It’s been over five months since Demi Lovato suffered an overdose that nearly claimed her life.

Lovato checked into rehab after the incident and spent 90 days dividing her time between two top-notch facilities and two teams of experts.

These days, the singer is out of treatment, and insiders say she’s fully committed to the hard work of recovery.

Lovato has been sharing frequent updates with her fans on social media, and yesterday, she took to Instagram to post some holiday photos.

While it appears that Demi had a very merry Christmas, she’s also experienced some frustrations as of late, and she took to Twitter last week to clear the air.

“If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF,” the singer tweeted on December 21.

“Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.

“Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.. but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal.”

Lovato Christmas

Lovato continued:

“I would love to set the record straight on all the rumors out there but I literally don’t owe anyone anything so I’m not going to. All my fans need to know is I’m working hard on myself, I’m happy and clean and I’m SO grateful for their support. 

“I’m so blessed I get to take this time to be with family, relax, work on my mind, body and soul and come back when I’m ready. I have my fans to thank for that. I’m so grateful, truly. I love you guys so fucking much  thank you.”

While fans have been eager for updates on Demi’s health, most of the responses to her tweets were messages of support and promises to respect her privacy.

It’s certainly understandable that Lovato would prefer to avoid public scrutiny during her healing process, and given her close relationship with her fans, we’re sure she’ll offer more information when she feels the time is right.

We wish her all the best in her continued recovery.
