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?

Demi Lovato's Family NOT Happy With Her Dad

Filed under: Legal MattersDisneyDemi Lovato

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?
