Demi Lovato recently said she’s ready to being her “next chapter” with new manager Scooter Braun and on Tuesday (May 14) she took some time out to thank two of the people she said have helped get her through some difficult times. “Just me and my best friends living our best lives,” she wrote alongside a selfie with friends Matthew Scott Montgomery (No, That’s Okay. I’m Good) and rapper Sirah. “Thank you for never leaving me in my darkest moments, for always drying my tears.. even when they’re from watching Moana.”
#ThreeCourseMeal… just me and my best friends living our best lives.. Thank you for never leaving me in my darkest moments, for always drying my tears.. even when they’re from watching Moana.. thank you for being loyal, honest and so grateful for every little thing.. like crying because we swam with fish/sharks/stingray and coral reef. I’m so lucky to be best friends with two incredible souls who are so talented and creative because it inspires me daily. And you’re so supportive of me and every little thing I do.. You’ve traveled across the country to visit me and stayed with me at my house for days on end when I’m struggling to make sure I’m okay but most importantly you never abandoned me like others did when I was going through shit.. you were there to listen, without judgement and only love and I can never fully express what that means to me. You’re the greatest friends I’ve EVER had and our future together is so bright. I love you both more than you can imagine!! Thank you for this past week — @sirahsays @matthew_scott_montgomery ps. I’m both yalls biggest fans ————
Lovato also thanked the pair for being “loyal, honest and so grateful for every little thing.. like crying because we swam with fish/sharks/stingray and coral reef.” The twenty six year-old singer said her pals have not only traveled across the country to visit her and stay at her house when she was struggling, but more importantly, for not abandoning her when “others did when I was going through shit.”
The comment on the pic, taken during the trio’s recent trip to Bora Bora, touched Sirah as well, who commented, “Sorry not sorry I’m sobbing like coral reef. Thank you for everything you are and do. I’m so grateful to you and for you and so beyond proud of the work you’ve done.” Over the weekend, Lovato announced that Justin Bieber/Ariana Grande manager Scooter Braun will be her manager going forward.
The singer was hospitalized last July following an overdose and has been open about her journey of recovery, writing in March — on what would have been her seven-year sober anniversary — that she has faith in the process. “Today I would’ve had 7 years sober,” she wrote on March 15. “I don’t regret going out because I needed to make those mistakes but I must never forget that’s exactly what they were: mistakes.”
Lovato, who has fought addiction, mental illness and eating disorders over the years, added that she was also, “Grateful that AA/NA never shuts the door on you no matter how many times you have to start your time over. I didn’t lose 6 years; I’ll always have that experience but now I just get to add to that time with a new journey and time count. If you’ve relapsed and are afraid to get help again, just know it’s possible to take that step towards recovery. If you’re alive today, you can make it back. You’re worth it.”
