Demi Lovato has completed another stay in rehab, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
A source close to the “Dancing With the Devil” singer, who uses those pronouns after coming out as non-binary, told Page Six that they returned to Utah for treatment but are now back home and “feel good”.
Reps for Lovato did not return Page Six’s request for comment.
Lovato’s return to rehab came after they told fans it would no longer work for them to be “sober in California” – drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana.
“I no longer support my ‘California sober’ ways,” the 29-year-old artist shared on their Instagram Story in early December. “Sober sober is the only way to be.”
A few weeks later, Lovato debuted with a shaved head on a picture that eagle-eyed fans noticed appeared to have been taken at the rehab site, to represent a “new start.”
Speculation surrounding Lovato’s whereabouts provided further impetus when their older sister, Dallas Lovato, shared a video of the two reunite for Christmas at TikTok with their younger sister, Madison De La Garza.
“When you get exactly what you wanted for Christmas … your sister,” Dallas, 33, wrote over the video, adding a red heart emoji.
“I fooled you, sorry,” Demi said as they hugged a tear-soaked Madison, 20.
Despite suffering an almost fatal overdose in 2018, the “I Love Me” artist explained why they did not want to be completely sober after their recovery and subsequent rehabilitation stays.
“I called [my recovery case manager, Charles Cook] and was like, ‘There’s something wrong. I live one side of my life completely legalizing and this other side following a program that tells me that if I slide up, I’ll die, ” they shared with Glamor magazine.
The “Confident” singer described their overdose in their YouTube documentary series, and honestly described fans, what grip their addiction had on them, from using meth and heroin to now having to receive injections to prevent getting high.
“At least for a few years, it may not hurt me,” she said of Vivitrol injections, which stop the effects of opioids.
