"He never takes credit for my sobriety, but I guarantee I wouldn't be alive without him today," the 23-year-old singer said.

"We're in control of what we're able to post online, and we're very open about our relationship," Lovato said. 

"As I get more serious in my life, I'm more proud."

Lovato entered rehab in 2010 after allegedly punching a dancer on her tour whom she thought revealed Lovato's suspected drug use.

"Afterwards, Demi felt awful about her behavior and realized she needed to take personal responsibility for it," a family source told People at the time.

"Because of this, and because of the battles Demi has fought throughout her life, both she and her family realized she needed to take steps to get help immediately."

Lovato confirmed last year that she was diagnosed with depression and bi-polar disease.
