Demi Lovato‘s 16-year-old sister Madison De La Garza is speaking out again about her sister’s overdose. Demi was hospitalized due to a dangerous substance abuse relapse in July. The 26-year-old singer is now recovering in rehab, and her little sister is confirming that Demi is working hard to get better.
Madison said in an interview with Popcorn Talk, “Demi’s doing, she’s doing really well. She’s working really hard on her sobriety and we’re all so incredibly proud of her… It’s been crazy for our family. It’s been a lot. Um but we’ve been through a lot together and every single time, I mean if you read my mom’s book you would know… Every time we go through something, we always come out on the other side a hundred times stronger than before. And so we’ve just been um we’ve been so thankful for everything. For the little things.”
One of the first things she wants to do with Demi when she gets out of rehab is go to one of their favorite frozen yogurt shops.
“I guess I’m really excited to… I mean there’s so many little things. It sounds so small, but go to Menchie’s… Honestly, I’m more of a Pinkberry person, but she likes Menchie’s and so we like we usually go there.”
Madison previously addressed Demi’s apparent overdose for the first time publicly by writing Demi a special Instagram post for her birthday. Maddie was feeling extra thankful that she has her big sister in her life.
“today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead i get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, demi’s team, and everyone across the world who offered their support – without all of these people i wouldn’t have my big sister anymore,” she wrote.
Maddie continued, “i’ve been thinking about how i wish that everyone could see the silly little things that she does, like how her nostrils move when she says certain words and when she brushes my hair behind my ear when i’m trying to sleep, because those are the things i’m thankful for today. they seem so small, but those little things make up my sister – not a singer, not a celebrity, and definitely not what she’s been described as in the media – she’s a daughter, a friend, and my big sister… and i am so, so thankful that i can tell her happy birthday. #happybirthdaydemi.”
What an incredible sibling bond these two have. Not only is she following in Demi’s footsteps by being an actress, but she even appeared alongside her sister in Disney Channel’s Princess Protection Program and Sonny with a Chance. Their relationship runs deep, and you can even tell they’re sisters with just one glance. Now if you’ve seen pictures of the sisters posing together, you know that they could seriously pass as twins.
