Let's All Try to Stay Out of Demi Lovato's Business for a While

Demi Lovato would really love it if strangers could maybe stop selling bullshit stories about her to tabloids.

Lovato’s overdose during the summer and subsequent treatment became a national obsession, with many outlets blaming backup dancer Dani Vitale for her relapse. On December 21, Lovato tweeted that she’s doing much better after a 90-day stay in rehab. But the tweets also suggest that the desire to know more about what really happened has created a boom industry around fabricated insights into her story, which has, in turn, made Lovato an outsider to a narrative that should belong to her:

Lovato says that she’d very much like to be the bearer of information about her recovery from now on.

Granted, I have not thought of Danielle Staub since that other brunette housewife threw a table at her (apparently I am in the minority on this), but her ex-husband (a person I have also never heard of until today) sounds awful:

Staub, 56, reported in her filing that Caffrey, 66, treated her with “extreme cruelty” in multiple capacities, including “repeatedly video and audio recording [her] without her knowledge during sex,” saying: “Plaintiff exercised control by threatening to expose it to the public unless the defendant did exactly what the plaintiff asked.”

Aside from trying to blackmail her with revenge porn, he also apparently made incest jokes about her daughters?

“Plaintiff referred to Defendant’s relationship with her daughters as ‘a lesbian affair,’ purposefully to hurt Defendant by referencing incest and embarrass her about her childhood abuse,” she further alleged of his treatment of her and her daughters. “Plaintiff utilized disparaging, offensive, and threatening language toward Defendant’s children, specifically telling them to ‘leave [his] house’ and ‘get the f–k out and don’t come back.’

Caffrey responded to the filing with a big “nuh-uh,” and says that he supported his wife by comparing her to Lady Gaga? OK.

But he claims, “She’s in a panic because I didn’t drop the divorce… She’s like a squirrel trapped and she’s destroying everything.”
