Biography

Playing a teen who aspires to become a musician was not much of a stretch for Demi Lovato, who first made an impression on millions of young fans by starring opposite teen heartthrobs the Jonas Brothers in "Camp Rock" (Disney Channel, 2008), leading to her being cast on her star-making tween-comedy series, "Sonny with a Chance" (Disney Channel, 2009-2011). With her amiable smile and approachable beauty, Lovato was catapulted to teen icon status and Disney darling in much the same way "Hannah Montana" had made Miley Cyrus a superstar only a few years prior. An all-too familiar scenario began to play itself out late in 2010, however, when Lovato suddenly entered a rehabilitation facility to address her struggles with "cutting" and bulimia. Soon after completing her treatment program in 2011, Lovato dropped out of "Sonny with a Chance" in order to focus on her music career, which included a new album, Unbroken, and signing on as a judge on the popular music competition series, "The X-Factor" (Fox, 2011- ) for its second season. Showing a remarkable amount of maturity for a teenaged celebrity, Lovato was determined to avoid the pitfalls suffered by so many of her young contemporaries as she focused on the next phase of her promising career.

Bonus Trivia

.

In October 2010, Lovato pulled out of her Camp Rock 2 tour with the Jonas Brothers and checked herself into a treatment center to deal with "emotional and physical issues," her representatives said in a statement. A person familiar with the situation previously told the Associated Press that Lovato had battled eating disorders and self-mutilation in the past.

.

Lovato spoke to People magazine (April 20, 2011) about her private struggles – not only with anorexia and bulimia, but also with bipolar disorder. She discovered the disorder during her three-month stay at a treatment center where she underwent therapy for anorexia, bulimia, and cutting.

.

In March 2013, Lovato revealed she had a secret half-sister during an on-air interview with Long Island, NY radio station WBLI. The singer did not say which parent her sister came from. Lovato also had an older sister named Dallas and a younger half-sister, Madison De La Garza from "Desperate Housewives" (ABC).
