Has singer Demi Lovato checked out of rehab?
On Saturday evening, Nov. 3, 2018, the “Skyscraper” hitmaker was reportedly spotted grabbing sushi with designer Henri Alexander Levy at the Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif. following her three-month stint in rehab, E! News reports.
According to a source cited by the publication, “Demi looked great and so happy to be out.” Adding that the duo “seemed like good friends who were catching up and excited to see one another,” the insider went on to note, “There wasn’t any PDA or romantic gestures, but she was smiling and laughing throughout dinner. She was very relaxed and at ease. She said hello to the sushi chefs when they greeted her with a big smile.”
“She seemed happy and healthy,” the source continued. “They stayed for an hour and a half before leaving together in his car.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Lovato suffered an apparent drug overdose in her Los Angeles home on the morning of July 24, 2018. After receiving treatment Cedars-Sinai Hospital, the 26-year-old pop star, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, entered rehab. At the time, she wrote on social media, “I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.” The singer-songwriter added, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. … I will keep fighting.”
Just last week, reports surfaced claiming that Lovato would remain in rehab through the end of 2018. While the status of her treatment regimen is currently unknown, the former Disney Channel star’s mother, Dianna De La Garza, recently revealed that her daughter reached 90 days of sobriety in late October. “I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her, because addiction, being a disease, it is work,” she said during her appearance on the Conversations with Maria Menounos podcast. “It’s very hard, it’s not easy, and there are no shortcuts.”
