Less than a month ago, there was a rumor that Demi Lovato was being wooed by John Mayer. Taylor Swift’s least favorite couple never came to be. At the time, Demi was reportedly with 32-year-old UFC fighter Luke Rockhold, whose name name sounds like Barney Rubble’s Grindr username. Demi was seen being couple-y with Luke last week at an L.A. Rams game, but since she’s a millennial, their relationship can’t be upgraded to “confirmed” until they’re seen looking couple-y on social media. Demi did that yesterday.
Demi posted a picture on Instagram last night of her working the classic “Yes this is my man” hand-on-thigh pose.
Luke posted the same photo, an action which I believe legally binds them together as famous boyfriend and girlfriend. The “last night” Demi is referring to was the UFC 205 fight at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. Demi and Luke were joined at said fight by Nick Jonas, who E! News says got in on Duke’s official social media debut by Snapchatting their date.
As for how serious Demi and Luke are, a source told E! last week that Demi wants to keep it casual right now. First he has to pass the ultimate loyalty test: how does he react during one of Demi’s messy Twitter rants? If he DMs her a message asking her to get off Twitter, he’s GONE. But if he joins in with tweets about people not being able to handle “his truth” or replying to haters with “delete your account“, he’s a keeper.
Here’s a bit more of Demi and Luke making sure the paps get enough good angles of their held-hands at UFC 205 on Saturday night.
