Even though they broke up in 2016, Valderrama has proven just how much he cares about Lovato, by visiting her on more than one occasion following her hospitalization. And according to E! News, “Lovato is resting and getting better, while her whole family and Valderrama are there to support her through her recovery.”
TMZ also claims that Valderrama “stayed with her for about 5 hours” during one of his visits, proving that they’ve remained close since breaking up.
