Demi Lovato recently responded to the details Joe Jonas dropped in his recent essay.
Fans of the middle Jonas brother learned quite a bit about the singer, including details about the times he spent smoking pot and getting drunk. Joe also dished on Lovato’s trip to rehab and how he was “living a lie” during the time they spent together.
While some people might take great offense to an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend dishing about their private life, Demi Lovato seemed to take the whole thing in stride. According to Us Weekly, the former Sonny with a Chance star responded to the essay on Twitter.
“Love you brother. Family and friends forever,” she wrote. She’s a bigger person than most of us.
In addition to dating Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas also spent some time doing drugs with the X Factor judge. In the revealing essay he wrote for New York Magazine, the singer said it was Demi and former Disney darling Miley Cyrus who talked him into trying marijuana for the very first time.
“The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. They kept saying, ‘Try it! Try it!’ so I gave it a shot, and it was all right. I don’t even smoke weed that often anymore,” Jonas wrote.
According to Yahoo!, Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato started dating after appearing in Camp Rock for the Disney Channel. Since fans loved seeing the two together, they decided to try out a real-life relationship. Unfortunately, this coincided with her trip to rehab.
“I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn’t express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect. Things kept building up, and Demi ended up punching a girl in the face on a plane, because she thought the girl was blaming her for something. Everybody gasped, and the girl just started bleeding. That’s when her team and her family told her, ‘You need to go into rehab.’ I remember being in South America, and fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that we kicked her off the tour, and they hated on us for it.”
