Demi Lovato’s in rehab and dealing with enough right now without a family drama, but that’s exactly what she’s getting. The 18-year-old’s family is mad that her absentee father has weighed in on the Disney star’s troubles, and they’re telling him to shut his mouth. In fact, Disney’s telling him to be quiet too!
Radar Online quoted Patrick Lovato, from whom Demi has been estranged for some time, as saying that her physical and emotional breakdown was “inevitable” after she signed with Disney.
The talented teen’s lawyer told the New York Post, “No one speaks for Demi except for her designated representatives. Unfortunately, several people have taken it upon themselves to speak out — both on and off the record — about a situation they know nothing about.”
Disney has also warned Patrick to stop talking, though he claims that Radar misquoted him. He says Demi won’t talk to him, either.
Poor Demi hopefully she can get herself straightened out without having to rehash this family drama as well.
