Demi Lovato Update: Sources Deny Drugs, Raise Questions Over Deceased Friend

by at . Comments

"Demi is not in treatment for drugs. She is there to deal with emotional and physical issues she's been battling her whole life."

These are the words of family friend, shooting down recent rumors that Demi Lovato entered a rehab facility due to a problem with cocaine and alcohol.

So, is there a specific issue that forced this young singer to leave her Sorth American tour and seek help? Possibly, reports Star Magazine

Performing for Thousands

In July, an aspiring musician named David Osborn died in a tubing accident. An insider claims Lovato had grown close to the rocker, who she met at a mutual friend's party in December. Soon after his passing, Demi Tweeted:

"Can't wait to see you again in heaven... Texas isn't the same without you... RIP Dave Osborn."

While it's possible the death of a loved one played a role in Demi's demise - which culminated in a physical confrontation with a backup dancer in Peru - the same source that denies this troubled star used drugs also tells People her downfall was related to a lot more than just one incident.

"This is a girl with emotional problems who has been fighting demons her whole life... She is determined to get better."


Hey Im Heard That Demi Was A Drug Addict And More. I Really Hope That That Is Not True Because I Loved Her On "Sonny With A Chance". She Is A Talented Person I Must Say. But The Only Thing I Don't Get Is That People Keep Putting Brittany And The Others In This When They Have They Own Stories. But Demi Will Get Better. Actually She Has A Video Called Skycraper Out And I Haven't Really Heard It But Im Just Happy She's Getting Back On Her Feet.

I really cant believe on whats happening with Demi I saw it coming with Miley Cyrus because thats just the way it is but i remember her on her days on Barney with Selena Gomez she was just the joyfullest kid but what really bugs me is when someone turns famous its just a matter of time before they turn bad I really do hope she gets better I really do I hope Selena doesn't turn bad but for Miley she is just messed there is probably no way she's going to get better
