Demi Lovato Says She Couldn't Go More Than 30 To 60 Minutes Without Cocaine

Dec 10, 2013 02:15 PM


We can always count on Demi Lovato to be candid about her personal life, but when she went into the details of her drug use with Access Hollywood, we were completely shocked!

The 21-year-old star, who wrote her memoir Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year, chatted with Kit Hoover from the set of The X Factor on Monday and revealed that even after she had a sober coach she was using drugs all the time.

“I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside,” she admitted. Demi completed a three-month stint in rehab in November 2010, so it appears as though all of this happened before she sought treatment at an inpatient facility.

When it came to her cocaine addiction, she told the show:

    “Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well.”

As far as her battle with alcoholism, she admits that it was just as bad:

    I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car ... and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at…I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it. When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone. I’ve really never talked about this stuff before… I don’t know if I should be sharing this. I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God… that is alcoholic behavior. [It’s] no longer, I’m young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I’m one of those people…I gotta get my s*** together.'"

Demi also chatted about her eating disorder, and she revealed that it started at a very early age:

    “It was always there, but then I just acted on it at around 8 or 9 years old. I started overeating, compulsively overeating. I would bake cookies and then eat the whole pan. I went from doing that to being unhappy with my body. I went to just completely starving myself and that turned into throwing up and starving myself and it was just this crazy battle going on inside of me. It got really difficult [and] I would throw up and it would just be blood and it was something that I realized if I don’t stop this, I am going to die.”

Demi was also joined by her mom Dianna, who took some of the blame for the starlet's issues. “I suspected [she was using drugs]. It’s like any other parent, when you see things, when you see signs you don’t want to believe that’s what actually going on. So when they’re telling you that’s not what is going on… you want too badly to believe them and I think for a long time I was in denial,” she told Kit.

Demi Lovato Weighs In On Pal Miley Cyrus: "I Didn't Twerk, I Just Went To Rehab"

Nov 21, 2013 09:05 AM

Demi Lovato appeared on Katie Couric's talk show on Tuesday, and the singer/actress held nothing back when she chatted about fellow former Disney darling Miley Cyrus.

When comparing herself to Cyrus, Lovato she's she thinks she has had an easier time growing up in the spotlight because she went to rehab. We can't tell if this is a jealous dig or if Lovato just let the wrong words slip from her mouth, but she told Couric:

    "I think that the world needs to get over the fact that she was Hannah Montana when she was 16. I guess my transition was a little easier because I went straight to rehab. I didn't twerk, I just went to rehab."

She added:

    "I think she knows what she's doing. A lot of artists take that route of shock value, and that's totally fine and that's great. But I think she has such an incredible voice that's overshadowed by some of the things that she's doing. It's her journey. She's having fun. She's being who she is. I'll always love her. She's been one of my friends since I was 14. But everyone is on their different journeys right now and she's doing that and she's having fun ... so power to her."

Lovato was in rehab from October 2010 to January 2011 for physical and emotional issues after she was accused of attacking a backup singer and there were reports of her using drugs and drinking. She later revealed that she suffered from bulimia and bipolar disorder, and she has also been candid about her struggles with self-harm and substance abuse.

Australian DJ Ruby Rose Claims She "Slept" With Demi Lovato

Oct 7, 2013 03:30 PM


Is Demi Lovato is bisexual?! Adorable Australian DJ Ruby Rose shocked fans on Sunday when she announced via Twitter that she had slept with the "Heart Attack" singer in the past.

On Sunday, the DJ from down unda sparked some major media attention when she wrote a mysterious tweet: 'Think i'll take a few days off social media while @ddlovato's friend attack me for being a 'scorned ex-lover.'"

The 27-year-old Aussie also added fuel to the girl-on-girl fire when she claimed on Instagram that she was, "the one person demi has slept with that didn't sell naked photos of her."

Hmm Ruby, not sure if you should brag about how great it isn't that you haven't sold photos of Demi when you (possibly) outed her via social media!

Given that the X Factor judge is pretty much an open book, talking candidly about her addictions, past relationships and boyfriends, we'd be pretty surprised if this were true. But ya never know, girls just wanna have fun!

Ruby has subsequently deleted the eyebrow-raising posts from her account after getting exorbitant attention from Demi's die-hard fans.

'Listen, im in no way shocked or offended by the shade im getting from people who have simply cropped my reply to what actually started this," Ruby wrote. "However I in no way initiated this, nor did I say something that wasnt already written in the ridiculous post. One sided replies dont cut it. However, love and peace to everyone. It is what is it."

Demi has yet to comment on the alleged tryst.

Demi Lovato Reveals She Was Suicidal At Age 7

Jul 1, 2013 11:30 AM

demicover230.jpg We have to hand it to her for being so honest about her struggles!

Demi Lovato recently opened up to Cosmopolitan magazine about her childhood struggles growing up in the spotlight, and although she's been vocal about her bulimia and cutting issues, the X-Factor judge has never revealed she contemplated harming herself until now.

Landing her first gig singing the Barney & Friends theme song at age 7, the "Skyscraper" singer admitted she might not have been ready for fame at such a young age.

    "At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who's ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child's heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was 7," she told the mag.

"I've talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I've never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out," she added.

The former Disney star still has personal secrets she's not ready to share, though!

Speaking about her song "Warrior", which covers betrayal and lost innocence, the 20-year-old confessed that she lets her lyrics talk for her.

    "My family knows what it's about. When I'm ready to open up that subject with the outside world, then I'll be free to talk about it. But right now, it's kind of one of those things where the lyrics speak for me. It's all in the song," she explained.

We admire your strength, Demi!

Demi Lovato's Estranged Father Patrick Dies

Jun 23, 2013 08:20 AM


Demi Lovato's rep has confirmed that the 20-year-old singer's biological father Patrick Lovato has died.

Demi has yet to release a statement on his passing, and it's no secret that the two had a rocky relationship. Patrick was the subject of her 2011 song, "For the Love of a Daughter," and when Demi went to rehab in 2010, her estranged father spoke to the media trying to get through to her.

In 2009 Demi told the New York Daily News, "The last time I talked to him was two years ago. You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do ... I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much."

In October of 2011 Patrick spoke to Radar and revealed that he was ailing from cancer and still trying to reach his daughter. “It is not like I want anything from her, all I want is her love,” he told the site.

Demi's mom Dianna De La Garza tweeted, "Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers. Y'all are amazing!" while Demi's older sister, Dallas, 25, wrote, "Rest in peace daddy I love you."
