Rumors are swirling that 18-year-old Demi Lovato and 36-year-old Ryan Phillippe are dating. Um, say what? Could this rumor actually be true? Lawd, she is HALF his age!

Demi Lovato Ryan Phillippe

So the rumors claim that these two have been dating for the last couple months. I’d like to know what they possibly could have in common, and what exactly do they talk about?

As we all know, Phillippe and his ex-wife Reese Witherspoon have two kids together, Ava who is 11, and Deacon, who is 7. He dated model Alexis Knapp in 2010, but they split in September of 2010. He moved on and started dating Amanda Seyfried but they had reportedly been on again/off again status for much of this year. In March, Alexis announced that she was pregnant with Ryan’s baby. Are you confused yet? Imagine how an 18-year-old takes all this in…

A source who is in the know about the Phillippe and Lovato pairing told E! News:

“It was really hot and heavy for a while,” says a source close to the casual couple, adding that Lovato didn’t know for sure that Phillippe was going to be a father again “until it basically happened. It kind of threw her for a loop.”

Threw her for a loop? Yeah, that’s quite the eye opener right there. Reports suggest that the two have cooled things down while she has been promoting her new single, ‘Skyscraper’ and he’s been tending to new Daddy obligations.

Come on, Demi is just seven years older than Ryan’s daughter Ava. Yikes. While many will argue that some 18 year olds are quite mature for their age, I say give me a friggin’ break. Demi is no stranger to dating ‘older’ men. She was linked to 31-year-old Wilmer Valderrama late last year (um, she had just turned 18 in August 2010, gross), but they reportedly split before she went into rehab. They would reunite post rehab, but finally split for good this year.

A source close to Phillippe said that there was no romance between he and Lovato and that he is ‘totally single’. I say, Demi…you’re so young and have your whole life ahead of you. Enjoy yourself as a teen! Forget that 30+ crowd!

Come on readers, what do you think? Are they dating or not?

    Yeah, she is a bit young for him. But he seems to go for that isn’t the woman he just had a baby with only 21?
