Pop star and ex-XFactor judge, Demi Lovato and her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama are mourning the loss of their pet dog, Buddy. The loss of a beloved companion animal is always tough, but when the loss is a tragic accident, it’s even worse. Demi tweeted this message to fans on Tuesday.
We are absolutely heartbroken to be writing this but Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday. 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. We have incredible people around us and so much love and support which is holding us up in this time of need. Buddy was loved by so many people and as small as he was, he made a huge impact in our lives. He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. We ask you that you please respect our privacy while we take this time to grieve and remember the magical moments we spent with our little angel. We will never forget our baby boy Buddy and his gentle loving spirit will live on in our hearts forever. RIP my tiniest little nightingale, Buddy…
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be…”
It’s been confirmed that a coyote wandered into Demi’s backyard and killed poor Buddy. TMZ was more graphic, stating that the animal was “ripped to pieces” by the Coyote, and was found by Demi. I know the description is hyperbolic, but when a coyote gets hold of a small animal, I’m assuming the aftermath is not pretty.
Look at how cute Buddy was. #RipBuddy. Demi cancelled a scheduled appearance on GMA this morning. Pets are like family, so I don’t blame her.
