Demi Lovato Opens Up in Video Message Posted for Fans
Having remained mum on her decision to seek treatment since leaving an Illinois rehab center in January, Demi Lovato has finally opened up about her struggles in a newly posted video message.
While she opted to leave out specific details, the "Camp Rock" star did say, "The journey that I've been on has been very difficult over the past few months. I was dealing with issues that I know not only girls just my age but of all ages are dealing with."
The 18-year-old continued, "I can't tell you how much light you guys brought into my life in probably the darkest time of my life. Without you guys, I wouldn't be here today."
Lovato also was sure to thank her many fans for their continued support, as she graciously told, "I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the support you guys have given me along the way...Your support is what got me through this."
After checking out of rehab just last month, word has it Demi Lovato has turned to ex-flame Wilmer Valderrama for support.
The Disney darling and the "From Prada to Nada" actor have been spotted together in the Los Angeles area, meeting up for movies and grocery store stops.
Perez Hilton says the two stars have been caught looking affectionate with one another and an insider says Demi and Wilmer have been secretly dating since May 2010.
As could be expected, Miss Lovato's rep refuses to comment on her personal life, but a friend told, "For now, she is getting back to her regular routine and spending time with her family and close friends."
Meanwhile, Disney told MTV, "Demi's management will inform us when she is ready to return to work," thereby confirming that she's not lined up for anything just yet.
