So far, fans of the star have supported the singer with more than 255,000 likes and 32,000 retweets.
Lovato has been open about her past struggles with drugs, bipolar disorder and a battle with bulimia, and recently came clean about her struggle to stay sober in a new interview with Billboard Magazine, where she confessed that she almost relapsed at the 2016 Met Gala.
“I had a terrible experience,” Lovato told the mag. “This one celebrity was a complete bitch and was miserable to be around. It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink.”
After being trigged that night at the gala, the star confessed that she texted her manager and immediately left the event and headed to a 10 p.m. Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
“I changed my clothes, but I still had my diamonds on — millions of dollars of diamonds on in an AA meeting,” Lovato said. “And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala — fake and sucking the fashion industry’s d—.”
In October, Lovato released a personal documentary on YouTube detailing her road to sobriety. The 25-year-old singer admitted that she feels better when she can hold herself accountable and can be honest and open about her struggle.
“When I started talking about my sobriety — I can never be seen at a club getting wasted,” she said. “If I relapse, it shows my fans it’s OK to relapse. And I can’t do that.”
