Demi Lovato's granddad begs her to quit music industry after she checks into rehab following drugs overdose
Jaime De La Garza, 81, said that he thinks the showbiz lifestyle is having a negative effect on Demi’s life after she OD’d in July after reportedly smoking Oxycodone laced with fentanyl.
He told The Mirror: "I was devastated – the whole family was. She has the wrong people around her.
“I've no control over that, it's my son and his wife's responsibility. You can't tell her what to do.
"I'm praying for her. I read about her overdose in a magazine. What I'd like for her is to quit the business. Hollywood is nothing but a mess. But it's her decision."
Jaime also revealed that Demi only sees him for around half an hour at a time every few years.
Since news broke that the singer, 25, had OD’d, fans have been speculating on social media about who might have been a negative influence on the pop star.
Lovato had allegedly been partying for 12 hours straight before overdosing.
She reportedly refused to reveal to paramedics what drugs she had taken.
Sources told The Post that, in recent months, Lovato has fallen in with a group of enablers who partied so hard, they kept the rescue drug Narcan on hand during binges.
Narcan is used to stop the effects of opioids (including heroin, oxycodone and fentanyl) and can be administered intravenously, injected into muscle or sprayed up the nose.
It was reportedly used by paramedics after Lovato’s bodyguard found her unconscious at home.
TMZ reported that Lovato’s bodyguard administered first aid and propped up the star to clear her airway.
“There’s a crew of people in Hollywood [that], when you want to party, you find yourself hanging out with these hanger-on friends and they lead you into [the party life] more and it’s a downward spiral,” said a music producer who has worked with talent including Selena Gomez, a longtime friend of Lovato’s.
“Demi was very vulnerable.”
Lovato has been open about her struggles for years — candidly discussing her drug and alcohol addictions, bipolar diagnosis, and cutting.
In a 2013 interview, she said she used to sneak drugs onto jet flights and couldn’t go 30 minutes without cocaine. In 2017 she revealed that she first used coke at age 17 while working on Disney Channel projects.
But in March, she celebrated six years of sobriety. An industry insider said that alcohol had been strictly banned during her “Tell Me You Love Me” tour.
“You couldn’t have anything near her. She had to be out of the building or miles away for anyone to be drinking anything,” said the insider.
Sun Online Showbiz previously revealed that Demi says she will keep "fighting" in an emotional Instagram message.
