Why did Demi Lovato dump her friends? The X Factor judge didn't dump all of her friends--just a select few. But do you know why she did such a thing?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, in an interview with Teen Vogue, the "Give Your Heart A Break" singer shares how after her time in rehab she had to dump some of her friends. And while that wasn't an easy thing to do, it was necessary to her well-being.
"I did kind of a friend cleanse right after rehab, where I weeded out people who didn't have my best interests at heart," Demi says. "Now I have friends who love me for who I am and don't care about what I'm doing ... Some of them don't even know my songs!"
Friends like Selena Gomez stuck by Demi's side. Selena even stayed in touch while she was in rehab. Friends who dabbled in drugs or alcohol had to go.
Can you imagine how difficult that was for Demi Lovato to willingly distance herself from friends in order to live a happier and healthier life? Her courage and strength led her to a new place, however, where she lives drug free. And even though she fights daily battles with some of her demons, she's in far better control of them then she was prior to her breakdown and her time spent in a rehab facility.
