The Disney darling pulled out of the final dates of the Jonas Brothers’ South American tour last month (Oct10) and checked into rehab, citing “emotional and physical” issues.
But the New York Post has reported that Lovato is hoping love with Valderrama, 30, will help her through her dark days.
Unfortunately, the story is fiction.
Valderrama’s publicist tells Celebuzz.com, “It is false.”
Valderrama has had a string of famous girlfriends, including rehab regular Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ashlee Simpson.
He reportedly met teenager Lovato in March (10), while they were filming a public service announcement for Chilean earthquake relief.
Lovato split from pop star Joe Jonas earlier this year (10).
