Demi Lovato Admits to Relapsing in Heartbreaking New Song

Demi Lovato released “Sober” today and it was not the uplifting song fans were hoping for. On the track, Lovato admits to relapsing after six years of sobriety.

Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore
And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled 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

Lovato tries to be strong, but her addiction overcame her.

And I’m sorry for the fans I lost
Who watched me fall again
I wanna be a role model
But I’m only human

She ends the song by promising to get help again.

I’m sorry that I’m here again
I promise I’ll get help
It wasn’t my intention
I’m sorry to myself

She mentions being “sorry” a lot, but can we trust someone who put out a song titled “Sorry, Not Sorry”?

Followers of the singer on Twitter may have seen this coming. In late May, she sent out the following tweet about her “truth” coming out.

Days later, she said she had “grown more in the past two months than I have in years.” That’s a bold statement considering she celebrated being six years sober in March and routinely spoke about how getting sober improved her life.

She later unfollowed her sober coach Mike Bayer and sent out the following tweet.

Radar Online reports that the relapse happened two months ago after she “stopped the accountability portion of her recovery.”

“No one can get her attention,” said a friend. “Her team tried to hire a sober coach, and she went nuts!”

Lovato canceled tour dates earlier this month due to swollen vocal chords. She’s also reportedly been a no-show at recovery meetings.

In all seriousness, let’s hope Demi recovers again. She’s two years away from the dreaded “Death at 27” curse and no one wants that.
