Tragic news hit Demi Lovato and her family this past weekend. The 20-year-old singer’s biological father Patrick Lovato died on June 22, 2013. At the time our story was reported, few details were available regarding his death. Demi’s older sister Dallas tweeted: “Rest in peace daddy I love you..”
Demi had not spoken out about her father’s death until Sunday on night on Twitter, when she posted the following message: “I feel so humbled to have had so much support from my fans, friends, family and complete strangers.. God bless you all, thank you so much ❤” The singer had a difficult relationship with her father, who separated from the family when she was four.
