Say it ain't so! Another celebrity couple has officially called it quits and we don't think our poor hearts can take much more of this. Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama have just announced that, after six years together, they've decided to split. "After almost six loving and wonderful years together, we have decided to end our relationship," the former couple wrote in a joint statement that they posted on Instagram.

"This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends," the sad statement continued. "We will always be supportive of one another. Thank you to everyone who has offered us kindness and support over the years. With only love, Wilmer & Demi."

For the record, that wasn't just six years of "loving and wonderful" moments for the no-longer-pair, but six years of teasing us with engagement ring fake-outs, lovey-dovey Instagram snapshots, and cryptic quotes that had us totally convinced that Valderrama and Lovato were heading down the aisle. We already had Demi's wedding dress picked out for crying out loud!

#Dilmer may be no more, but these were the moments that had us swearing the former couple were previously on the verge of tying the knot.

1. "If he asked tomorrow, I'd say yes."
Almost a year ago, Lovato gushed over her beau during a radio interview, letting the world know that Valderrama was indeed the one. "I am very, very in love with him," she said of the That '70s Show alum. "I think we'll probably wait a little bit longer, but if he asked tomorrow, I'd say yes." Cue our breaking hearts...

2. Demi's Shabby Chic Wedding Dreams
In an interview last year with Complex magazine, Lovato revealed that she basically had her dream wedding Pinterest board all ready and waiting for when her former sweetheart popped the question. "I love shabby chic [weddings]... I don't know if it would be in a barn, but I think I'd definitely want an outdoor wedding, with lights hanging in the trees," she confessed. "With Wilmer, I'm the happiest that I've ever been, so that's all that matters to me." Ugh! Stop, we can't take it!

3. That Hint, Hint on Ellen
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lovato shut down those swirling engagement rumors by flashing her bling-less hand to the audience. "I don't see a ring," the pop star said. "I wouldn't mind if I saw one!" Lovato coyly added. Hint, hint... "There's a time for everything," the singer continued. "We've been together this long and obviously I'm not going anywhere and vice versa." Oh, how times have changed...

4. Iggy Azalea Claims Maid-of-Honor Status
Even Demi's BFF Iggy Azalea wanted these two to get hitched! "She needs to get engaged. Wilmer needs to get on it," the "Fancy" artist told Entertainment Weekly. "He's slippin.' Have you seen Demi? She's bomb. I don't know what he's waiting for?" Neither did we!

5. Demi's Sassy Snapchat
Recently, the "Stone Cold" singer attended a slew of press event with a new diamond dazzler on her finger. Umm, was that an engagement ring we spotted? Nope! Lovato later took a snap of the massive sparkly accessory in question, writing "RELAX" on the photo to quiet the questions.

Well, looks like we won't be getting a Dilmer wedding to fawn over. But maybe we'll get a good breakup album out of this, at least?
