Demi Lovato: How Selena Gomez Helped Save Her From Addiction

Tue, December 10, 2013 12:47pm EDT by 18 Comments

It’s no secret that Selena is loyal to her best friends — even when they’re going through truly dark times. She proved that by going to a rehab center to hear Demi speak to a recovery group about her past addictions, TMZ reports.

Selena Gomez, 21, witnessed best friend Demi Lovato, 21, going through the toughest time of her life in 2010, when she spent three months in rehab for emotional and physical issues at the young age of 18. Selena was there for her friend then, and continues to be, after recently going to listen to Demi speak at a sober living home. Demi reportedly also told the group why Selena is such a good friend.

Demi Lovato: How Selena Gomez Helped Save Her From Addiction

Demi, who lived in a sober living home for over a year, spoke to a recovery group at a rehab center with Selena by her side for moral support. She told a personal survival story, involving her battles with drugs, alcohol, anorexia, bulimia and cutting herself, according to TMZ.

She also said that it was her mission to surround herself with positive influences, which is why she has Selena as a friend and lived in the sober living home.

Demi has publicly stated before that Selena helped her through her addiction struggles in rehab. “Selena called me crying when I was in there and was just so worried,” Demi told Televisonet.tv. “I was like, ‘Look, I should be the one crying, it’s all good!’”

Selena Gomez: I’m Proud Of Demi Lovato

Selena expressed why she always supports her friend of 14 years in i-D‘s August 2013 issue. “I’m very proud of Demi and her being able to accept the challenges she went through,” she said.

Selena also said she admires Demi’s dedication to her fans. Selena calls Demi a “role model” after entering rehab and setting an example for those struggling with addiction.

If you were Selena, would YOU go to a rehab center with Demi to support her, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!

Demi Lovato is the perfect example of one hit wonder. She’ll always be remembered as the girl who hit her backup dancer.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,,,,,

I have never seen anything like this in my life. Selena was helping Demi Lovato just to get off the system through her breakdown. Even Mines too.I went through the same problem turning myself into a dark side like Demi Lovato and Linkin Park. It was painful. I tried to make myself better and everything just shut me down. 2 times in a row. I lost my job and I had to quit every jobs I had so many. My best friend left since 2011 and my boyfriend Jacob Bauer didn’t want to go so he wanted to stay with me instead of his families. That was his choice! So he can marry me! And be independent adults we are.
