DEMI LOVATO REPORTEDLY HEADING BACK TO REHAB AFTER HOSPITALIZATION – (07/26/2018)
Demi Lovato is reportedly heading back to rehab. The 25-year-old says she is “very grateful to be alive” and will be heading back to rehab after being hospitalized for an apparent overdose.
Demi was reportedly treated with overdose reversal drug Narcan at her home in Los Angeles on Tuesday by first responders, who found her unconscious.
Stars have been voicing their support for Demi on social media, and at least one – her ex, Wilmer Valderrama, has visited her in the hospital.
The 38-year-old actor was spotted paying a visit to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where his ex-girlfriend is currently being treated.
Wilmer was spotted arriving around 3 P.M. and stayed for over two hours.
“He was somber and quiet and you could tell he was in a very serious mood. He arrived and left by himself,” a source told E! News. He seemed “very down” according to the report.
Justin Bieber was stunned by the new. “It’s very sad. I haven’t talked to her, but my prayers go out to her and her family,” the newly engaged pop star said in a video on TMZ. “I thought she was sober, that’s terrible, right?” he added, saying he would be praying for her.
Charlie Puth dedicated his hit “See You Again” to the singer during his show in Camden, New Jersey on Tuesday. “This song goes out to Demi Lovato,” Charlie says in fan-shot video. “I hope she makes a quick, quick recovery and our prayers are with her.” He then performed the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated song from Furious 7.
DEMI LOVATO REJECTED INTERVENTION WEEKS AGO? Demi Lovato’s team tried to get her help weeks ago, but she blew them off, TMZ reports. Sources tell the gossip outlet that the singer refused to go to rehab and continued to party. TMZ reports that her refusal to seek help may have been behind her split with longtime manager Phil McIntyre a few months ago. Neither have publicly said why they parted ways, but he was reportedly behind the intervention. (TMZ)

Dua Lipa slammed United Airlines for their treatment of her sister, who has a severe peanut allergy.
Dua tweeted from her flight early Wednesday, “I can’t believe i’m on a @united flight rn and I told the steward that my sister was severly [sic] allergic to nuts and his reply was ‘we’re not a nut free airline so if she has an epi pen she might have to use that as we can’t not serve other passengers in your section nuts.’”
Dua added, “Is it just me or is that kinda mental???”
A fan asked if they even made an announcement to the cabin that a passenger had a severe allergy. To which the singer replied, “They didnt! They just said well we wont serve you two nuts but thats all we can do! LOL.”
