Demi Lovato and boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama had some sad news to share with fans and animal lovers today. Their adorable little dog, Buddy, has died, and the singer took to Twitter to share the devastating news with followers. "Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday," Lovato writes. "He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle so with that, together we our staying strong."
According to TMZ, Lovoto's small pup was attacked by a coyote who wandered into the backyard of her L.A. home, and the singer has canceled her Thursday appearance on Good Morning America to allow herself some much-needed time to mourn. Lovato has been open about her struggles with depression and bipolar disorder in the past, and has credited longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama many times with helping her stay healthy and confident — making us think the pair is well-suited to supporting each other through tough times. Our thoughts are with them both as they mourn the dog Lovato called their "tiniest little nightingale, Buddy."
