Demi Lovato told Bliss: ‘If you’re around [drugs and alcohol] long enough, you’ll get dragged into those things. So I don’t put myself in those situations.’ Demi talked about her substance abuse struggles on-stage in Chicago Saturday while her on-again boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama was diving head first into the party scene during a guy’s weekend away in Vegas.
Demi has a special connection to Chicago, she told the crowd during the show, because that’s where she got sober during a 2010 rehab stay. But instead of cheering her on, like he did at the Wango Tango concert in LA just weeks before, Wilmer decided to party it up in Vegas.
On Saturday night, he was spotted at the Hooters-esque Blondie’s Sports Bar & Grill inside the Miracle Mile Shops. After ordering a bucket of Corona beers, Wilmer watched the UFC 161 fight and happily posed for pics with the restaurant’s ‘cheerleaders,’ waitresses in skimpy cheerleading outfits, reports Radar.
Later that night, he continued the party at Marquee nightclub inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel. There, he was spotted, slightly bleary-eyed, chatting up a stunning blonde. The next day, he mingled with even more fair-haired hotties at the Planet Hollywood Pleasure pool, where he shared a table stocked with drinks with Joe Jonas and girls lucky enough to be invited to their table.
Following the Miss USA Pageant Wilmer and Joe continued partying at Hakkasan Las Vegas inside MGM Hotel & Casino where they were sipping cocktails and dancing into the night to the heart-pounding beats of Bambi’s electronic tunes.
But was he thinking of Demi the whole time? On Saturday, Wilmer posted an instagram pic captioned ‘To whom it may concern.’ with a graphic of the number ‘143,’ commonly used in texting to mean ‘I love you.’ Demi fans quickly flooded his page with comments suggesting the post was meant for her.
