As humans, we heal differently. While some of us may find it easy just to let go and move on, other might have to do away with things or people that bring back bad memories. Let’s just say Demi Lovato’s Hollywood home needed to go so she could move on with her new life.
According to the information E! News gathered from a source; the singer is “selling her old place and focusing on getting healthy and moving forward.”
According to the listing on Zillow, the singer’s four bed and six bath apartment in Hollywood is up for sale at $9,495,000 only. The house has “unobstructed views from Downtown to the Pacific Ocean on over an acre of land.”
Around noon on the 24th of July 2018, Lovato was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center after first responders at her home have administered naloxone which is the emergency treatment in the case of an opioid overdose.
The singer remained in the hospital for two weeks sufferings from occasional nausea and high fever, But she had the care of her mum Dianne De La Gracia, sisters Madison De La Gracia and Dallas Lovato, and her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama who stayed with her in the hospital for the period she was there.
A source told E! News at the time of the incident that, “This is obviously a huge wake-up call. Demi doesn’t want to die, and she’s very grateful to be alive.”
A week into rehab, Lovato decided to fly to Chicago to see a therapist who deals majorly with mental health and sobriety. A source shared with E! News that the reason Lovato chose to go to rehab, was because she “wants to make a statement to her fans, family and friends that she is strong and can recover.”
The singer wrote the song “Sober” to talk about her relapse. The lyric of “sober” includes, “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore / And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilt on the floor / To the ones who never left me / We’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
Demi Lovato had celebrated 6years of being substance-free in March 2018 and posted on Twitter that “So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It is possible.”
Nearly two weeks after she was taken to the hospital, Demi broke her silence on the matter by posting a note on Instagram where she came out clean about her struggles.
“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,” Lovato wrote.
Lovato also gave a special shout-out to her fans. “To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.”
However, the “sorry not so sorry” singer concluded her note by saying she needs “time to heal and to focus on my sobriety and the road to recovery.”
She went further to promise her friends, family, and fans, “I will keep fighting.” And letting go of the apartment where it all happened is her way of Fighting and hopefully winning this battle.
