Demi Lovato, star of Disney’s Sonny With a Chance, has witnessed her dreams of spending Thanksgiving with her with family simply shatter right before her eyes.
A few weeks ago, the young damsel had checked into the Illinois rehab center Timberline Knolls for “emotional and physical issues.”
“She doesn’t want to be in the center for Thanksgiving and wants to go home,” a source tells E! News.”
To add insult to injury, A Disney Channel insider told E! that despite Lovato’s attempt to leave the center early, she wouldn’t return back to the show – at least for now. Disney decided to change the direction of the show, and focus its attention on the show within the show titled “So Random” in order for the young star to recuperate.
Lovato’s rep recently spoke to People and said she wouldn’t be able to go home, but, her family “will be there to celebrate Thanksgiving with her,” while Demi continues getting help for “emotional and physical issues.”
The rep also mentioned that Lovato is on the verge of getting better saying: “She remains committed first and foremost to her treatment. Demi has made tremendous progress to date, but understands that she has more work to do.”
