There won’t be any downtime for Demi Lovato once she’s released from Cedars- Sinai hospital after her scary OD- it’s straight to rehab for her! Lovato, who was suffering from extreme nausea and high fever earlier this week, remains in the hospital, but is expected to be released in the upcoming days. “Demi’s turned the corner and is doing much better,” a source said. “She will be released in the next few days and the plan is for her to go to rehab. She is starting to grasp the severity of what happened and that she almost died.” “She is scared and grateful to be alive,” the insider continues. “Her family hasn’t left her side and have consulted with several people to figure out what the best plan of action is. Everyone wants her to take it very seriously and she seems to be.” Lovato is agreeing to go to rehab because “she wants to make a statement to her fans, family and friends that she is strong and can recover.” “Demi knows she needs help,” the insider adds. “Her family has told her that this is the time to be a good example to her fans.” Demi had been in a “downward spiral” for months & most of those close to her were scared for her life. They all vowed to distance themselves from her if she didn’t agree to attend rehab.
