This is so sad! Demi Lovato’s biological father, Patrick Lovato, has passed away. Demi hasn’t been super close with her dad recently, as the two had a bit of a troubled relationship in the past, however that can’t make this news any easier for Demi or her family.
We don’t have any details about Patrick’s passing, except for a note from Demi’s older sister Dallas Lovato:
Rest in peace daddy I love you..
And a note from Demi’s mom Diana De La Garza:
Thank you all for the outpouring of love and prayers. Y’all are amazing!
We also know that Patrick reached out to Demi back in 2011 when he revealed that he had cancer. He also spoke to the media in early 2012 saying he hoped to hear from Demi before he underwent surgery for a tumor.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Our thoughts are with Demi and her family during this difficult time.
