We wonder what 18-year-old Demi Lovato's parents think about the recent rumor the young singer has been hooking up with the much older actor (and father) Ryan Phillippe, 36? According to E! News, the two have been secretly seeing each other for a couple of months now. A source claims Lovato and Phillippe started dating each other casually at first, but things got hot and heavy pretty fast.
But reportedly their hush-hush romance has cooled off a little. According to the source, the birth of Phillippe's third child, Kai, seems to have calmed the flames of passion between Lovato and Phillippe.

Phillippe was even there with his ex, Alexis Knapp, when she had the baby a few weeks ago despite the rumors that Phillippe might not be the father.
"It was really hot and heavy for a while," said the source of the secret relationship. Apparently Lovato didn't know for sure that Phillippe was going to be a father again "until it basically happened. It kind of threw her for a loop." Demi Lovato And Trace Cyrus' Twitter Breakup
Well, sure. She's only 18. Call us crazy, but we think she should be dating guys who don't yet have kids and an ex-wife. Though we definitely won't fault her for dating Phillippe (he's totally hot!), it isn't surprising that when his ex-girlfriend gave birth, Lovato cooled relationship.
It could be the baby, or it could be the fact that Lovato is a pretty busy young woman herself. She may not have kids yet, but she has spent the past few weeks promoting her new single, "Skyscraper." Is Ryan Phillippe Really The Father Of Ex Alexis Knapp's Child?
