Demi — there’s no excuse for doing drugs in front of your children — not even a heartbreaking divorce!
But you know what — that betrayal is nothing compared to how you just betrayed your daughter, Rumer.
It’s clear from the 911 call that you were “smoking something” at a party that you were throwing at your house for your friend Heather Parry.
That’s what your friends told the 911 operator. “She smoked something similar to incense, not marijuana.”
Whatever it was, it caused you to go into convulsions and lose consciousness and be “burning up.” Your daughter “Ru” can clearly be heard, sounding incredibly frightened and worried in the background, as various party guests spoke to the 911 operator.
There is no way that your daughter should have had to experience this. “Demi’s behavior one the night of the 911 call was completely irresponsible,” Dr. Petra Morgan M.D., a Beverly Hills drug addiction specialist tells HollywoodLife.com. “Doing drugs in front of your children, no matter how old the kids are, is unjustified, destructive and selfish.”
And not only that — doing drugs in front of your kids send the message to them that it’s OK to do drugs. Dr. Morgan says: “actions speak louder than words.”
What’s just as bad as sending a message that drugs are OK is also the fact Demi that you are reversing the roles in your relationship with your daughter. You are making your daughter “become the mother. Role reversal can do terrible damage,” says psychotherapist to the stars, Dr. Gilda Carle, of drgilda.com.
Rumer is being forced to act as the responsible parent, having to take care of you. She had to watch you convulse and lose consciousness and had to oversee your care at the hospital.
In photos of her outside the hospital where you were treated, she looks like she has the weight of the world on her shoulders.
“What can end up happening is she will begin to resent not having a mother,” explains Dr. Gilda Carle, author of How to Win at Love.
Addiction specialist, Dr. Petra Morgan M.D says that when a person has been an addict, like Demi was in the past, fighting addiction is a lifelong process.
“This is a wake-up call for Demi to take care of herself and get the help she needs,” says Dr. Morgan.
What’s so sad as well is that Demi is repeated the very same bad behavior that she experienced from her own mother Virginia King, who was an alcoholic.
Demi was forced as a teen to be her own mother’s caretaker and it’s a role she never was able to relinquish until her mother died.
Now, she is doing the exact same thing to her own daughter, Rumer, 23, as her mother did to her.
Demi — it’s time to get serious help and decide to grow up and be an adult … even if your heart has been broken!
