We have some sad news, Lovatics. Yesterday Demi Lovato's father, Patrick Lovato, who has been battling throat cancer in recent years, has passed away. Even though no one is quite sure what caused his death, Demi's sister, Dallas Lovato, confirmed the news on Twitter yesterday.
We don't know how close Demi and her father were before his death, but we do know they had a difficult relationship in the past from her song "For the Love of a Daughter" on her Unbroken album.
We can't even begin to know what Demi is going through right now, but be sure to tweet her some love on Twitter today -- she's definitely going to need all of our help to get through a time like this.
Do you have anything you would like to say to Demi? Leave a comment for her below.
