Demi Lovato’s new boyfriend is an LA-based model named Austin Wilson. Fans were unaware that the two were even dating until Demi posted a photo on Instagram last night showing the pair cuddling for a selfie in front of a mirror.
Demi posted the black and white picture with the caption “my [heart emoji]”. Austin later followed that with a post of his own to Instagram where the couple shared another tender moment.
Austin, who grew up in Santa Monica, California, was born May 25, 1994. He graduated from Santa Monica High school in 2011, he is a model and a keen skateboarder.
The size of his body of work as a model is currently unknown, but he has posted many pictures on Instagram that appear to be of a modeling nature.
It is unknown exactly how the pair met each other, but it is believed that they share a similar circle of friends as they both had a mutual friend in Thomas Trussell III, who tragically died in October after a battle with drug addiction.
Austin posted this picture of himself and Trussell (also a friend of Lovato’s) after he died:
He is also allegedly friends with Sam Smith, DJ Khalid and Blackbear (Matthew Tyler Musto).
According to a post of his mother’s, he has been sober for over a year. She also says she is proud and grateful of her son and calls him a man of integrity.
