Demi Lovato's Father Passes Away

Demi Lovato's Father Passes Away

Sad news for Demi Lovato and her family – her father Patrick Lovato has passed away.

The 20-year-old singer’s 25-year-old sister Dallas Lovato tweeted the sad news earlier today.

Demi had a strained relationship with her father, which she chronicled in her song “For the Love of a Daughter” on her Unbroken album.

As of right now, the cause of Patrick‘s death is unknown. However, Patrick was reportedly battling throat cancer in recent years.

Demi was last spotted at The X Factor‘s press conference Thursday (June 20) in New York City.

“Thank you all for the outpouring of love and prayers. Y’all are amazing!” Dianna De La Garza, Demi‘s mom and Patrick‘s ex-wife, wrote on Twitter after the news broke.

JJJ sends our deepest condolences to Demi, Dallas, and the rest of the Lovato family.

    so today is the day we pretend Demi was close to her dad? i bet she isn’t fully affected by his death. i mean ‘shouldn’t come back’ was for him wasn’t it. condolences to the people that REALLY cared about him.

    I’ll definitely be praying for Demi and her family. Just because Demi didn’t have a perfect relationship with her father doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about him or isn’t affected by his death. He is her father and no one can change that.
