Over the last ten years, Wilmer Valderrama has unfortunately dated many of the young actresses and singers in Hollywood: Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore, Minka Kelly, Avril Lavigne, Mila Kunis, Ashlee Simpson, and most recently, Demi Lovato. Now, he’s reportedly dating Minka Kelly again. Several tabloids have published exclusive reports about the reunited couple’s dinner date this week. Before we get into those details — there are so many — let’s remember how Minka and Wilmer got together the first time.

The pair was first spotted together making out in a club in Hollywood in March 2012. Minka had just broken up with Derek Jeter, and Wilmer was in an off-again, on-again relationship with Demi Lovato (who was 19 at the time). In April 2012, Minka and Wilmer went on vacation to Australia together, which prompted Demi to tweet lyrics from Taylor Swift’s “Dear John.” Eventually, things fizzled and Wilmer got back together with Demi, whom he continued to date until this past June. Minka was most recently linked to … Sean Penn.

On Wednesday, Minka and Wilmer finally reunited over dinner in Hollywood. Here’s everything we know about that.
