On Sunday (August 6), the outlet revealed that insiders want Lovato back in good health and part of that focus is cutting all of the negative influences out of her life. On Saturday, Lovato was discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and took a private plane to a rehab facility outside of California. Once she exits rehab, the star's team has a major plan to weed out those toxic relationships, which reportedly include a distant relative, as well as one close friend. Lovato's camp held a meeting last week to discuss cutting out anyone who doesn't have her best interest at heart and that includes partygoers, drug users and "yes" friends.
Additionally, Lovato will also be advised to get a new phone number and only distribute it to trusted mentors and friends to keep negativity at bay. Over the weekend, Lovato broke her silence on the controversy, letting fans know that she's planning on focusing her efforts on healing and her road to recovery. "I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction," the 25-year-old singer admitted. "What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."
