Demi Lovato celebrated her 30th birthday on Saturday by making it Instagram official with her new boyfriend, Jute$.
The “Skin of My Teeth” singer and Jute$ (real name: Jordan Lutes) posed for a series of Instagram photos in honor of Lovato’s birthday. Jute$ is a Canadian artist who collaborated with Lovato on a track on her new album.
In an Instagram post, Jute$ announced that he was “literally squealing with joy” over his relationship with Lovato.
“Happy birthday baby. you’re a 30 year old minx and I’m the luckiest chump in the world to call you mine. Making you laugh has become my new obsession because smiling literally cures my depression (there’s a song lyric in there somewhere). I’m so proud of you for not only surviving everything you’ve been through, but coming out on top and becoming your healthiest happiest self,” Jute$ captioned the series of photos, which show the couple in a variety of scenes, ranging from roasting marshmallows over the stove to a ride at a theme park in a poncho. “And that’s all baby… I’m here to support you and tell silly jokes to your dad when needed. you’re more than your music, more than your voice, more than a pretty face. you’re everything. In love.”
In the comments, Lovato responded to Jute$’s post by calling him “the best friend in the world” in all caps.
“I’m so thankful to be able to call you mine because I’ve never laughed like this in my life, I’ve never smiled so much and my heart is constantly so full of love for you,” Lovato replied. “This post, this caption… how are you for real? I love you baby… so much.”
The pop star also took to her own Instagram page to show off her new relationship. In an Instagram story, she shared a photo of herself and Jute$ posing for a bathroom mirror selfie. Pink-haired Jute$, wearing a furry black Kangol hat, had his arm around Lovato, who smiled for the camera.
“Bday bitch with her love,” Lovato captioned the shot.
In a solo post, Lovato took a selfie in the bathroom mirror, adding a stylish pair of black sunglasses to her outfit.
“Bday bitch,” he captioned the shot.
Jute$ made a birthday breakfast of scrambled eggs for the duo.
Rumors have been circulating for some time that the duo were dating. Earlier this month, the pair were spotted holding hands outside celebrity hotspot Lavo in New York, Yahoo Entertainment previously reported. Jute$ had joined Lovato for a trip to New York as she promoted her latest album, Holy Fvck, which was released on Friday.
In 2020, Lovato was briefly engaged Young and Restless actor Max Erich. In the People’s Choice Awards that year, Lovato joked about the relationship, saying, “Then COVID hit, and everything shut down, so I did what everyone else did. I went into lockdown mode and got engaged.”
