On Aug 5, 2018, Lovato broke her silence on social media and wrote a lengthy post about her drug use as well as her commitment to her fans. "I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet," she wrote.
For the uninitiated, Demi Lovato is a young American actress and singer who has recorded CDs and starred on both TV shows and in movies. She is best known for her lead role on the US TV show 'Sonny With A Chance' as well as starring in the Disney Camp Rock movie series.
Relationship with Nick
Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas' relationship was one of the most-talked-about events in the West. But they have always denied it and maintained the stance that they're nothing but friends.
Earlier in an interview, Nick revealed that Demi is one of the first people he speaks to regarding everything. He said, "I internalise things, so we have this rule that we never want to hear about it in a tweet or something. She'd read me the riot act, so she's the third person I call - my dad, Joe, then Demi."
And Demi too opened up in another interview with 'Glamour' magazine about Nick. She said, "There's an element of trust that you don't find with people nowadays. He's family. I am the person who tells him things he doesn't want to hear like I told him to be more vulnerable with his music."
Over the years, they have always supported each other and social media is a proof of how best of friends they're. But when Nick began to be spotted with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, it was unusual to see Lovato unfollow Nick on Instagram.
The drug addiction and rehab
Lovato entered rehab in July after suffering from a nearly fatal overdose and experiencing severe health complications while she was hospitalised. In her final post on social media before entering treatment, she wrote that she needs 'time to focus on my sobriety and road to recovery.'
Reports were rife since then that Nick's relationship with Priyanka was the reason for Lovato's addiction which ended her in rehab. The night before her alleged overdose, the singer and her friends enjoyed a night out in West Hollywood where she was taking shots with her friends.
The big fat wedding that excluded 'the best friend'
Demi Lovato was recently out of rehab and reports suggests that she is doing just great. Meanwhile, the singer is now checking out every thing that she missed during the days at rehab and that included Nick Jonas wedding with Priyanka Chopra.
Recently, according to the US Magazine, Lovato was deeply upset when she learned that was not invited to the starry wedding. A source informed the magazine that it broke her heart. When Lovato was admitted into the hospital after a drug overdose, Nick had even tweeted that they loved her and were praying that she gets well very soon. But why did he not consider to send at least a wedding invite to his 'third most trusted person'. Demi has been Nick's long-time tourmate and they have collaborated on several songs.
Well, the fans of Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato's friendship are heartbroken.
It seems now that Lovato has moved on. Reportedly, Lovato is rumored to be dating designer Hnery Levy since Lovato completed treatment. The couple was spotted in early November having a dinner in Los Angeles. It was Lovato's first public appearance since exiting rehab, and the two have since been going steady since then burying their past, according to media in the West.
