Demi Lovato’s Uncle Says Demi Was Working Too Hard

November 7, 2010 • By

It looks like Demi Lovato’s father Patrick Lovato isn’t the only person Demi knows who has something to say about her checking herself into rehab for “personal issues” after quitting the Jonas Brothers World Tour / Camp Rock 2 Tour early. Now Demi’s uncle Francisco Lovato has come forward to talk about how hard Demi was working and how that contributed to her seeking help.

Francisco spoke to the website TooFab.com, saying:

I saw Demi in August, I went to one of her concerts with The Jonas Brothers outside of Sacramento, and she totally rocked it out, and did a great show, there was great energy. She was in good spirits it seemed, but I made a small comment, and the one thing I said to her was, ‘Demi, you’re working hard, and I know people love your talent, and you’re busting it out…’ but then she turned around and looked at me with a major look of seriousness, and she said to me, ‘Look, I work really hard.’ She had this look of exhaustion. I spoke to Dianna [Demi’s mom]… and she said, ‘I’m trying to get her two days off in a row, because she’s having to work day in and day out.’ I’d like Demi to chill out for a little.

Do you think Demi working so hard had something to do with her quitting the tour early?
