Demi Lovato Rehab Update: Friend’s Death Sparked Breakdown
There have been many reports as to why Disney star Demi Lovato entered rehab at the end of last month. Was it because of cutting? Maybe cocaine? Perhaps alcohol? The truth is, it’s probably a combination of all three things but another report has just surfaced claiming that Demi’s breaking point came after the death of a friend.
Last year, Demi reportedly attended a house party in Texas where she snorted cocaine and bonded with new friend David Osborn – an aspiring musician. The 18-year-old starlet became quite close with David and was obviously heartbroken when she learned of his death in late July. Osborn passed away after flying off a tube in the water and drowning.
As sources close to Demi have confirmed, the young actress has been suffering physical and emotional issues for quite some time but the death of her friend contributed significantly to her recent downwards spiral and subsequent visit to rehab.
Between David’s death and her recent breakup with Joe Jonas, Demi simply couldn’t handle the emotional stress of her personal life. Add touring with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend (Ashley Greene) to the mix and you have an 18-year-old girl who simply broke down from a combination of heartbreak and addiction.
Hopefully Demi will find the help she needs in rehab and comes out a stronger and better person in the end.
