Following her father Patrick’s sad death on June 23, Demi has tweeted a cute throwback pic of her and her ‘daddy.’ So sad.

Demi Lovato and her estranged father Patrick Lovato may have had a difficult relationship, but she appears to have disregarded their troubled past since he passed away. Demi tweeted an adorable picture of her as a young child with her father saying she loved him and that she hoped he was resting in peace. Poor Demi.
