Demi Lovato is reportedly making good progress.
The 25-year-old singer remains at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she’s recovering from “complications” related to her suspected overdose last week. Sources previously revealed Lovato’s friends and family were focusing on her immediate health recovery, and were hesitant to mention a possible rehab stint; however, now that the singer is expected to leave the hospital this week, her loved-ones may present her with an ultimatum.
Insiders told TMZ that Lovato’s team is planning to send her to rehab after her hospital discharge within the upcoming days. If she declines to enter a treatment center—which is a definite possibility—those in her inner circle are threatening to cut ties.
“She could die if she doesn't [enter rehab], and that's not going to be on my watch that we did nothing,” a source told TMZ.
Many suspect Lovato will object to treatment, as she allegedly refused to enter rehab months before her apparent overdose in late June.
“She pushed away everyone that tried to call her out or help her including sober coaches, friends and management,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight about her recent relapse. “The trouble is that Demi has been more successful than ever, and everyone wants a piece. It becomes this perfect storm. She pushed away all the people who are there to protect.”
Sources said they are hopeful that Lovato’s recent hospitalization may have scared her enough to finally seek treatment. We'll keep you updated as more information about Lovato's recovery becomes available.
