As the news spread that Demi Lovato’s estranged father Patrick passed away over the weekend, the X Factor judge had plenty of shoulders to lean on, including the strapping upper arms of former flame / forever friend Wilmer Valderrama.

“[Wilmer] is her rock and he has been in constant contact with her, both by text and in person, during this difficult time and he’ll continue to be her shoulder to cry on,” a source tells Hollywood Life about their unique relationship.

For weeks, we’ve been saying these two crazy kids should get back together. First the pair were spotted out furniture shopping; then they were caught sending cryptic romantic messages to one another. Clearly they’re into each other, right?

But whether or not Wilmi will ever be an item again, it’s good to hear Wilmer’s there to support his girl through thick and thin. The former That '70s Show star has always been one of Demi’s biggest cheerleaders, tweeting supportive messages whenever his superstar does good.

Also in Demi’s corner is former X Factor co-host Khloe Kardashian, current host Mario Lopez, and fellow judge Simon Cowell, not to mention the millions of Lovatics flooding the Twitterverse with positive energy.

One of Demi’s most recent tweets thanked her fans for their love, saying, “I feel so humbled to have had so much support from my fans, friends, family and complete strangers.. God bless you all, thank you so much.”

Dems, we’re always there for you but totally get it if you’d rather lean on Wilmer’s rock hard abs for awhile. We know it make us feel better.
