Demi Lovato: 'I'll always love Wilmer Valderrama'

Demi Lovato will always love her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, who she gushes about in her new documentary.

The singer recalls the first time she met the actor and talks about how important he still is in her life, despite the fact they split last year (16).

"I met him on January 11, 2010," Demi says in new YouTube documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated. "It was at his house during a PSA (public service announcement) for the census. When I laid eyes on him for the first time (I thought), 'I love this man and I have to have him, but I was only 17."

They started dating a few months later, with Lovato recalling, "I think it was love at first sight and I don't really believe in that, but I believed that it happened. We connected on a level that I have never connected with anybody before. He was just my rock, my everything."

And she insists she has never fallen out of love - even since their break-up.

"We decided together that we're just probably better as friends," she adds. "The sparks never faded but there are issues that I haven't conquered yet that I know I won't conquer if I'm relying on somebody else to take care of the loneliness. I just wasn't ready and there was so much of my life that I hadn't explored yet.

"I think my heart is always with Wilmer. I think it was with Wilmer, I think that it is with Wilmer, I think that it will be. You don't share six years with somebody and not give them a piece of your heart and vice versa. I'm pretty sure I am not going to meet anybody that compares to him but I'm trying to keep an open heart and an open mind when it comes to that."
