Despite the initial jitters, their connection didn’t transition into romance overnight. During her interview with People, the Heart Attack singer said, “He was just so focused on the music, so we were friends for a while and then told each other how we felt.” This gradual progression from friends to romantic partners meant a lot to Demi, as she said, “I’ve dealt with that in the past of people having different motives and it’s just such a let down,” she added, “So I think when you’re able to build that friendship with someone, the trust is there that you don’t really always get when you first start dating somebody. Dating can be scary.” 

Demi and Jutes officially became a couple in August 2022, and sources close to them confirmed that their relationship was not only happy but also remarkably healthy. Demi expressed their joy in another interview on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up, saying, “I’m super happy, and he’s my best friend.”

In addition to discussing their relationship, Demi talked about their upcoming album, REVAMPED. The singer said to People, “With REVAMPED, I wanted to pay homage to the songs that resonated the most with fans and played a big role in my career by breathing an exciting new life into them.” They further added, “Creating this project has been incredibly fun and allowed me to express my passion for rock music in a new way, and I feel so much closer to my older music because of it. I can’t wait for everyone to hear more!”

The album is set to be released on September 15, and fans have been eagerly awaiting its launch.
