Demi Lovato has taken a leave of absence from Twitter. The “Confident” singer received backlash after joking about the ICE arrest of 21 Savage—real name Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph.
The rapper, who was born in the U.K., was arrested Sunday morning for reportedly overstaying his visa and faces the possibility of deportation. He has reportedly been living in the U.S. illegally since 2006—he came here in 2005—and has claimed to be from Atlanta.
MEANWHILE — Tomi Lahren made fun of 231 Savage getting picked up by ICE, and Cardi B took the opportunity to extend their feud by replying to Lahren’s Tweet with “don’t make me get my leash.” In a previous beef, B threatened to “dog walk” Lahren. Nicki Minaj also weighed in, questioning Lahren’s understanding of American history since Lahren herself is not, actually, an immigrant, so she has no right to laugh at someone getting deported. Or something.
Demi Lovato has been clean for six months — she celebrated the milestone with posting a pic of her six-month blue chip on social media, and a congrats-cake prepared for her by her flunkies.
Wilmer Valderrama has remained a constant in Demi Lovato’s life and sobriety journey. The pair, who have not been spotted publicly together since her release from rehab, still reportedly communicate daily and he has remained her crutch since her hospitalization. The friendly exes are not in a romantic relationship, but one based on support and friendship.
Demi Lovato is easing back into her old life. The 26-year-old is splitting her time between a private residence in Los Angeles and a sober living home. She is also enjoying trips to the gym and running errands. To aid in her post near-death OD experience, the singer has a sober coach by her side 24/7 and attends regular AA meetings. She recently broke her months-long social media hiatus by posting a photo of her voting, while encouraging fans to do the same.
The death of Mac Miller as well as Demi Lovato’s overdose has rapper Lil Xan opening up about his own addiction struggles. The 22-year-old reached out to TMZ—after the news about Mac’s cause of death was released—and said that he used to deal pills before becoming a rapper. Xan also stated that fentanyl terrified him and his “friends were taking it, they were puking” and that’s when he decided to get “out of the game.” While Xan is not totally clean, he said that he has “curbed his drug use.”
Demi Lovato is having trouble selling the house where she almost overdosed and died, but the spooky history has nothing to do with sales problems. She converted the garage into a space for security and a “glam room,” so there’s no covered parking for a car. Additionally, a security gate apparently encroaches on public land. She’s already knocked a half-million off the asking price, down to $8.5 million — and no doubt getting the house up to spec will cost even more.
Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber were scoping out Demi Lovato’s pad this week — the same house she put on the market after suffering a near-fatal drug overdose earlier this year. The 5,500 square foot, 5 bath/4 bedroom is listed for $10 million. He’s currently paying $100k a month in rent.
Demi Lovato has completed 60 days in rehab. Lovato’s sister, Madison De La Garza, told Millennial Hollywood that the singer is “doing really well”. Lovato’s mom is confident that “Demi will come out of this experience stronger that ever”. The 26-year-old entered treatment after she was hospitalized in late July for an overdose.
DEMI LOVATO has reached out for the first time since her overdose, posting on her Instagram.
Quotable: “I now need time to heal and focus on my
sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never
be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on
the other side. I will keep fighting”.
The singer will enter rehab once released from the hospital, according to Cosmopolitan.
