Demi Lovato news update! The 18-year-old actress turned singer is opening up about her stint in rehab for emotional and eating disorders in the September issue of Elle Magazine. The young star, best known for her Disney show Sonny with a Chance, has recently risen in the pop world with her hit “Skyscraper.”
Lovato told the magazine, “I was completely out of line all summer. Just the worst attitudeÂ—totally ungrateful. When you punch someone [backup dancer Alex Welch on a flight] on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, ‘I’m sorry.'” Shortly after this incident, Demi Lovato news broke that she had checked herself into rehab. The rumors flew about what caused the breakdown but Demi has gone on record to say that her troubles were due to the eating disorder she was battling. Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez were once best friends, Disney stars attached at the hip, but the two haven’t been seen together lately. Could her past behavior have caused a rift in the friendship?
The “Skyscraper” singer was on tour with the Jonas Brothers when the plane fight occurred, leading many to think that maybe the meltdown was caused by Joe Jonas. Demi sets the record straight, saying that there was no guy involved.
Though her interview is mature and honest, Demi Lovato has been seen out at night clubs and has been hanging out with an older crowd of celebrities. Is this young teen queen trying to buck her wholesome image that Selena Gomez seems to be embracing? Indeed, the photos for Elle show a grown up and much edgier Demi Lovato.
