    Would you want your 18-year old daughter, fresh out of rehab, to date a divorced 36-year old man with three kids—including a two-week old daughter?

    Maybe not, but troubled Disney starlet Demi Lovato has been quietly dating Reese Witherspoon’s ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, for the past couple of months, according to a report from E! News.

    “It was really hot and heavy for a while,” a source close to the couple tells E!

    But Lovato cooled off the relationship after learning that Phillippe was going to be a father—again—with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp.

    Lovato didn’t know for sure that Phillippe was expecting a new bundle of joy “until it basically happened. It kind of threw her for a loop,” said the source.

    Even though the May-October relationship has been put on the back burner for the time being, due to Phillippe’s diaper duties and Lovato’s busy schedule promoting her new single, “Skyscraper,” the pair hasn’t entirely called it quits.

    Lovato was previously involved with tween heartthrob Joe Jonas. After their break-up, Lovato entered rehab in Novemeber 2010 to be treated for “physical and emotional issues.”

    Meanwhile, a pal of Phillippe insists that he never hooked up with Lovato and that the actor is “totally single.”
