Demi's Dad Will NOT Be Silenced!

demi lovatos dad will not be silenced

Demi Lovato's mom and Disney lawyers will not keep Demi's dad from speaking out!

Here's what Patrick Lovato had to say about being told to keep quiet:

"This is the United States of America, I can talk anytime I want to."

Lovato made a point to clarify that he doesn't blame Disney specifically for Demi's issues, but rather the industry in general:

"I'm proud that she's working for Disney. I'm just concerned about the industry, not them [Disney] specifically because they have taken care of Demi. Shoot, they give her bodyguards. As far as I'm concerned she's in great hands with Disney."

"However, it's just the industry itself. When you chose to be a star like that it's not the people you're working for to blame. It's the whole industry… the pressures and the time element that you have to put forward. It's those types of things that go along with what you chose and you can't blame Disney for that."

Here's what Demi's dad had to say about his estrangement with his daughter:

"It hasn't been my choice. In the last couple of years I've been out of the loop, that's for sure. That's not only their choice but it was my choice too… as I never wanted to interfere with her career."

"I never wanted to stand in their way because we've been away from each other from quite some time, so I didn't want them to think that now that she's a star, I wanted to get back into her life."

"That's the reason, I didn't want to be in their lives, I didn't want them to think I was trying to scoot in and be part of the mix when I hadn't been part of the mix in a while."

Seems like you're NOT being very dadlike, Patrick. Maybe it's time to be quiet.

After 2 years of silence, do you really think your family is going to appreciate you going to the media to discuss Demi's issues?

Think about it!

What do U think? Should Patrick be quiet? Does he have the right to speak up?

    Oh hell, it's Lohan Syndrome striking again. He needs to shut up.

  2. 2

    Maybe instead of blaming Disney, the parents should take responsibility for how their child turned out.

  3. 3

    He has every right to say what he wants to say… to his friends, and people around him. It's difficult for a parent to watch thier child go through a difficult time, no matter the situation. It's fine for him to be worried, especially considering the media attention on Demi.

    But if he wants to prove to his family that he isn't trying to be involved in their lives again because Demi is famous, making public statements isn't helping his case. Let the girl recover and rest in peace. Yeesh.

    well, if I WASN'T ALLOWED NEAR MY KID FOR TWO YEARS, (and I don't know the reason for him and DON'T BELIEVE WHAT IS COMING OUT OF HIS EXES SIDE. There are at least 3 SIDES TO EVERY STORY). AND I could not get info, talk to her, etc. I WOULD PROBABLY VENT, TALK TO, YELL, AT THE FIRST REPORTER THAT CAME ALONG. Would it help relations, NO, but it looks like he has NONE to begin with. It is a shame when a teenage girl has cut off her father. You have to wonder how much of the MOTHER'S influence has to do with it and it truely SUCKS if it is because of the Mother. Yes, if the Father is not supporting the family, that is wrong too

  5. 5

    Look at IDIOT JON GOSSELIN, he does not have a job, but he still does visit his kids. He says he supports his kids Not a clue how he does that unless he gets money from TLC when his kids are on TV. (it is a new show, so I don't know how. I don't get him trying to get him trying to stop their 'specials' because Kate is making money from them too, TO SUPPORT THE FAMILY, BUT I DIGRESS). Anyhoo, even if the parent is not working, they are still supposed to see the child. But people like Dina poison the kids so the under 18s refuse, did Dianna do that too to her daughters?

  6. 6

    I wonder how many times before this picture was taken that she PURGED? I've heard the NOKIA & KODAK Theaters have PURGING STATIONS for the STARS to use…

  7. 7

    He makes sense

  8. 8

    I can't believe parents would even consider letting their children in an industry that requires BODY GUARDS & DETAILS and MAJOR HOME SECURITY SYSTEMS;



  9. 9

    The parents should simply come together and talk about Demi personally instead of walking around on eggshells.

  10. 10

    He makes sense in his statement, but maybe he is a great part of the problem. Maybe his absence is what makes Demi suffering more. He needs to stop talking and reflect. But more than that he needs to be there for Demi in this difficult time. Team Shut Up/Be Present

  11. malii says – reply to this


    wait….is he the next michael lohan? HHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA …this dad in hollywood…

  12. 12

    Don't forget Dopey punched another girl in the face.

  13. 13

    Michael Lohan 2.0

  14. 14

    Could he have been more contradictory?
    It wasn't my choice… it was my choice.
    I stayed out so I wouldn't be in the way.. I stayed out so they wouldn't think I'm a golddigger.
    a) he knows nothing about Demi and her issues and should certainly not be sharing his opinions about them
    and b) sounds like he has no idea what he's talking about even when it comes to himself.
    He should definitely drop it and stop talking to the press. Demi has enough going on right now. She doesn't need to be worrying about her ass of a dad telling people and her fans things that aren't true.

