Demi Lovato Is Taking Steps To Recovery And Fans Are Showering Her With Love

Demi Lovato is back home after completing 90 days of in-patient treatment for her sobriety. Lovato has been open about her addiction and recovery for years now, and has helped humanize and destigmatize the disease. We know that she’s attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and very, very slowly stepping back into her life.

Lovatics are screaming for her return, so here are the breadcrumbs of what we know about her sobriety, where she’s been spotted around Los Angeles, and who she’s stanning on the gram.

The disease of addiction almost killed her in July.

Her assistant found her unconscious body with blood on her pillow and immediately thought she was dead. She was hospitalized for almost two weeks before she was released for her overdose.

This is the last photo she posted before overdosing.

That same night, we know that she overdosed and was taken to the hospital via ambulance. The 26-year-old eventually posted another photo thanking her fans and discussing her recovery but has since deleted it.

Last week, Demi posted for the first time in over three months urging her fans to get to the polls.

Caption: “I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!???? ???????? now go out and #VOTE!!!!”

Lovato is starting fresh with a new phone number.

Needless to say, 70.5 million followers saw this and immediately DM’ed her. Clearly, she’s drawing personal boundaries from scratch and her fans are here for it.

Case in point:

TMZ has reported that Lovato is splitting her time between home and a sober house, which is quite common for strong addiction recovery facilities. There is no cure for addiction, but strong, clear accountability by professionals with strong support systems by other recovering alcoholics has been proven effective.

Lovato liked Christina Aguilera’s post promoting her Liberation tour.

Then, the Lovatics swarmed in on @xtina’s post. Literally the whole comment feed is full of folks celebrating Lovato’s return to social media.

The internet is thirsty for Lovato content.

It’s easy to be a fan and move on with your life without realizing that Lovato has been going through some serious physical and mental health recovery all along. She may be making a soft re-entry into social media, but she is still very vulnerable.

TMZ has reported that her ex, Valderrama has been a major support for her.

An insider told Us Weekly that, “Demi and Wilmer are still in constant communication,” and that they “speak over the phone pretty much every day and see each other often.” They haven’t been seen publicly yet.

Back in 2015, Lovato said that she “really wouldn’t be alive today without him,” according to the LA Times.

She captioned a photo celebrating her third year of sobriety saying, “He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober… After sharing my ups, putting up with my downs and supporting my recovery… he still never takes credit and I want the world to know how incredible his soul is.”

That said, she was spotted at a Japanese restaurant in Beverly Hills with designer Henry Levy.

A source told People that “Henry has been helping Demi stay on the right path.” You do you, boo.

She’s also been spotted hitting the gym and stopping by an office building.

A different People source added, “He has a bit of a troubled past as well, but is doing well now. He will be great at supporting Demi’s sobriety. He is kind of an eccentric guy, but sweet. Demi won’t be bored with him. He is very creative and passionate about life.”

These are the freshest photos of Demi in months and Lovatics are panicking.

Prepare yourself because what you are about to hear is going to make you very, VERY angry. You’ve been warned.

Some people have already started body shaming the recovering singer.

We’re not going to honor the trolls or the basura they spew by quoting anything here, but we will say that her fan base does not disappoint. Ejemplo: “Demi, the #lovatics love you. You look amazing. Please do not listen to these ignorant, mostly male, haters. God bless you.”

You’ve never looked better, mija.

This is what health looks like. I’ve never stanned harder.

While we don’t have as much Lovato content, at least we have each other. ❤️

“We got dragged together by Demi” ???? It’s true. Her fearlessness, honesty and vulnerability in everything she does is the most compelling thing on the internet. During these dark times, we need Demi now more than ever.

Even though she’s been off social media for months, fans are blowing internet kisses.

We hope the only content she’s consuming is this.

So Demi, if you’re reading, here’s all the mushy content you need.

Raise your hand if you’re one of the Lovatics that are proud of her for prioritizing her health. When Lovato shows up for herself, she shows us all how to do the same.

