Are Demi Lovato's party buddies Tana Mongeau and Machine Gun Kelly a 'bad influence' for her after her overdose?
After the overdose, it took Demi Lovato a year and a half to return to the spotlight
Demi Lovato's struggle with substance abuse is not new. In July 2018, the singer suffered an overdose and spent several days in the hospital before going into treatment. She even spoke about her "journey with addiction" on Instagram saying, "What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time."
It took her a year and a half to return to the spotlight after which she performed at the 2020 Grammys and also sung the national anthem at the Super Bowl. Her ups and downs through sobriety have been quite a cause of concern for her fans and sadly, there seems to be a bit of bad news, again, on that front.
Lovato was partying in Miami last week. Guess who she was with? Tana Mongeau! Yes, the news seems to have surfaced in Perez Hilton's video blog. Internet personality Mongeau is known for a series of reality shows for MTV on YouTube and has now been hired to star in a new TV show alongside Jake Paul. Well, she is not a good influence on Lovato as she herself has been allegedly quite vocal about the use of recreational drugs.
If that was not enough, gossip mills say Lovato was recently seen with Machine Gun Kelly at Soho House West Hollywood, a members-only club in Los Angeles, at 2 am. The two were photographed leaving in separate cars but sources say that MGK’s Aston Martin convertible was seen following Lovato’s SUV toward the pop star’s condo. Are the two dating?
Well, it is not good news either as MGK has glamorized substance abuse and rapped about it in several of his songs.
Surviving an overdose should have been a wake-up call for the 'Cool for the Summer' singer. After her history of drug addiction, don't you think Lovato should surround herself with better friends? Or perhaps, Machine Gun Kelly is clean now, who knows?
Nevertheless, Lovato has also signed on to host a talk show on an upcoming short-form mobile video platform. Titled 'Pillow Talk With Demi Lovato,' the series will see the songstress conduct candid conversations with both expert and celebrity guests.
