A source has come forward with shocking details about Demi Lovato’s partying ways prior to going to rehab. And she sounds like a little Lindsay-in-the-making!
Texas college student Brian Payne tells Life & Style about the night he partied with Demi in North Richland Hills, Texas, where he says he saw her firsthand doing cocaine at a mutual friend’s house party on Dec. 28 last year.
“She was doing line after line like a pro — and she was 17 at the time,” he tells the mag. “I just remember her doing it as if she had been doing it for a long time. It didn’t seem like something new to her.”
Another insider says she’s a total mess since Joe Jonas dumped her and started dating Ashley Greene. “Demi’s been on a tear lately,” says the source. “She’ll chug booze straight from the bottle.”
Apparently Demi’s mom and stepfather, who were with her on tour, figured out their baby girl was turning into a hot mess. “They overheard one of the dancers talking about it and freaked out,” says the insider. “They heard Demi was drinking, but the news that her partying was getting out of control shocked them — and they confronted her immediately.”
“This is a young girl who got caught up in the fame and fortune of Hollywood and couldn’t see straight anymore,” says another insider. “She had eating issues and emotional issues, and everything else got hitched along with that.
Guess punching her back-up dancer was a blessing in disguise! Demi did a good job of hiding her issues, but obviously there was a lot of shit going down behind-the-scenes!
UPDATE: Sources tell RadarOnline.com that there's video of Demi partying and doing lines from that night, and it's currently being "shopped around."
One partygoer says, "Demi was belligerent, being slutty and doing coke all over the house. The guy who hosted the party shot multiple videos of this and what I've seen with my eyes, Demi is screaming, 'F**k all of you, I'm famous, I don't care what any of you think of me the whole world loves me.' He shot her in the bathroom as she was finishing a line (of cocaine)."
