Demi Lovato is out of the hospital and currently checked into rehab, for a visit that's expected to last at least 30 days. The rehab visit arrives a couple weeks after Lovato was rushed to the ER for what was originally believed to be a heroin overdose. As a result, the pop star's forthcoming tour is officially canceled, as she focuses on recovering her health at this time. While it's undoubtedly disappointing news for the many fans of the musician's tunes, everyone is hoping for her safety and health at this time, and that's certainly the most important thing for the troubled young singer.
Demi Lovato was first expected to go to Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico at the end of September. Then in November, she would've been seen in Santiago, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Rio de Janiero, Brazil; Olinda, Brazil; and Fortaleza, Brazil, as it was noted on her website. Alas, as it was reported by Page Six, the international tour is officially suspended while the musician stays diligent about her medical recovery. There's no word yet on refunds when it comes to pre-purchased tickets for the canceled concert dates. We expect that issue to be resolved, though. The tour was titled the Tell Me You Love Me tour. It's unclear if there are any plans for Demi Lovato to return to these tour locations when her health returns.
In a statement published shortly after the tour cancellation was announced, Live Nation and Lotus Production said they wish Demi Lovato "the best now and in the future." They also hoped to see the musician "soon in South America." Demi Lovato also previously canceled her tour dates in South America in April due to production issues. The pop singer claimed to be heartbroken about canceling the tour dates, but Lovato hasn't spoken out about the tour's cancelation at this time.
Nearly two weeks after Demi Lovato was admitted into the hospital, the singer-songwriter went onto Instagram to update her fans about her condition. In her social media address, she admitted to always being transparent about her journey with addiction, and she reminded them that addiction isn't something that simply goes away or disappears or fades with time. It's an ongoing battle. Despite six years of sobriety earlier this year, Demi relapsed and she's focusing on better herself with the help of friends, family, and loved ones. She thanked her fans, team, family and the staff at the Cedars-Sinai hospital, which is where she resided, for all their support and help during this difficult moment in Demi Lovato's life. Now that she's out of the hospital, she's focused on improving her health in rehab, and Lovato hopes she can return to her drug and alcohol-free lifestyle when she gets out.
Demi Lovato previously canceled a scheduled concert in Atlantic City the week she was placed in the hospital. She also previously canceled two shows in London which were supposed to take place in June. She credited the cancelation to vocal cord issues and illness. We wish Demi Lovato a safe and speedy recovery during this difficult time. We'll continue to keep you posted on Demi Lovato's condition here at CinemaBlend.
