Poor, Demi! It looks like Demi Lovato’s ‘Papa’ isn’t doing very well. While Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21, Demi is distressed over her grandfather’s ailing health, calling on her fans to pray for him.
Father’s Day is often a time to celebrate the dads around the world , but for Demi Lovato, 22, it may not be the happiest day in her household. After losing her father from cancer in 2013, she is now facing yet another blow as she revealed her grandfather is not doing well on Instagram June 19. Now she is asking her fans to pray for her beloved “Papa”.
“Please pray for my Papa 😥🙏,” Demi wrote on her Instagram. While she doesn’t say exactly what is happening to her papa, we are quite concerned for the singer. With over 4,500 comments on the photo, fans are also worried, sending lots of love her way with hundreds writing, “Stay strong Demi.” After Demi’s father passed away, one person who stood by her is current boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama, 34. These two have bonded over so much adversity. “[Wilmer] is her rock and he has been in constant contact with her, both by text and in person, during this difficult time and he’ll continue to be her shoulder to cry on,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. By the looks of Demi’s Instagram, Wilmer has been standing by his girl during her difficult times. Demi posted an adorable photo with Wilmer on the week of June 8, “After a long night’s work…. 💙 #fromdusktilldawn.” What a great guy! We love these two together!
Demi Lovato Reveals Other Grandfather Was Gay
While Demi’s ‘papa’ isn’t doing well at the moment, it was her other grandfather in 2014 that had many talking after she revealed he was gay. During the Logo TV Trailblazer Awards, Demi opened up saying, “I’ve never spoken about this before, but my grandfather was a trailblazer himself. He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel a lot of my spirit has come from him.” During the speech Demi continued, “He passed away a few years later, and I only wish he could have seen all the progress that has been made,” said Demi. “It’s such an honor to be welcomed and embraced by the LGBT community.” What a brave man he was! And to Demi’s other grandfather, we are sending so much love his way!
