Watch: Demi Lovato’s Mom Gives Update On Singer’s Health Post Overdose
Many music lovers were thrown into a state of worry three months back when news that “Sorry Not Sorry” hitmaker, Demi Lovato had overdosed on drugs.
Thankfully, she was able to receive quick medical treatment and she subsequently checked into rehab. Her mom Dianna De La Garza in a recent appearance on the latest episode of the Conversations with Maria Menounos podcast, has given an update on the singer’s health.
She revealed that her 26-year-old daughter has been sober for 90 days.
“She has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her, because addiction, being a disease, it is work,” Dianna says to host Maria Menounos on the episode. “It’s very hard, it’s not easy, and there are no shortcuts.”
When asked what caused Demi to relapse in July, leading to her hospitalization, Dianna says she “can’t really say for sure,” explaining,
“I really don’t know.”
“It can be any number of reasons,” she continues, “We lost five close members of our family in one year while I was writing the book, my grandfather, my grandmother, two uncles. We lost five people just in a span of a few months. My grandmother and my grandfather were older and they were in a nursing home, but my uncles, that was kind of a shock. And then I lost a grandmother on my father’s side and so even through all of that, losing all of those people, she didn’t relapse. So, it’s hard to say. You couldn’t say because we lost five people in our family that caused a relapse.”
A number of prominent celebrities have died from overdose with Mac Miller being the most recent case following his tragic death in October. Famous stars like Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse are also examples of some music celebrities whose lives were cut short from overdose.
