Almost everything I know about rehab I’ve learned from repeat viewings of the Sandra Bullock movie 28 Days. So when it was reported that Demi Lovato had checked into a rehab facility after her suspected drug overdose last month, I pictured Demi sucking lots of suckers, killing it during a group sing-a-long of “Lean On Me,” and throwing her bags into a taxi at the end of 28 days. That’s not what’s going to happen. Well, who knows about the suckers and sing-a-long, but she definitely won’t be staying for under a month.
If you were hoping to catch a Demi Lovato performance in Mexico or South America this fall, a pesky little thing known as rehab is getting in the way of that. Demi’s finally out of the hospital after her alleged overdose, heading to rehab, and as you may have expected, she’s putting the kibosh on the rest of her tour.
Page Six says Demi, who already postponed the South American dates in April to the fall due to “production issues,” will not be performing while she continues her battle against addiction. As y’all know, she was found unconscious in her bed at the end of July and was hospitalized for two weeks after paramedics had to administer Narcan. She immediately canceled an Atlantic City Show, just a month after she bailed on London shows on account of “vocal cord issue and illness.”
As soon as Demi got out of the hospital, she skipped town on a private jet to rehab outside of California at an undisclosed location but is known for being one of the best spots to get clean, which I’m sure just means they threaten to play the Selena Gomez discography anytime Demi tries to break sobriety. Demi took to social media the other day to give an update:
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery … I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side.”
Honestly, cucumber water and journaling all day in rehab sounds way better than getting dragged for not even knowing where the fuck it is you’re singing, so Demi may have won out on this move.
During the two weeks since Demi Lovato went to the hospital with a suspected drug overdose, many random sources have piped up with their thoughts and theories about what happened. Finally, Demi has spoken for herself. She posted a statement to Instagram thanking everyone who has helped her over these past two weeks.
Demi Lovato has now spent ten days in the hospital following a suspected drug overdose. During that time, sources were saying that Demi’s family and team were pushing for her to exit the hospital and head straight to rehab, because of the overdose (duh), but also because she had apparently not been sober for quite a while. On Wednesday, TMZ reported that the rehab conversation had gotten an A&E’s Intervention-level of tense, and that many on her team were threatening to quit unless she agreed to check in for treatment.
It was starting to sound like maybe Demi was acting out the beginning lyrics of an Amy Winehouse song, and refusing to go. But sources tell TMZ that Demi has agreed to go to rehab.
As it turns out, Wilmer Valderrama’s hospital visits to see Demi Lovato haven’t been a one or two time thing. According to People, Demi Lovato is still in the hospital after her suspected drug overdose last week, and she’s reportedly got her own Wilmer Nightingale constantly at her bedside.
There’s more good news about Demi Lovato. As previously reported, she doing well and is awake and responsive. And it looks as if Demi, who was hospitalized two days ago for an apparent drug overdose, will likely be heading to rehab as soon as she gets out of the hospital. That’s what her family is currently making plans for. According to Entertainment Tonight, Demi’s family is actively looking for a rehab facility she can check into right away.
