New details have emerged following Demi and Wilmer’s split

When Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama announced their split over the weekend, the sound of a million hearts could be heard breaking all over the world.

After six years together, die-hard Delmer fans were certain a wedding was on the horizon, but it looks like it just wasn't meant to be.

Having told fans that she and That 70s Show actor were still the best of friends, Demi then insisted that they would always be supportive of each other.

But since the news broke, sources close to the popular former couple have offered further details into the split, with one insider revealing that the two stars were more like siblings than partners.

"It had turned into more of a big brother-little sister kind of relationship," a source told E! News. "The romance wasn't what it used to be."

Explaining that the 36-year-old actor played an incredibly important role in the former Disney star's life, an insider revealed: "Wilmer is still very protective of her. He did a lot for her."

"There was a lot of love there," the source insisted. "They love each other but aren't in love anymore. They are really great friends which they'll continue to be but the romance sort of died."

Sounds a lot like what happened to poor ol' Tayvin, right?
