Demi Lovato wasted no time sparking up a possible romance with fashion designer Henry Levy after checking out of rehab for drug abuse.
But Levy has a history with addiction himself, and RadarOnline.com can reveal exclusive details about his dark past.
“He used to have a drug problem,” a source close to the Enfants Riches Déprimés owner told Radar. “He used to like to party.”
In a 2016 interview with Complex magazine, Levy opened up about his drug-riddled teen years.
“I was, like, a f**k up in high school,” he told the magazine. “I was caught up in drugs and s**t like that.”
Levy completed his first rehab stint at the age of 15 when he checked into Visions Adolescent Treatment, which is a facility for underage addicts in Malibu.
He later checked into Cirque Lodge in Utah and Promises in Malibu. He attended an outpatient high school and has lived in several sober living homes.
He opened up about his stint at Betty Ford treatment center in Oregon, “That’s when it was on some not-flossy shit. Like, came out and was sleeping in a bunk bed with a bunch of 50-year-old meth addicts trying to recover. And that’s when I started coming up with the idea for the brand.”
But now, Levy could be a good influence on Lovato, as the insider claimed he is “sober and straight-edge" at this point.
Also, despite speculation on Levy’s sexuality, the insider insisted he is “straight.”
“He’s always had a thing for brunettes,” the source said. “He’s a good guy, very personable. He’s really cool. He is a genuine person.”
“When his line was out, he didn’t want to be in the spotlight,” the source said.
Lovato was photographed holding hands with Levy in Beverly Hills on Saturday, November 10. They were spotted together again the next day.
The 26-year-old completed a 90-day stint in rehab after she was rushed to the hospital from an overdose at her Hollywood Hills home in July.
