Demi Lovato describes dating older guys as 'sick' years after her relationship with Wilmer Valderrama ended. 

"Due of daddy issues, I dated older men and males. I'm in a great relationship currently "The 31-year-old told Howard Stern on SiriusXM Monday. 

"I'm confident that my daddy issues aren't inside me anymore, and I think there are signs. Basically, my partner is my age. The past makes me think, "That's gross." 

Jordan Lutes, 32, known as "Jutes." is dating the "Give Your Heart a Break" singer. 

Lovato did not name exes in the interview. She met ex boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, 43, at 17 and he was 29. They declared their love once she turned 18 despite their roughly 13-year age disparity. The pair dated 6 years.  

"For me, I was a teenager," she said Stern, according Entertainment Weekly. I think that's gross. Between 50 to 60, you're good. Even 30 and 40 aren't gross.  

But I think you shouldn't be with someone so elderly during your formative years. It's harmful and unhealthy." 

Demi Lovato and Jordan Lutes Lovato met Jutes in the studio for her 2022 album "Holy Fvck." 

"He came in to write on one of my sessions, and I was in the studio and was immediately attracted to him," she told Stern. "I texted my friends on the side, 'He's so hot!'"
