Demi Lovato’s Sister Provides a Much-Needed Update on Singer’s Condition
It’s been 60 days since Demi Lovato entered rehab following her scary July 2018 overdose. That’s two whole months! The “Sober” singer’s been spotted out and about since that fateful day, but, apart from mom Dianna De La Garza‘s September update, how much do we really know about her progress?
Well, thankfully, D.Lo’s sister, Madison De La Garza, provided a much-needed update on the Disney Channel alum’s condition. “Demi’s doing… she’s doing really well,” the 16-year-old former Desperate Housewives actress revealed on Millennial Hollywood. “She’s working really hard on her sobriety and we’re all so incredibly proud of her.”
“It’s been crazy for our family,” MDLG added. “It’s been a lot. Umm, but we’ve been through a lot together and every single time, I mean, if you read my mom’s book, you would know. Every time we go through something, we always come out on the other side a hundred times stronger than before. And so we’ve just been, umm, we’ve been so thankful for everything. For the little things.”
This is one of the only times Maddie’s mentioned her sister’s condition. Another time happened on Demi’s 26th birthday, August 20. Maddie wrote:
“today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, demi’s team, and everyone across the world who offered their support – without all of these people i wouldn’t have my big sister anymore. i’ve been thinking about how i wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when i’m trying to sleep, because those are the things i’m thankful for today. they seem so small, but those little things make up my sister – not a singer, not a celebrity, and definitely not what she’s been described as in the media – she’s a daughter, a friend, and my big sister… and i am so, so thankful that i can tell her happy birthday. #happybirthdaydemi ❤️”
