He also posted a photo to his Instagram Story of himself cuddling up with Lovato's dog Batman.

Wilson is a Los-Angeles based model whose dad is skateboarder George Wilson, one of the Z-Boys of Dogtown who now has a clothing line called Rivi Goods. The 25-year-old and Lovato shared a friend in male model Thomas Trussell III, who passed away in Octobe after a battle with addiction. As a tribute to Trussell, Lovato got a tattoo of the letter "T," which she shared on Instagram, while Wilson posted a photo with Trussell.

"RIP bro I love you so much. I'm so grateful for the times that we had while you were here. You are such a special soul," he wrote. "You had the biggest heart and made everyone feel like a million dollars. I know you're looking down on us now."

Lovato recently went on a few dates with former Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson, though things appeared to have fizzled out when Johnson asked actress Keke Palmer on a date on live television.


In addition to sharing her new relationship on Instagram on Tuesday, Lovato also posted a series of videos on her Instagram Story of herself on the set of Will & Grace. In August, Entertainment Weekly reported that the 27-year-old will appear in three episodes of the show as Jenny, a "guarded" woman who comes into Will's (Eric McCormack) life in an unexpected way. Lovato's episodes will air sometime in 2020.
