Demi Lovato is 'resting and getting better' with ex-Wilmer Valderrama by her side: Reports
Demi has been surrounded by her family members as well as her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, who has been spending a lot of time with her
Demi Lovato has a lot of strong prayers and wishes come her way ever since it was reported that the singer had been hospitalized over a case of a drug overdose last week. And Demi is finding herself to be extremely lucky at this point, for she has been surrounded by her family members as well as her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, who has been spending a lot of time with her, as per reports.
“She’s resting and getting better in the hospital,” a source told People magazine about the 'This Is Me' singer: “Her whole family and Wilmer are just there to support her through recovery.” The same source added, “Wilmer has spent hours at the hospital with Demi every day.”
“He seems very concerned about her,” People quoted another source as saying.
Wilmer has been constantly by Demi's side at Cedars-Sinai hospital, since Tuesday morning, and according to a source, he was initially very “shocked” by the news. The former couple dated each other for six years before formally breaking up in June 2016.
A source close to the publication said that while Wilmer “knew she was going through a tough time,” the actor “wasn’t prepared for this.” “He saw her through so many ups and downs and was her rock through some of her darkest moments. To see her back in such a sad and vulnerable place is heartbreaking for him,” the insider continued, adding that Wilmer has “always cared deeply for her and they truly remained friends after they broke up.”
“Demi always hoped they would end up back together in the future,” the source continued. “He’s the love of her life and vice versa.”
On Tuesday evening, Demi's publicist released a statement to the press confirming that Lovato “is awake and with her family who wants to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support.” And even though the medical reports suggest that Demi's overdose was heroin-related, a source close to the songstress happened to claim that it was not. However, the singer's family is, as per reports, "pushing for rehab,” adding “they have looked into several options.”
As previously reported, Demi was rushed to the hospital following a heroin overdose on Tuesday just weeks after she spoke about her supposed relapse. The 25-year-old 'Sober' singer was taken to a hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday around noon from her home in the Hollywood Hills. Following the reports, Demi's aunt Kerissa Dunn took to social media and posted that Demi is now "awake and responsive."
Just last month, Demi released a new track that reportedly hinted at her relapse after about six years of sobriety. The track consists of lyrics such as, 'Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,' and 'To the ones who never left me/We've been down this road before/I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore.'
Following the release of the track, Demi also released a teaser clip on her social media accounts. The whole issue of her relapse surfaced after fans of the former Disney star had pointed that she was seen holding glasses with presumable alcohol in certain video clips.
The said video clip dates back to April this year, where Demi was photographed at singer Hayley Kiyoko's album launch party, holding a yellow tinted liquid. Critics came at her too hard for that, but she had shut them down right away, saying: "I don't have to defend anything, but it was red bull."
