Demi Lovato has not been shy about praising her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, and she continues to speak very highly of her significant other. Especially when it comes to the pair's relationship during the star's difficult time in her life.

Lovato spoke to Sydney's Kyle And Jackie O show on KIIS 106.5 FM on Tuesday, and the 22-year-old who has been dating the 35-year-old That '70s Show star on and off since 2010, said her personal issues certainly affected their relationship, but Wilmer was always supportive.

"There were some moments when it was off and on when I was struggling with my issues," she confessed. "What he would do is he wouldn't enable me so he'd say, 'I can't be around if you're not going to get your stuff together.'"

Demi continued, "It made me fight for it. He's a very, very good guy."

Three years ago, Lovato began her journey to overcoming her struggle with substance abuse, an eating disorder and alcoholism, but most of all "an addiction that made her a manipulator and a liar."

The 22-year-old "Really Don't Care" singer is currently in Australia for her DEMI World Tour, and took the Wilmer-gushing to social media while away. She Instagrammed a sweet flashback photo of herself and her 35-year-old boyfriend Friday.

Demi is clearly smitten in the sweet kissy-face selfie (taken 4.5 years ago, according to her caption) and, "yet all this time later...I still cry when I leave him for tour," she writes.

"...and I still get butterflies just thinking about him," she added. "You're magical Wilmer... I love and miss you..."