Your health is all we’re looking at.

It’s hard because we miss you so much, but also know that all this attention is probably not what you need right now. We’re shipping you all the positive energy to keep that healthy glow going.

Some of us are getting tatted to show her support.

Lovato’s last post had said, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

Stay strong, Demi.

Demi, we see you, we’re here for you, y te amos.

Haters? What haters? All we see is love y respecto for this process you’re going through. When you’re ready for the onslaught of love, you know where to go.

Red Bull is bringing us three weeks of Latin music to your living room in the time of Covid. As case spike and people are going back into stay-at-home orders, Red Bull Estado Unidos de Bass is giving you the entertainment you need to make it the most of the quarantine.

Red Bull is bringing the hottest Latin music artists into your home over the course of three weekends.

Red Bull Estado Unidos de Bass is here and over three weekends you will get to see seven jam sessions coming to you from five cities. You can check out some of your favorites performing Dec. 4-5, Dec. 10-12, adn Dec. 18-19. They are performing from the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Austin, New York, and Miami truly highlighting Latinos from across the country. Here is who you can expect to see perform.

Kali Uchis

Kali Uchis is excited to be part of the Red Bull Estados Unidos de Bass because she is here for anything uplifting her people. The Colombian singer is grateful for the kind of creative inspiration she got while in isolation due to Covid and it shows.

“I’m not new to creating in isolation but it was refreshing to tap back into being locked in the house while creating,” Uchis said. She added: “[My fans] can always expect genuine things from me and always elevated from what I did last.”

Kinky

The band is making the most out of the quarantining this year to learn better ways to stay engaged and connected. While they have been locked away, the band members have had a chance to reconnect with themselves and who they are as musicians.

They appreciate being able to go back to the basics and remembering why they got into music in the first place. The band has been mixing the different sounds of Latin music into their own unique sound for 20 years.

Speaking of which, stay tuned for next year. The band is planning something to celebrate their 20th year of making your body move.

Tomasa del Real

The Chilean singer is also known as La Reina de Neoperreo because she is credited with literally creating it. The offshoot of reggaeton, born on social media, is a sound all its own and it has pushed Latin music to expand even more. Tomasa del Real is so grateful for the Internet and its ability to connect people so seamlessly during these times.

“I feel that in these difficult times, we as artists have had to use our imaginations to connect with our fans, thanks to the internet we have many safer alternatives for performing,” Tomasa del Real said. “It’s important to create new ways, we are in a digital era where entertainment has been adapting to what is happening around the world and where we are able to stay present.”

La Doña

La Doña’s vintage look is everything and the San Francisco artist’s vocal power backs up her amazing vibes. The musician considers herself lucky to be included in the same line up with so many influential and important artists.

“I am so excited to be included in this symposium of influential and genre-defying artists. It’s special to me to be able to congregate around “bass” and dance music in a time when we’re are more limited in our ability to engage with dance and el club,” La Doña said. “It’s especially exciting to me, as a Latina native to San Francisco, to have a showcase featuring Bay Area musicians, as this node of music and culture is so often overlooked.”

El Dusty

El Dusty is in it for the fans. The Latin Grammy nominated producer is ready to make the most of the performance via technology. Not only will he get a chance to perform with friends of his, but he will get to know his fans a different way.

“Touring is a huge part of my whole project,” El Dusty said. “Performing live helps me stay in contact with fans around the world but while we are in this battle it is fun getting to know my fans even better and communicating with them is aside then ever over the internet in our livestream chat rooms or over comments.”

Los Rakas

The Panamanian cousins are creating a sound that everyone can dig. As part of the Red Bull de Bass lineup, the cousins want to show their fans what they have been working on and hope to gain some new ones.

Red Bull is a perfect fit for the band by showcasing the best and matching with their own style. Most of all, Los Rakas want to make sure that they show their fans their commitment to being there for them no matter what. Fortunately, they are able to do so with a Covid-safe celebration of Latin music.
