BlindGossip Called Out Demi Lovato, But Her Rep Denies She’s In Rehab [Updated]

Update: Demi’s reps have released several more statements to various outlets, including Perez Hilton, saying, “The story was fabricated. It is completely untrue.” Furthermore, BlindGossip added this update after speaking with Demi’s team:

Demi Lovato’s PR team has asked BG to let its readers know that, as of today, 1/25/2012, Demi Lovato is not a resident at an in-patient treatment center. They will not confirm her sobriety and will not be releasing any statements about her sobriety or her personal health. Demi will be publicly seen and photographed out in Los Angeles later today when she goes to a medical appointment.

We’ve updated our post to reflect these changes and Demi’s current situation. I’d like to point out, however, that the most interesting part of the story was not whether Demi was back in rehab, but the idea of a gossip site directly addressing the stars it’s writing about. I’ll be curious to see if more sites pick up that method in the future.

Now Demi Lovato quitting Twitter doesn’t seem so sudden: BlindGossip reports that the troubled Disney starlet has checked into Passages, a treatment center in Malibu, to get help for alcohol abuse and cocaine. But the most interesting facet of the story is that BlindGossip, a site that primarily publishes blind items about Hollywood stars, claims that they helped to get Demi back in rehab. [tagbox tag= "rehab"]

One of their blind items, published on January 19, took the unexpected tack of directly addressing the drug-addled starlet in question. After running through the relevant details about the actress spouting a sober message while doing coke at parties, BlindGossip wrote:

Let’s cut to the chase, and get more direct: Look, we know that you and your friends are reading this. It is absolute madness for you to think that this will end well. You are a beautiful and talented girl, but you ARE going to lose your fans and your career and probably your life if you keep this up.

Remember how upset one of your siblings was when someone picked on them? Do you realize how much more emotionally destroyed they would be if you actually died? You should think about that, because that is exactly where you are heading right now. We don’t care if you lie to people about what your problems are. We don’t care if you pretend that you are going on vacation. Just get yourself back into rehab (or treatment, if it makes you feel better to call it that), and get well. Now.

As they explained, they knew that Demi and her friends read BlindGossip religiously, so they figured that the best move was to call her out. And it worked: Demi was allegedly furious about them pulling her sister into it — see below — but it also got her friends to forward the blind item on to her parents/management.

Readers first started to catch on that it was Demi because of photos that surfaced the week prior of her and friends partying at Beachers Madhouse. Then there’s the sibling angle. Fans pointed out young actress Madison de la Garza, Demi’s half-sister through their mom. Madison plays one of Gabrielle Solis’ (Eva Longoria) overweight children on Desperate Housewives; in real life, she’s been bullied for her weight. She’s also appeared on two of Demi’s projects: Princess Protection Program and playing young Demi on Sonny with a Chance.

However, it should be noted that Demi’s rep has apparently denied the entire story, according to GossipCop. But we’re not sure if we can entirely believe the rep, since the statement is startlingly casual for a celebrity story: “It is a crock of shit.” That’s the kind of thing we’d expect from Demi’s Twitter… if she were still tweeting.

Update: Demi did her first interview since this fiasco, with MuchMusic… but she doesn’t address the rumors here, nor that never-ending cocaine allegation. What gives?

      There have been 3 statements by her rep the one you said plus:

      “The story was fabricated. It is completely untrue.”

      RumorFix reached out to Lovato’s rep who tells us, “completely untrue!”

      So there are more professional statements if you’d like to say. Can you blame the rep for getting mad & saying that though if they are angry at people spreading a rumor when she is probably stressed enough.

      Also if she was in rehab don’t you think she would have canceled her Performance that she is doing in Chile on February 4th. I mean that is only 10 days away.

    • MusicGirl

      Oh also another statement to add to the pile.

      “Demi’s team confirmed it’s untrue.”

      Actually its according to gossipcop AND Perez Hilton. Also the Rep not stated that it is a “Crock of shit ” (which isn’t THAT shocking to hear from a rep. YOu should hear some of the stuff Chris Brown’s rep has stated to certain gossip rags) but they also said “Demi’s team confirmed it’s untrue.” And from other numerous sources. Also this came from BLINDGOSSIP.COM really dude that should be your first hint that this story is BS. THREE EXCLUSIVE STATEMENTS to THREE different gossip sites as well as an MTV statement, confirmation from Demi’s close friend AND former cast member Tiffany THORTON who STATED this was a bs RUMOR and you still say “we’re not sure if we can entirely believe this rep…derp!” are you fucking retarded?

      “However, it should be noted that Demi’s rep has apparently denied the entire story, according to GossipCop. ”
      This statement is wrong. It should be according to gossipcop, mtv, perezhilton, rumorfix…really guys…do your homework.

