Demi Lovato’s rep denies the star is in treatment for drugs

TMZ cited Lovato’s reps as saying, “Demi Lovato is not in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. As we have said since she entered treatment last week, Demi decided to seek help for emotional and physical issues she has battled throughout her life.”

The reps also add, “She has taken this step in order to get her life in order. While we know many are interested in Demi and her life, we do ask for a modicum of privacy during this difficult time.”

The statement comes after rumors circulated about Lovato’s alleged heavy drinking and cocaine use that reports claim are what led her to check into rehab.
