It's been four months since Demi Lovato suffered a near-fatal overdose, but the singer is very much still in the process of rebuilding her life.
These days, Lovato is out of rehab, but the hard work of recovery has only just begun.
Of course, Demi is a one-woman media empire, so in addition to focusing on her sobriety, she has to cope with the demands of a staff of dozens and a fan base in the tens of millions.
Both groups are concerned about the singer's well-being, of course.
But both groups are also likely to overstep their bounds in dangerous and damaging ways.
As you may recall, one of Demi's backup dancers, Dani Vitale, was widely blamed for her overdose due to allegations that Vitale regularly procured drugs for Lovato.
Vitale received death threats from fans, and she eventually spoke out in her own defense.
Unfortunately, in doing so, she may have sealed her own fate.
"It was completely unfair to fire Dani, she's one of the few who really cares about demi's health and has been helping her for 3 years, she's surrounded by people who only care about her money and she does not see it," a fan recently wrote on both Twitter and Facebook.
"The demi team is so rotten and she does not realize it," the post continued.
"Needs a total change, mainly from dancers pretending to be friends."
Remarkably, Demi herself clapped back and informed the fan that Vitale was fired because she broke the number one rule of Team Demi: do not talk about Team Demi.
"You have no idea what you're talking about," Demi commented.
"True friends don't do interviews about you when you OD."
Yes, according to Demi, Vitale was fired not for supplying drugs ... but for being a narc.
Hey, tough decisions need to be made when you're playing the game at Demi's level.
Fortunately, Lovato isn't lacking for companionship these days, thanks to her new relationship with boyfriend Henri Levy.
Levy has struggled with addiction himself, but insiders say these days he's providing Demi with exactly the kind of support that she needs.
"Demi wants to be around people who are like-minded and Henri is good energy for her," a source tells E! News.
"They spend a huge amount of time together but Demi is not focused on dating. Demi is very focused on her health."
"She has been following all of the steps and guidelines put in place by her specialists," the insider adds.
Apparently, Lovato's new regimen includes "working out with a trainer several days per week and eating right."
We wish her all the best as she continues down the difficult path of recovery.
And we hope she continues to cut shady figures out of her life as she sees fit.
