Noah Cyrus, Meghan Trainor and More Support Demi Lovato at 2018 Teen Choice Awards
The entertainment industry continued to voice their support for Demi Lovato during the 2018 Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Sunday (Aug. 12). Several stars, including Noah Cyrus, Meghan Trainor, and Lucy Hale, spoke to ET about Lovato and her strength in the aftermath of her apparent overdose.
Cyrus praised her childhood friend's honesty and offered her support. “I've known Demi since I was a kid -- like really young kid -- and I love her more than anything in the world, so I'm rooting her on so much and I love how honest she's been with everybody,” Cyrus said. “I love you, Demi, I'm rooting for you and I'm praying for you. We're like childhood family, you know?"
Meghan Trainor also sent good vibes to the struggling singer. “We love you, Demi,” she said. “You're so strong. We know you'll come back stronger than ever and I can't wait for her return.”
“I have spoken with her and honestly, I just send so much love," Jauregui said. “We all go through our own struggles in life, and I feel like it's incredibly brave of her to be so open about it. I think being famous [makes it] hard to go through things like that -- having everybody in your business is obviously invasive, so I just send her love and healing from whatever place I can. She knows I love her.”
Lucy Hale of Pretty Little Liars commented on Lovato's strength and how inspiring she is. “I've always respected how open she is about her struggles,” said Hale. “I think she's incredible. She's strong and mainly inspiring and I know she can overcome it. She's a strong person.”
Nick Cannon, who co-hosted the show, praised Lovato for how she handled the relapse and sent prayers. “I commend her strength,” said Cannon. “Taking an opportunity like this, where most people would be judging you, [and being] out there in the public and embrace it. None of us are perfect and we all need help and we all have certain burdens and she's dealing with hers in public and I pray and wish her nothing but good energy and recovery.”
Lovato has reportedly left her in-patient rehab for additional treatment in Chicago.
