The singer and actress Demi Lovato penned a personal letter for Vogue and opened up about her “daddy issues.”
Apart from the mental issues, lockdown period, and ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, Lovato wrote referring to her late father Patrick Lovato and thanked him, as a part of improving mental health.
As might remember, Lovato, who engaged recently with actor Max Ehrich, said during an interview in 2015 that her late father was abusive and mean, adding that:
“I was very conflicted when he passed because he was abusive. He was mean, but he wanted to be a good person, and he wanted to have his family. When my mom married my stepdad, he still had this huge heart where he would say, ‘I’m so glad Eddie’s taking care of you and doing the job that I wish I could do.’”
In the heartfelt letter, she stated that she was ready to leave her daddy issues in 2020. The 28-year-old singer wrote by mentioning this year was quietly different:
“There was the anniversary of my father’s death, which is a couple of days after Father’s Day a really hard time of year for me. But this year, something happened.”
Lovato, who had a complicated relationship with her father until he passed away in 2013, continued:
“I wrote a gratitude letter to him, thanking him for all the things that I got from him. It was this beautiful release of all the resentments I had toward him. I realized, for the first time, that I wasn’t going to have daddy issues for the rest of my life.”
The ‘I Love Me’ singer also thanked Vogue to allow her to write freely, via an Instagram post.