  15. 15

    so sad i love Demi :(

  16. 16

    Agreed with comment 2. I'm sick of the incessant finger pointing in regards to parenting - it's nobodies responsibility but the parents to raise their children - not the schools, not the government, not grandma or summer camps - MOMS AND DADS ACROSS THE NATION NEED TO PUT ON THEIR BIG GIRL AND BIG BOY PANTIES AND STOP RANDOMLY HAVING CHILDREN AND START RAISING THE ONES THEY HAVE.

    Perez, this is something you will NEVER get to understand. Lohan Dad syndrome is it's own thing. When you have a child, you literally have a piece of you walking around in the world. I can understand his concern. And is he wrong? Is Hollywood not sometimes a negative environment? It seems like he's just really worried about his daughter. It also doesn't seem like he's asking for anything from her.

  19. 19

    It's Michael Lohan Jr!!

  20. 20

    Damn she is a nice piece.
    I have been sleeping on this chick for way too long.

  21. 21

    Stirring up trouble again, I see Mario…Of course he has a right to speak up. Parents can't turn off their feelings and his daughter is in trouble…and he's right…it IS the industry (Gossip Rags, Celebrity Bloggers) who is to blame. I commend him for what he said, and also for being honest about not being involved as he should have been. Obviously, Demi's mom (and Disney) think so to, since they are gunning to silence him. He had only nice things to say about DISNEY and (Note to iloverickymartin), he's not shooting down Demi's mother or trying to make himself look good. So, to both of you….STFU.

  22. 22

    Just because he hasn't been in her life for whatever reason doesn't mean he Loves his daughter any less. No one really knows that families in and outs. I find nothing wrong with his statements. Someone asked and he said how he felt. He did say it had been "two" years they hadn't spoke not twenty! In other words he prior was in contacts wih her and in her life. She and the Mom probably told him to take a hike because he didnt approve with her going into show biz! Ya know like most good parents would do. I remember a time in my life when I wasnt talking to my dad that lasted about two years. I missed him everyday n he as well me. Sometimes families go threw stuff. Hopefully they'll get threw it and kiss and make up. I'm sure this is way of letting his daughter know that he still cares even if people feel he's going about it the wrong way. Who's to judge?

  23. 23

    i dont think he is coming across in a bad way in any of his, what 3, interviews. it's not like h's ragging on the the reporters on tv. it's 3 small clippets in which he has said the same in each, it's a bad industry for children - true. he couldn't made more effort to see them, as could they to him but he didnt want to come across gold digging - nothing wrong there. and that he doesn't blame anyone for it - and that is true.

  24. 24

    daddy lohan part 2…bet they'd get along reeallll well

  25. 25

    demis dad didn't say anything wrong! so why can't he talk about his won daughter? he's still her father…wether she wants it or not..

  26. 26


    youve caused her a good deal of pain, just let her be.
    your NOT helping.

    they wanted you to stfu for a reason.
    so respect your daughters painful time and let her heal. seeing since he caused most of her scars.

  27. 27

    the press should stop sticking the microphone in his face - then his opinions could truly be his own! He might have deserved the alienation (or maybe not) but it should be a private matter NOT all over the media - given the right opportunity he is gonna be MEGA VICTIM - just like Michael Lohan

  28. 28

    He should shut-up, just because if he keeps talking, the end result might not be too pretty. No one's saying that he's wrong to care about his kid, which he obviously does.

    But he's just gonna make things worse by talking to the media when he should be taking that time to make a stronger effort in reaching out to his daughter, because right now, her needs (not his need "to vent") is what's most important.

    He's not helping her by talking about the issue in the publicly.This is an issue that really should stay between the people involved and Demi's family as much as possible.

  29. 29

    I think he should stop talking for his own self-respect. Considering he is indeed estranged and probably knows as much about what happened as we do, he has no real reason to speak up.

  30. 30

    Truthfully, everyone's parents want to get in on it, Lohan's, Audriana's and YOUR mother Perez….you have your own mother on every page pushing her to answer sex questions…..

  31. 31

    We enjoy free speech in the United States….so, what's the problem?

  32. 32

    I don't seem him being in the wrong here. Coming from a person with an estranged father I want to ask you this - have you ever stopped to think that maybe SHE is the reason she doesn't have a relationship with her father? Maybe she doesn't want one?
