In celebrity news, “Confident” singer Demi Lovato is igniting the New Year with an old flame. After the 24-year-old pop star called it quits with UFC Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold, she revisited her relationship with MMA fighter Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos. According to UsMagazine.comcelebrity couple Vasconcelos and Lovato initially got together back in July, but after Lovato’s date with Rockhold, the hookup was cut short. At some point Lovato and Rockhold threw in the towel making way for Vasconcelos to swoop back in before the New Year. Vasconcelos shared a pic on Instagram showing the pair celebrating New Year’s Eve together. Lovato hasn’t made reference to her new(ish) relationship, but if things are heating up like they appear to be, he’ll make a charismatic debut on her social media in no time. To further complicate things, Lovato ended a six-year relationship with Wilmer Valderrama last June, but it looks like she’s enjoying playing the field.
