Okay, Demi Lovato may have been drinking and doing drugs, too




The story so far about Demi Lovato is that she has eating and cutting issues, culminating in a freakout in which she allegedly punched a backup dancer for telling on her about partying, resulting in her dropping out of the Jonas Bros. tour and checking into a treatment center. You knew it was coming, but now there are rumors that oh hey, she's big-time in drugs and booze, too.

Brian Payne, a college student in Texas, says he saw Demi hitting the cocaine pretty hard at a party they both attended last December: "She was doing line after line like a pro -- and she was 17 at the time," he tells Life & Style. "I just remember her doing it as if she had been doing it for a long time. It didn't seem like something new to her."

That doesn't quite support the narrative the glossy is offering, though, so they also quoted an unnamed source so they could totally make up stuff, too.

"Demi's been on a tear lately. She'll chug booze straight from the bottle," the source says. Thankfully her parents were quick to act when they finally realized their 18-year-old was acting like an adult idiot. "They overheard one of the dancers talking about it and freaked out. They heard Demi was drinking, but the news that her partying was getting out of control shocked them -- and they confronted her immediately."

Stop the presses -- you mean to tell us a musical personality thrust into fame at a young age may have resorted to drinking the alcohol and drugs that were no doubt in ample supply all around her? That's simply impossible. We say good day, sir!
