X Factor judge and Heart Attack singer Demi Lovato just recently found out she has a secret half sister–and she has only just spoken to her for the very first time.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Demi made the announcement during an interview with an internet radio station based on Long Island.
“I think my fans would be excited to learn that I just got to know..I have an older sister that I’ve never known my whole life. She’s in her thirties. She’s my half-sister, but I talked to her for the first time in my life when I turned 20,” the “Give Your Heart A Break” singer gushed. I asked her, “Why haven’t you ever contacted me?” and she said, “I never wanted you to think that I ever wanted anything from you, so I’ve just kind of been waiting to see you wanted a relationship.” Demi said, “I thought that was so incredible!”
Lovato already has two sisters–Dallas and Madison. She didn’t share the name of her newly discovered half sister.
Can you imagine the wide range of emotions one must experience when suddenly learning they’ve had a sibling throughout their whole life but had no idea he or she existed? Lots of questions must be floating through Demi’s mind, and hopefully one of her parents will sit down and have a very honest conversation with her.
Demi Lovato is likely returning to the next season of The X Factor before too long. The banter between her and Simon Cowell is a fan favorite. She really gives back practically everything Simon dishes out to her–both on the air and behind the scenes.
Congrats to Demi on the news of her newly discovered sister. Hopefully, the two can develop a relationship of their own, away from the spotlight that scrutinized Demi almost constantly.
