Rumors were swirling this week that Demi Lovato was in rehab because of her recent Tweet and the fact that she did not attend the Grammys.
The rep for the 19-year-old states, “She’s not in rehab. She was not supposed to present at the Grammys.”
So what was her Tweet that raised eyebrows on the teen who did enter a treatment facility in November 2010 until January 2011 to treat personal issues?
The Skyscraper singer wrote, “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!”
A source explained to MTV news, “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. 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.”
Demi has become a voice to young people. Last December she spoke to patients where she received treatment – the Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center.
She said, “To be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier … Life is beautiful … you are worthy of it. Please say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self-harm, mood disorders and substance abuse.”
