Demi Lovato living part time at sober house
The 26-year-old singer recently left rehab after a 90-day stint and is now spending three days a week at the facility.
LONDON - Demi Lovato is dividing her time between a sober house and a private Los Angeles residence now she’s out of rehab.
The 26-year-old singer recently left rehab after a 90-day stint - which followed her hospitalisation from an overdose in July - and is now spending three days a week at the facility, which has counselling staff on hand, as well as people who she can share experiences with.
But according to TMZ, Lovato was also keen to resume a normal life so spends the rest of her time at a private home and is free to visit the gym or run errands, though she has a sober coach with her around the clock.
The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker has also been attending regular Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.
Earlier this week, Lovato was pictured catching up with Henry Levy - who she met on a previous stint in rehab - and pals think the clothing designer is a “perfect sober friend” for her.
A source said: “Henry and Demi met a few years ago in rehab. They hit it off immediately and became fast friends.
“Henry takes his sober life very seriously and, when Demi sadly relapsed, they lost touch for some time... Henry is exactly the friend Demi needs right now.
“He is a perfect sober friend for her. Her friends feel he is a positive influence on her.
“Henry and Demi have been hanging at Demi’s home watching movies. This is such a key time in Demi’s sober process and just staying away from the party scene truly helps.”
The Sober singer has vowed to “dedicate herself” to a life of sobriety following several years of struggling with addiction and is thought to be distancing herself from her old friendship group.
A source added: “[She] has dedicated herself to her sober life and has surrounded herself with people in her programme.
“She is avoiding those in her social circle that supported her precarious lifestyle. Lovato deserves a partner who will help her continue to live a clean life and her family and friends feel she is choosing more appropriate friends.”