      “But we’re not sure if we can entirely believe the rep, since the statement is startlingly casual for a celebrity story:”
      Lol are you serious? Who wrote this crap? An idiot from anythingdisney? One of her detractors? What the hell do you expect this rep to say “the story of this thing is a complete and utter fabrication of the gossip community. ” it IS a crock of **** and they are stating so. Its the truth. Who cares HOW they state it?
      ““It is a crock of shit.” That’s the kind of thing we’d expect from Demi’s Twitter… if she were still tweeting.”
      And now you can expect that from disgruntled reps who are sick of answering the same qustion over and over again to douchey stupid gossip sites like this one. Oh and and did I forget to mention you got this from BLINDGOSSIP.COM? Lol really dude, these guys are the Media Take Out for Blind Gossip. Seriously Natalie Sutter, go back to journalism school kid.

      You really must be new to the world of celebrity gossip Natalie because any idiot would tell you that blindgossip will call out people directly. It isnt the first time they have done so and it wont be the last. this is obviously a PLUG to get more READERS to their site. I mean A BI about Demi, then REAVEALING that Demi reads their bull and THEN having them put an update up after people are saying that they are full of crap? You’re so ignorant kid.

      “Now Demi Lovato quitting Twitter doesn’t seem so sudden: BlindGossip reports that the troubled Disney starlet has checked into Passages, a treatment center in Malibu, to get help for alcohol abuse and cocaine.

      Lol that was your hint right there that this report was hogwash. That they shamelessly plug their site as if someone like Demi Lovato would read these blindgossip articles as if she had nothing better to do. Seriously Natalie? Are you this stupid that you would BELIEVE Demi Lovato would spend her days reading an article about her that slams her publically? And that they claim to have helped get Demi BACK in rehab even though her reps, best friends and a former cast mate has stated OTHERWISE since this news broke out? Are you mental? lol.

      “As they explained, they knew that Demi and her friends read BlindGossip religiously, so they figured that the best move was to call her out. And it worked: Demi was allegedly furious about them pulling her sister into it — see below — but it also got her friends to forward the blind item on to her parents/management.”

      Of course they are going to say Demi and her friends read blindgossip religiously. They’re trying to garner hits. I am willing to bet that Demi didn’t even VISIT this site until YOU mentioned it which is why her reps decided to call bull spit out on the morons over there peddling out this nonsense not to mention that bogus update which is worded cryptically. “As of this date she is NOT in rehab?” lol come on Natalie, if you are dumb enough to believe this bull dinky then I got a bridge to sell you.

      Seriously kid…you need to kill yourself for your stupidity. We don’t need to waste govt funds on your ignorance.

      Not only that ryan SEACREST proved you wrong lol. You have to be an idiot to get proven wrong by that funbag.

      Translation, we totally shot ourselves in the foot with this one, but instead of taking responsibility and actually owning up to a BLATANT mistake that we made, we’re gonna back peddle and say that Demi’s PR team told us that she is not in a rehab center. Despite the fact that we made this our HEADLINING ARTICLE. In other words, forget everything that we said earlier and pretend like we never said anything at all. We’ll just make up some BS statement about her reps telling us that she is out as of now despite the fact that they fervently denied THE SECOND that we reported this. Oh and lets forget the fact that her former cast mate Tiffany Thorton even stated that she wasn’t in rehab as well as a bunch of different REP sources. DERP!!!!!

    • James

      “Demi will be publicly seen and photographed out in Los Angeles later today when she goes to a medical appointment.”

      Yeah? Alright then were are those pics blindgossip? Oh wait…they don’t exist? Oh wait this is another lie that you are shoveling in front of us in order to backpeddle your way out of this? Oh wait…you suck at logic? lol Fail bro. epic fail.

      “They will not confirm her sobriety and will not be releasing any statements about her sobriety or her personal health.”

      I guess blind gossip.com doesn’t like to check their homework cause they issues this statement to perezhilton.com “The story was fabricated. It is completely untrue.” so if the story was completely fabricated, that means anything dealing with this blind item, the alleged relapse the supposed new rehab stint? It’s “completely untrue” morons.

      She didnt address the rumors he because she already addressed the rumors several times. Via her twitter when she tweeted to not believe the hype and through he reps as well as friends. The question is, what gives with your chronic stupidity?

      ” But the most interesting facet of the story is that BlindGossip, a site that primarily publishes blind items about Hollywood stars, claims that they helped to get Demi back in rehab.”

      Only blindgossip would be stupid enough to put their own site for a shameless plug in their own bi. That should have been your first hint that this entir story made by blindgossip was nothing but hogwash. First off no one in he right mind would believe that a gossip site helped someone back into rehab. You have to be a moron to think that was true. Second thy claim that Demi reads their site religiously? Lol which celebrity would even glance at that site for entertainment purposes? You have to be a grade a moron to think that any celebrity would take a gander at blindgossip.com for mere recreational purposes. Then again it’s a known fact that the average celebrity gossiped is a moron. You should be lucky that I am gracing you with my intelligence.

