Demi Lovato says the people who were by her side when she went to rehab weren’t the same friends she’d expected to have her back.
When Demi Lovato checked into rehab to deal with her eating disorder and self-mutilation, she found out who her true friends were. In a recent interview with Billboard, the 19-year-old old starlet admitted there were two girls who supported her through thick and thin.
“I feel like there are some people that you’re friends with that talk to you on Twitter or you text, but the people that are really there for me are the people that were there for me when I went into treatment,” Demi said.
Kim K, 30, is more of an older sister toward Demi, which is great — but we’re thrilled Selena, 19, stepped up to the plate and was there for Demi when she really needed it. Demi and Selena used to be inseparable. Having met at a Barney audition when they were little kids, the two future superstars were joined at the hip on-screen and off. However, as they got older, started seeing boys and hanging out with new people, their relationship seemed to deteriorate — they barely hung out at all.
Even though she went through a dark time, Demi is lucky she weeded out her true friends.
