Demi Lovato is 'Not In Rehab'

Rep for the singer/actress tells MTV News she is working with her team on 'her ongoing physical and emotional issues..

Demi Lovato can't seem to escape rumors that she is back in treatment. In the wake of those reports, MTV News has confirmed that she is not.

"She's not in rehab," a rep for Lovato said, adding that any rumors that the singer/actress skipped the Grammy Awards to seek treatment are also untrue. "She was not supposed to present at the Grammys."

Sources close to Lovato shed some more light on what she is up to, after she tweeted last week, "Away on a mind and body cleansing retreat!! This is exciting. Won't be tweeting much this week but I love you my sweet lovatics!"

Demi had a week off between work commitments and made the personal decision to spend the week with the professional support team she assembled to help her with her ongoing physical and emotional issues.

"The trip was previously planned," the source told MTV News, adding that while Lovato is taking some time for herself, "Demi's recovery is an ongoing battle. She understands that there will be ups and downs, but is fully committed to working with her team every single day towards a healthy future."

Lovato entered treatment for a number of personal issues in November 2010, remaining until January 2011. Since leaving, she has focused on her music career, including her 2011 album, Unbroken, which launched her empowering hit single "Skyscraper." She has become a voice for young people struggling with personal issues. In December, Lovato spoke to patients at the Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, where she had received treatment.

"To be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier ... Life is beautiful ... you are worthy of it," Lovato said. "Please say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self-harm, mood disorders and substance abuse."

"She was not supposed to present at the Grammys."

So, she attends rehearsals for award shows she doesn't plan on attending just for fun?

This has been very tiring. Does anyone know when the GYHAB video is coming out...?
talklikelions 16th-Feb-2012 07:08 pm (UTC)
But this is basically saying she's in some sort of facility or something for treatment. So yeah, she pretty much IS in rehab rn.

stop with the bad lying....
talklikelions 16th-Feb-2012 07:17 pm (UTC)
and wat @ them acting like someone going to treatment or rehab can't be planned ahead. Most of the time it is. Not everyone has celebrity pull when shit goes down for a bed to magically be free in a facility. It takes a lot of planning and paperwork to go to a facility. So her "previously planning" for this is a really dumb fucking excuse for her not to be in some sort of rehab.

If she was fully committed to getting healthy, she wouldn't be working with her team at all.

I'm getting really fucking sick of her acting like being in treatment/having problems is something of which to be ashamed, to hide. If she just came out and said that she didn't want to discuss it because it was personal that would be infinitely better, but all this bullshit lying is pathetic and reflects a lot on her hypocrisy.

i'm glad she's doing it, but a week isn't gonna do shit.
x_noisekisses 16th-Feb-2012 07:34 pm (UTC)
this all makes her look so bad. her team is seriously stupid, this could all be fixed so easily.

just be honest ffs.
trainwreck1017 16th-Feb-2012 07:36 pm (UTC)
also it's actually possible that she wasn't supposed to present. a few of the places she got interviewed by have videos of other people they interviewed at the rehearsals, and none of them presented or did anything either. she could have just been there for interviews.

i'm so sick of the back and forth about whether or not she's in rehab. she probably is not because she's a grown ass woman and she has to make the conscious decision to go, and she clearly does not see any problems with her behavior, so why would she? i just think it's fucked up that she continues to lie to her fans about how "happy and healthy" she is. she might be happy, but last i checked, 3 day coke and alcohol benders were far from healthy.

all i'm saying is, if you're gonna piss on my face, don't tell me it's raining. and i hope she's reading this right now. get your shit together, demetria.

kknee13 16th-Feb-2012 08:28 pm (UTC)
So basically.. She's in rehab but not rehab rehab? Okay...
lforluvlforlies 16th-Feb-2012 09:18 pm (UTC)
that's what i got from reading it too, lmao
penguinposey 16th-Feb-2012 08:33 pm (UTC)
I thought this was a good statement? They're saying it's a battle with ups and downs, so clearly they're admitting she's getting some help for a current struggle. I don't think she is in "rehab" but I think they're saying she's getting help from her personal team, which is a good thing!
sparksfly1123 16th-Feb-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
Even if what her team is saying is true no one is going to believe them and it's their own fault for being so deceptive all the time. I just hope she is or will be getting help.
justinesays 16th-Feb-2012 08:38 pm (UTC)
To be fair idt only presenters and nominees get invited to the preshow stuff. Cuz there's always a bunch of Z listers. However I don't believe she isn't in rehab who they trying to fool.