      “Update: Demi’s reps have released several more statements to various outlets, including Perez Hilton, saying, “The story was fabricated. It is completely untrue.” Furthermore, BlindGossip added this update after speaking with Demi’s team:

Demi will be publicly seen and photographed out in Los Angeles later today when she goes to a medical appointment.”"

      First off I doubt that Demi’s team would SAY that to any blindgossip site. No one ANOUNCES that they are going to give paps a photo op when they go to a medical appointment. This is just another example of blindgossip’s way of trying to feed bull crap the mass idiots who reads their BS.

      I mean seriously, who talks like that “as of today she is not at an inpatient treatment center and they wont confirm her sobriety.” the article wasnt about her SOBRIETY its about her being in a TC. and Guess what? She wasn’t. There was no proof that she was. If she WAS in a TC she wouldnt have performed at her concert. Dumb ass.

      “We’ve updated our post to reflect these changes and Demi’s current situation.

I’ll be curious to see if more sites pick up that method in the future.”

      But there was no CHANGES in Demi’s situation. The situation remained the same. Blind gossip blowing some up people’s butts, you guys being the morons that you are trying to back peddle your way out of a situation after being made fools by Demi’s team, also you think this is the only site to DIRECTETLY address a star? Lol you still little gossip blogger. Silly little stupid gossip blogger. You must be new to the world of celebrity gossip. Either that or you’re an idiot.

      “Now Demi Lovato quitting Twitter doesn’t seem so sudden: BlindGossip reports that the troubled Disney starlet has checked into Passages, a treatment center in Malibu, to get help for alcohol abuse and cocaine.

      Yeah no self respecting person would EVER admit them selves into passages. Thats like the most PUBLIC TC place out there. And they certainly wouldnt TELL people that they are in passages. Also no site in the world would shamlessly plug them and say “oh we got Demi back into rehab” lol that would be career suicide of Demi admitted that. The fact that Demi’s denied all claims of such shows how full of crap BG is. Then again you guys seem to worship crap like that.

      “One of their blind items, published on January 19, took the unexpected tack of directly addressing the drug-addled starlet in question.”

      Oooh Drug addled starlet? Well there goes your credibility. Or whatever is left of it. Frankly this shows how bias and stupid you guys are. For a supposed “gossip site” you tend to take things personally. Whats the matter? Did Demi’s team pursue a lawsuit on your idiots and made you guys look like morons? Don’t take it so hard guys. Its not that difficult to discredit crushable. The comment section alone is full of people thinking that you guys are laughable at best. Looks you have more of a personal problem with Demi Lovato. Seriously guys, first rule in writing gossip, leave your idiotic emotions at the door. That way it won’t be so hard to discredit you. Then again you guys make it easy to do so lol. This one sentence alone kinda makes you look stupid. I guess by your rule your article can’t be trusted right?

      “As they explained, they knew that Demi and her friends read BlindGossip religiously, so they figured that the best move was to call her out. And it worked: Demi was allegedly furious about them pulling her sister into it — see below — but it also got her friends to forward the blind item on to her parents/management.”

      1. No celebrity would ever be caught reading blindgossip. Hell no self respecting person in the world would be caught reading about people that they would work with in the future. So the fact that they shamelessly PLUG their site and say “Hey Demi Lovato reads our crappy articles” shows just how ignorant they are. Only a true blue IDIOT would believe that Demi Lovato would read blindgossip. And ANY smart person would see this as a shameless plug.

      2. Someone in your close knit circle must have given your grammar teacher a blow job. Because you obviously didn’t learn to read and write in a proper fashion. Seriously how can you say there was “confirmation” that blindgossip got Demi into rehab and that “it worked” yet contradict yourself and say “Duh she ALLEGEDLY was upset at the blind item. Duh…” Allegedly means LACK OF PROOF it means the OPPOSITE of confirmation. Not to big on general grammar are you Natlie Zutter?

      “However, it should be noted that Demi’s rep has apparently denied the entire story, according to GossipCop. But we’re not sure if we can entirely believe the rep, since the statement is startlingly casual for a celebrity story: “It is a crock of shit.” That’s the kind of thing we’d expect from Demi’s Twitter… if she were still tweeting.”

      So because a rep statement is “Casual” that means that its untrue? There is nothing “professional” about this article you write. Most gossip bloggers don’t make their obvious and bia hatred for a teen star they don’t know stick out so vehemently in their bloggs, yet you did and I think its safe to say thats more “casual” than anything ANY rep has said. So by that logic I could say that your story is not entierely believable. Congrats to you crushable. You fail.

      “Update: Demi did her first interview since this fiasco, with MuchMusic… but she doesn’t address the rumors here, nor that never-ending cocaine allegation. What gives?”

      Didn’t you already SAY that her reps issued statements and that she tweeted to people to NOT believe “the hype” that means she DID address the rumors and the “never ending cocaine allegation” You suck again Natalie. Please enroll yourself in a basic reading course. I just feel bad for you at this point.
