Demi Lovato Works With Mental Health Charity To Honour Father

Jul 11 2013, 5:47am CDT | by

Demi Lovato has partnered with a mental health charity to honor her late father.

The 'Made in the USA' singer is working with Cast Recovery to start 'The Lovato Treatment Scholarship' to help those with mental illnesses and seeking treatment following her estranged father Patrick Lovato's death in June.

She told E! News: "My dad suffered from mental illnesses ... He was suffering so bad that he couldn't function in society normally and he couldn't get the help that he needed. So, when he passed away, I thought myself, 'I wish there was something I could have done.' "

The 20-year-old star - who has previously been treated for severe depression and self harming - did not have a close relationship with her father, who died from cancer after a long and painful battle, in the past few years but she wants to "make it up to him".

Demi added: "Now, because he's passed away, I felt like it was too late and then I realised, 'Actually, it's not too late.' He wasn't a bad person, I didn't have the best relationship with him and for so many years I was mad at him, but when he passed away I realised none of it was even his fault. He had mental illnesses."

The 'X Factor' judge added: "Me and Cast Recovery are teaming up to provide the services that one person will need to get through treatment. Because treatment is actually very, very expensive. And whether it's rehab or in-patient, out-patient - whatever it is - I want to be there providing that service because I didn't get the chance to do it with my dad and I want to make it up to him now that he's looking over me."

Demi was raised by her mother Dianna and her stepfather Eddie De La Garza, and she has previously opened up about her strained relationship with Patrick.

In 2011, she penned a song about him, 'For the Love of a Daughter', and in 2009 the singer-and-actress revealed she hadn't spoken to her biological father in "two years".

She said: "The last time I talked to him was two years ago. You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do. I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much."

Rihanna Goes Green For Mac Cosmetics

Aug 5 2014 9:29am CDT | Source: WNKS-FM Kiss 95.1

I guess green in the new black-at least when it comes to celebrity hair colors. Katy Perry is currently rocking the slime green hair and other celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Demi Lovato have gone bright green in the past. And now Rihanna is going green too. Perhaps as a tribute to her bestie Katy? Nope! She’s doing it for her latest Mac Cosmetics campaign. As MAC revealed on their website, they’ve partnered with the songstress on a frosted metallic mauve lipstick and ...

YES! We love us some Cher Lloyd, but we didn't know we'd love her even more if she covered Sam Smith! Well, now she has, and the results are fantastic. The X Factor alum went to SBTV to sing Disclosure's fab song, Latch, featuring her fellow Brit's vocals, and she really knocked it out of the park. We've seen how good Cher can be when teaming up with someone else, like in her new music video with Demi Lovato, so it ...

Remember that photo Demi Lovato posted on Instagram teasing “a KILLER duet”? How could you forget, right? Well, MTV News can confirm the unidentified thumb featured in that picture belongs to none other than Nick. And not only that, when I caught up with the former JoBro last week, he told me the pair have five other songs in the works. One of them, titled “Avalanche,” is being featured on his upco ...

Selena Gomez is ‘going off the rails,’ walks around with her cheeks out

Aug 1 2014 6:10am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I was on the fence on whether to cover a bunch of stuff about Selena Gomez. Then I noticed that her new movie, Behaving Badly, has scored a whopping 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not a single critic has liked this movie, which is supposed to be a raunchy comedy. The poster alone looks awful (I’ve included it at the bottom of this post). Then I noticed these photos of Selena stepping out for a “meeting” yesterday in ...
