Demi Lovato may have been caught on video snorting cocaine, according to Radar Online. So is the real reason Demi Lovato entered rehab to save face after learning of the existence of the cocaine video? And could this be the end of ‘Sonny with a Chance’?
Demi Lovato has certainly been experiencing some cloudy days lately. The ‘Sonny with a Chance’ star recently entered rehab, citing “emotional and physical” issues as the reason for needing help. However, there has also been speculation that Demi Lovato’s rehab stint could have something to do with the result of bullying (she has stated that she used to get bullied a lot at school), bulimia, and even self-harm (photos taken a few years ago of red marks on her arms led to speculation that she might have been cutting herself).
Being on tour with the Jonas Brothers and forced to be around the guy that broke her heart (who now has a new girl) probably definitely hasn’t helped matters, and things evidently boiled over for Demi Lovato at an airport when she got in an altercation with a back up dancer.
Interestingly,E! reports that Demi Lovato may have been upset at the backup dancer for ratting her out for her constant partying. So is this where the cocaine video comes in? Did Demi Lovato learn of its existence and lash out?
According to Radar Online, a “friend” of Demi’s reported seeing her snort lines of coke at a party in North Richland Hills, Texas, where she proceeded to act in a very non-Disney-friendly manner by screaming at everyone “F*** you” and ranting about being famous and loved by the whole world. The video that Radar Online was informed about reportedly shows Demi Lovato snorting cocaine using a rolled up bill.
So there’s a distinct possibility that, if a video does exist showing Demi Lovato snorting cocaine and she is aware of it, she went ahead and checked into rehab to save face before it hits the web. But this is just speculation.
If this is true, it could spell trouble for Lovato’s show ‘Sonny with a Chance’. It’s set to start shooting again in January, but there’s a distinct possibility that Demi Lovato won’t be through with rehab by then (especially if she’s addicted to cocaine). And if such a video does exist, Disney may not want to continue shooting ‘Sonny with a Chance’ for fear that parents will be upset with Demi for being a bad role model for their kids.
But while it may be easy to attack Demi Lovato if she does have a drug problem, it’s important to keep in mind that childhood bullying really seemed to hurt her and that she’s got a very busy schedule for a teen. She may have seen cocaine as a way to keep going after exhausting hours of work or as a way to escape painful thoughts and memories. If she is in rehab for this reason, hopefully she’ll get the help she needs and find a healthier way to deal with stress and pain.
Despite her troubles, I still think there’s a good chance that the star of ‘Sonny with a Chance’ will shine again someday, and maybe her ordeal could be a blessing in disguise if she someday talks about it in order to help other troubled teens with similar problems.
