Demi Lovato is lucky to be alive after her near-fatal overdose this past summer. Following her hospitalization, the singer took to social media to voice just how thankful she was to the people that saved her. At the same time, she promised fans she would get help and turn her life around. Now, after months of working with a sober coach, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Lovato, 26, is "still sober,” much thanks to the help of mom Dianna De La Garza and ex Wilmer Valderrama!
"Demi is being kept in check by her mother, Dianna, who is pretty much acting as her manager and publicist and assistant now," a source close to Lovato said.
As Lovatics know, De La Garza, 56, became extremely concerned when Lovato began dating hard-partying fashion designer Henry Levi after being released from treatment in August 2018.
After a few weeks, however, Lovato broke off the romance and went back to rehab.
"Dianna is just so glad that Demi finally came to her senses and got rid of Henri," the insider told Radar, adding, "She is doing really well now! For the first time in a long time, her friends and family are not worried about her one bit because they know she's in good hands."
It isn't just her mother's tough love what has gotten Lovato through the darkness, as the insider told Radar that Valderrama — who has been sober for several years himself, thanks to Lovato — continues to be a huge source of support!
"Demi's family would love for nothing more than her to be with Wilmer again," the source told Radar. "They have already taken him in as family and he got very close to her mother, as well as other members of her family, when Demi was in the hospital and in a treatment center."
Radar reader recall the 39-year-old actor was one of the first people to visit Lovato in the hospital after her overdose.
"Wilmer has kind of taken the role as messenger to her family and loved ones on so that Dianna doesn't have to, and everyone really appreciates him, so much," the insider added.
