"Wilmer and Demi have always shared a strong bond, and Wilmer knows Demi better than anyone," a source told ET in July. "He's seen her highs and lows, and has always been there for her, and he knows she needs him now more than ever."
"After their 2016 breakup, Demi and Wilmer remained friends, and he knows Demi was going through a lot, but he didn't know it was this bad," the source added. "Right now, Wilmer is just trying to be there for Demi and be a solid friend to her."
"She just didn't look good at all," De La Garza recalled. "She was in bad shape, but I said to her, 'Demi, I'm here, I love you.' And at that point, she said back to me, 'I love you too.' From that point on, I never allowed myself to ever think that things weren't going to be OK ... we just didn't know for two days if she was going to make it or not."
