Demi Lovato’s younger sister Madison De La Garza has shared an update on the singer who has spent almost two months in rehab following a near-fatal drug overdose in July.
The 16-year-old actress appeared on the Millennial Hollywood podcast where she was asked about Lovato’s well-being.
“Demi’s doing… she’s doing really well. She’s working really hard on her sobriety and we’re all so incredibly proud of her,” Madison said.
“It’s been crazy for our family. It’s been a lot. We’ve been through a lot together and every single time, I mean, if you read my mom’s book you would know… Every time we go through something, we always come out on the other side a hundred times stronger than before.”
Lovato and Madison’s mom, Dianna De La Garza, released a memoir called Falling with Wings earlier this year, which details her own struggles with substance abuse and how she coped while also caring for daughters with addictions.
“We’ve been so thankful for everything. For the little things,” Madison added.
The “Desperate Housewives” actress said she is looking forward to Lovato leaving rehab and being able to enjoy the simple pleasures with her big sister.
“I guess I’m really excited to… I mean, there’s so many little things. It sounds so small, but go to [frozen yogurt spot] Menchie’s… Honestly, I’m more of a Pinkberry person, but she likes Menchie’s and so we usually go there,” she explained.
Madison’s comments echo similar sentiments shared by Dianna in an interview with Newsmax TV last month.
“I can honestly say today that [Lovato] is doing really well, she’s happy, she’s healthy,” Lovato’s mother said. “She’s working on her sobriety and she’s getting the help she needs, and that in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”
