Valderrama: Demi is so courageous
Demi Lovato was reduced to tears when boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama made a surprise appearance at her fundraiser on Wednesday night.
The former That 70s Show actor surprised his girlfriend as she hosted the inaugural Lovato Scholarship Benefit fundraiser on Wednesday night.
Despite Demi telling the audience earlier in the evening that her “heart is broken” that her beau couldn’t attend her big night, Wilmer reduced his girlfriend to tears when he jetted in from Canada especially for the event.
Making his way onto the stage, much to the amazement of Demi, Wilmer toted a giant cake which he presented to the 22-year-old star.
As Demi struggled to control her emotions, Wilmer opened up about his love for the singer in a speech to the audience.
“I just got off a plane from Toronto and there are a million things to say,” Wilmer said. “It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a role model like her. It’s been a long time to see somebody that has the courage to be who she wants to be, and if you can take anything from tonight, walk away understanding that from today life will get better. God bless you guys.”
Following Wilmer’s touching tribute to his girlfriend, the couple walked off stage hand-in-hand, with the excited audience chanting ‘Dilmer’ in honour of the pair.
Demi’s benefit was to raise funds for the Lovato Treatment Scholarship. The multi-talented singer and actress set up the scholarship to “cover expenses for individuals struggling with mental health and/or addiction issues”.
Famous faces who attended Demi’s fundraiser included Khloe Kardashian and Joe Jonas.
