Rep Denies Lovato Rumors

Demi Lovato’s much-publicized trip to a medical facility to treat emotional and physical issues is bringing various “witnesses” out of the woodwork, claiming the Disney star’s downward spiral began long ago.

Life & Style magazine reports one “insider” claims to have seen Lovato snorting cocaine at a party in Dec. 2009, and another claims “She’ll chug booze straight from the bottle.”

That’s rubbish, according to a Lovato spokeswoman.

“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 rep told the Los Angeles Times. “She has taken this step in order to get her life in order.”
