Demi Lovato Faces Third Tragic Family Death in Just Three Months

By  | 

Our hearts are seriously aching for Demi Lovato right now. First, she was devastated by the sudden loss of her beloved puppy, Buddy, back in July. Then, two months later, her great-grandfather succumbed to illness and passed away. And now, just on the heels of super-exciting career news, Demi and her family are dealing with another tragic death.

The “Confident” crooner announced that her Uncle Billy sadly died recently on Instagram this morning, but because she was committed to play at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in London last night, she was unfortunately unable to join her family at his funeral today.



She captioned the picture, “This is my uncle Billy. Such a joyful man of God with a warm heart and incredible soul. Today he’s being laid to rest.. Please pray for his wife (my aunt Virginia), my cousins and once again, my world – my mimaw. R.I.P. Billy.. I’m sorry I can’t be there today.. Unfortunately Southwest Airlines doesn’t reach the UK. Haha. I love you.. We all love and miss you so much already.”

While there aren’t many details about the circumstances of Uncle Billy’s death, we know that any loss is tragic. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Lovato family as they deal with this heartbreak. Be sure to leave you well wishes for Demi and her fam in the comments section below!
