Demi Lovato’s Lessons in Life
Demi Lovato has gone through some major ups and downs, but while her career is soaring, she's still focusing on her sobriety. In fact, the singer even resides in a sober living facility.
According to TMZ, the 'X Factor' judge has been living in a Los Angeles area recovery home for over a year. Different facilities have varying rules in place, but sober housing usually offers a supervised living environment that enforces structure, accountability and responsibility.
The news comes after the recent rumor that Lovato is back in rehab. The 20-year-old was fingered as the subject of a blind item from Blind Gossip, which said that the reason behind the celeb's Twitter hiatus was her return to treatment.
In 2010, the 'Give Your Heart a Break' singer admitted that she suffered from bipolar disorder and went to rehab for issues with anorexia, bulimia and cutting. A source tells TMZ that Lovato moved into the sober living facility shortly after her inpatient rehab stint, despite owning a home in L.A.
Demi has been public about her struggles to help other young people know they are not alone - if it's eating disorder's, drug abuse or working too much. Demi is choosing to live healthy including taking some time out of the dating scene to no longer feel like a "crazy or insecure girlfriend". Read her full Cosmo UK interview.
While on hiatus from 'X Factor,' Lovato is refocusing on her music career, and is getting ready to release a new single soon. She also just won a 2013 People's Choice Award for Favorite Celebrity Judge, beating out 'The Voice's' Adam Levine, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.
