The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker was admitted into a rehabilitation facility last week after spending a week in Cedars-Sinai hospital recovering from a suspected overdose, and it has now been claimed the star – who previously went to rehab in 2010 – wants a program that will push her to the limits to make sure she changes her ways.
A source said: ‘This is not her first rodeo. She doesn’t want to feel like things are being handed to her. For Demi, this is a strength test.’
Because while most concertgoers at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles noticed the singer flubbed the lyrics to her latest hit “Sober” during her July 22 set—one that took place less than 48 hours before the pop star would be rushed to an L.A. hospital suffering from an apparent overdose—a few dedicated attendees paid heed to the verse that she missed. “We all laughed because she laughed too,” spectator Fernanda Martinez told People, but they also listened: “The words she left out that night were, ‘I’m sorry that I’m here again. I promise I’ll get help.'”
Those in her immediate vicinity wondered aloud about the potential significance, Martinez noted, but as Lovato brushed it off, admitting to fans, “F–k, I forgot the words,” they did too. Said Martinez, “We said we were probably overthinking it.”
Demi lost herself. Her sobriety became a downward spiral. Addiction is a disease and she let it get out of control. Having her level of fame can be unbearable. Demi was so strong for so long, but she caved.
‘She set high expectations for herself and it got to be too much. Her decision-making process was severely impaired. But she’s only human.’
Recently, Demi was said to have jetted off to Chicago to meet with a therapist who specializes in addiction, which was set up for her through her
current treatment center.
It was claimed the star would be spending ‘several months’ in rehab as part of an ‘extensive’ program, but sources said she was already doing ‘much better’.
They said: ‘She will be in rehab for several months and is doing an extensive program to ensure she gets the help she needs.
