Demi Lovato Spotted Buying Beer Before Her 19th Birthday Party — What About Treatment?

Sat, August 20, 2011 4:35pm EDT by 43 Comments

We think Demi should be careful surrounding herself with non-sober people after her struggles — are YOU concerned about her?

Demi Lovato worked so hard to sort out her issues while in treatment, but now she’s worrying fans after being spotted buying beer with friends for her 19th birthday party!

Demi, who turns 19 today, was out celebrating her big day in the early hours of the morning, and was snapped by X17Online.com with an older friend who was purchasing beer.

The night started when her buddies took her bowling at Pinz in the Valley in Studio City, Calif. After bowling wound down at 1:30 A.M., Demi and a buddy went to 7-11 to pick up some Miller Lite and Red Bull. It seems they were planning to get crazy all night long!

We know her birthday is a time to celebrate, but given she is underage and has gone through so much during her time in treatment, we’re very concerned about her hanging out with older, non-sober friends. It’s not a crime, but it’s not exactly the best environment when your friends put temptation right in front of you!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers — was Demi just innocently hanging out with friends or is she headed back down a dark road?

Again, I would say this falls under the category of the intentionally misleading nature of X17 and say that this is not what it appears to be, or, more to the point, not what X17 wants you to believe that it appears to be. An cynic would say that Demi has not been forthright with her addiction-related past and that a lot of her comeback has been driven by an extreme efficient/masterful P.R. machine. And that a lot of evidence against her was siezed and/or purchased, which is why none of it ever surfaced. I’ve been accused once or twice of being a cynic. Personally, I wouldn’t hold it against her anyway. But that’s just me.

I really hope this isn’t true. She is doing so well! In this stage of sobriety she shouldn’t even be around others who are drinking. If her friends need booze so badly, need it over hanging out with her, lose them, they aren’t good friends anyway. She needs friends who respect this time in her life, and will help her heal, not bring her into a place of temptation.

Demi had been PREACHING that sober is sexy on her twitter. She would NOT drink underage. The guy she was with bought the Miller Lite and Demi bought a case a freaking REDBULL. The two of them may not have even been together… just a possibility. She is a HUGE role model for young people and she wouldn’t risk losing that.

She wasn’t treated for alcohol dependency so I don’t see a problem with this. There are plenty of young girls drinking way more than a few lite beers!

Demi is still at transitioning age, just because you are 18-19 years old it doesn’t mean that you’re a fully trained adult. People who are at Demi’s age are in college right now.

Evidence? Lol are you kidding me? Evidence? You consider her buying lite beer as evidence? Do you guys know anything about alcohol at all? Because I can tell you now, if she had an alcohol problem then she would know a thing or two about alcohol content and what drinks gets you drunk faster right? If she had a serious drinking problem, and was looking to get smashed? Then why would she be touching Lite beer? Hell why would she be touching beer in general? She’d go for something a little harder. If anything this is proof that she doesn’t have a problem with drugs or alcohol if she has a friend purchasing lite beer for her.

Maybe if you guys weren’t idiots, you’d know that Lite beer is not the number one choice for a booze addict to run to when they’re looking to get smashed. Oh and for the record, that butter beer Selena is drinking would kill her faster than Lite Beer. Please. There’s a reason they call Miller Lite, beer flavored water.
In all my years of working with people who have a problem with booze, you know what’s the one thing I learned? Lite beer is the last thing on their mind when it comes to getting drunk.

Plus, you cannot trust your eyes when you see any picture or believe at face value any “story” published by X17. This site is very shady. These are the same people who insinuated that Lindsay Lohan made some sort of a drug deal in the middle of the street in broad daylight in front of everyone while on probation. Which is completely ridiculous. They also tried to concoct absurd lies about Christina Aguilera having an affair with Samantha Ronson.

She isn’t an alcholic, as far as I know. Very few people who are at that age never drink. I mean, she’s the age of a college sophomore. I would only be concerned because she is bipolar. I wouldn’t be concerned that she’s going to all of a sudden become a raging alcoholic. Jeez. Most people who drink just end up with a hangover.

x17online? That’s your source? You guys are pathetic. The beer was obviously for her friend and she only had Red Bull. So, get your facts straight.
