Demi Lovato has a new phone number. Sure, changing one's digits doesn't seem like anything extraordinary, but for Lovato, it's another step in the right direction toward a fresh start.
On Tuesday (November 13), the singer invited friends to DM her on Instagram to receive her new phone number. Of course, this prompted thousands — maybe millions — of her Lovatics to reach out, but it's good to see the musician taking control of who she keeps in her inner circle. It was previously reported that Lovato would ditch her old phone number in August and only gave her new one out to trusted mentors and friends in order to nix drug dealers, users, and negativity from her life.
Since the terrifying episode, Lovato has turned her life around tremendously. She celebrated being 90-days sober last month, she's balancing her new life with exercise and visits a sober house three days a week.
Additionally, the 26-year-old's ex-boyfriend, actor Wilmer Valderrama, has remained a constant in her life every step of the way. A source told TMZ the former couple "still communicate regularly," meet and speak several times a week despite not being pictured in the public eye together.
Still, the "Games" artist's return to the spotlight has not come without its share of rocky moments. After sharing an image of her placing her vote in the midterm elections on Instagram, fans had to come to her defense as trolls bombarded Lovato's comments with body-shaming insults.
