Demi Lovato opens up about feeling abandoned by her team

Demi Lovato recently appeared on the talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show and spoke about her struggles through substance abuse. She was asked by Ellen DeGeneres what made her relapse after being sober for almost 6 years. She said that when she was first sober, she was just 19 and that was not even a legal age to be drinking.

The singer spoke about how she reached a point when her entire team was working towards keeping the sobriety alive. There were instances when her bank statements and Starbucks orders were checked due to her eating disorders. Demi Lovato said all of this led to her being really unhappy. She was unhappier than she was when she was drinking. She contacted her team with the issue and all that they said was that she was being selfish as this wouldn’t just put her down but also pull all of them (the team) with her.

Demi Lovato said that this really triggered her issues with abandonment as she had faced a similar situation as a child. The singer pointed out how her team leaving took her back to that disturbing childhood memory. She said that is when she got drunk followed by a party where there were substances of different kinds.
