Demi Lovato's Family NOT Happy With Her Dad

demi lovatos family not happy with her dad for making comments

Looks like Demi Lovato's dad has made his family angry by deciding to talk to the press about his daughter's issues. Hmm…why does this sound so familiar to us?

Here's what Michael Lohan Patrick Lovato had to say about his daughter's situation:

[The pressure of being a child star] "was one of the things I worried about when she signed with Disney."

More from Pat Lovato:

"It's in her genes with her mom and dad. Mainly watching her mom. I'd gotten out of it myself. 'Cause someone had to take care of the kids."

Demi's mother, Dianna, and Disney's lawyers have warned Pat to stop talking about Demi.

Here's what Demi's attorney, Jamie Young, had to say about it:

"No one speaks for Demi except for her designated representatives. Unfortunately, several people have taken it upon themselves to speak out — both on and off the record — about a situation they know nothing about."

Here's what Demi herself said about her relationship with her father in 2009:

"Two years ago . . . When somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them . . . I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much."

Here's what Patrick said in response to his family and Disney lashing out against him:

"Demi won't even talk to me. I don't blame Disney; I never said that. I was misquoted. Disney has been wonderful to my daughter. Now their lawyers are warning me not to say anything else."

"I would never blame Dianna. She is a wonderful mother. I love Demi, her sister, Dallas, and Dianna. I think about them all the time and I pray they are OK and safe."

It doesn't sound like Demi's father said anything too bad, but if he hasn't even been in contact with her for two years, then it's probably not his place to comment at this point.

What do U think? Does Demi's father have any right to get involved?

    Does he have a *right* to get involved? Yes. He's her father.



  2. 2

    "No one speaks for Demi except for her designated representatives".

    LOL



  3. 3

    OF COURSE it's his place to say something. He is her FATHER after all and if she wasn't some famous creation of Disney and she was trying to get away with drinking or any other typical teenage activity he'd be there, so now that its on a national scale and he is being called out for being a dad? how horrible is that.



  4. 4

    Not her fathers fault the Disney dope punched another girl in the face…hope she gets sued.

    It's almost scary how similar the situation is between Demi and Lindsay at this point. Though at least she realizes she has a problem, unlike Lindsay.



  6. 6

    Instead of fighting. . . .
    Why don't they just focus on Demi?



  7. 7

    well he is her father! And he seems very very worried about her. Sad, sad situation.



  8. 8

    That's her father, and I really doubt hes trying to be a "Michael Lohan"
    and isn't he battling cancer right now?
    I really doubt this man has any bad intentions regarding his daughter.

    Wow, it sounds like Disney is starting to have a problem with all the people they have working for them. Maybe they are putting a bit too much pressure on all these kids really. What the heck, the father isn't supposed to talk? They have nothing but a whole of wrecked up stars right now don't they. Of course those Suite Life kids haven't messed up yet, right? Maybe we will hear later that they were doing some drugs or had hookers in all the time. I hope not. I hope Demi and her father can work this out.

    It's her Dad, and it's not like he is talking like Michael Lohan. He sounds genuinely concerned.

    im depressed i love Demi ima cut

    When you sever all contact with your father, he's no longer in your life. He is not there to be considered a father, she even said she cut off contact, that means no father in her life. He doesn't have the right to speak about someone that does not consider him a father. It's his opinion, not like he fought for her or anything. The news outlets shouldn't talk to someone who doesn't know enough about her life, he's not even in it so why talk?

    She's a star, she has people that protect her image. She's not a "normal" girl where her parents or parent speaks for her, there's a difference.

    I applaud Demi for getting help now, rather than have story after story about her like Lindsey let go on for years. Demi needs to rely on the people she has had for the time she has been in the biz and let those people she doesn't speak with anymore make asses of themselves. Sit down Patrick Lovato, you're only embarrassing yourself. Be concerned privately, not publicly.

    I feel bad for the man, isn't he battling cancer? She'll get better soon. She's the only one on Disney with actual SINGING talent… But man, her dad screwed her over and now Joe Jonas.. that talentless hack.

    I feel really bad for her i hope that she gets better



  15. 15

    NO! He should've gotten involved BEFORE.



  16. 16

    Re: ALFREDOXO – STOP!! Omg, it is sooooo creepy that you keep writing these…



  17. 17

    Yeah, he IS her father. And I don't think that he's TRYING to be another M. Lohan (I believe that he genuinely does care), but he should seriously just shut up at this point.

    If he keeps talking, it'll just make things worse. And they should more focused on Demi right now…



  18. 18

    Anyone that knows anything about Demi knows her biological father is a deadbeat famewhore who ditched them when she was 3.

    He hasn't been a father to that girl in 3 years…he has no right to get involved in anything.



  20. 20

    @Ceecile Where did you find that song? I've been looking for it EVERYWHERE.

    Also, Demi's father has no right to get involved, since he hasn't been in her life until she became famous, that's when he "conveniently" decided to get involved.



  21. 21

    people need to leave this poor girl alone. this is getting out of hand and everyday there are new stories and drama with this. she needs to be left alone so she can move past this and recover and get on with her life.



  22. 22

    You know what, I feel for this girl so much. I went down the same road a few years ago and if my mom started talking about it out the blue when she's not been in my life for sixteen years, I'd have a fucking problem with that.

    Since Lohan is getting better?, Demi is taking her place, crazy parents and all!

    Re: Ceecile – LOL ….REALLY IS THAT A SONG OF HERS?????



  25. 25

    i would be pissed too.

    i have the same problems w. my dad. well very similar



  26. 26

    her dad is a deadbeat! has been for many years. she put too much faith in him at the time and it bit her in the ass. i understand her giving up on him.



  27. 27

    Why does that idiot need to talk to the press and the media anyway? isn't it better for his daughter to handle her problems in private? now he's talking to the world.. he needs to stfu!



  28. 28

    michael lohan lololol
    what i find strange is that a child star has all these minders etc and people act like the kid doesnt have to listen to their parents at all thats just wrong of course u listen to ur own father unless hes the devil which in this case appears hes a man trying to help his kid
    his story seems identical to ml it makes u wonder who is pushing the buttons of these child stars and maybe pushing out the stronger parent out the circle



  29. 29

    BEAUTIFUL!

    I believe he shouldn't get involved with Demi's life because they haven't kept in contact. I know if my day that hasn't kept in contact with me in 4 yrs would do that my family would be P.O. about it and so would i
