Demi Lovato Clapped Back At A Fan Who Called Her Team 'Rotten'
Demi Lovato isn't here for anyone judging her staff.
She may be out of rehab and working hard on her sobriety, but one thing about Demi Lovato that hasn't changed is her ability to call people out when it's warranted.
On Thursday, an Instagram fan account posted a Twitter status from a fan who claimed that Demi's inner circle weren't a good influence on the 'Sober' songstress.
“It was completely unfair to fire Dani, she’s one of the few who really cares about Demi’s health and has been helping her for 3 years, she’s surrounded by people who care only about her money and she does not see it,” the tweet read, while the caption slammed Demi's team as "rotten."

According to screenshots obtained by @CommentsByCelebs, Demi wasn't having it, and hit back to the poster saying, “You have no idea what you’re talking about,” as well as, “True friends don’t do interviews about you when you OD.”
When followers then assumed that the singer was talking about back up dancer Dani Vital, she later clarified that she was not, writing, “I’m not talking about Dani Vitale.”

It would make sense, however, if she was referring to former trainer Danielle Martin, who gave a telling interview to Radar just last week in which she revealed she was no longer speaking with the singer.
“I lost my job for speaking up for her, to be honest,” Martin explained. “Pretty sad. I did nothing but empower her. Nothing bad to say. The people around her I’m sure were happy to run to her. They told her I was taking the situation and making it all about me. I’d never do that. Not ever. I was standing up for her. That’s all."
She also seemed to share the sentiment that her current staff weren't the best influence on her, saying, “The jobs of people around her are dependent on her issues. I empowered her above those issues,” Martin explained. “I was a threat to them. This is how I see it. She told me before that certain people would always try to divide. She didn’t understand it and I saw it clearly. I always told her ‘you’re the boss, period.'”
Vitale also spoke out when Demi was hospitalised after fans began to blame the dancer for the overdose.
“I have NEVER touched nor even SEEN a drug in my entire life. I DO NOT DO DRUGS, nor would I ever encourage, or supply them to anyone I love," she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post, adding, “The circulation of an UNTRUE story on the internet yanked my life, my reputation, my name and everything I have worked so hard to stand for, out from underneath me."
It seems that the friend Demi is alluding to isn't the only one she's cut off. Rapper Iggy Azalea was also unfollowed by the star after she revealed in an interview to ET in July that she knew about her friend's relapse.
"I had known about it, as a close friend," Azalea revealed. "So I had really wanted for her to be the one to tell people that. And I worried a lot, as her friend, that something was going to leak or somebody would somehow take that and use it negatively against her, or to make her seem like she's got a secret."
"It's not my business to say to my friend, 'You need to fess up,'" she continued. "But as a friend, you worry and you're like, 'Oh, my God, my friend, she has this thing that people can use against her and I really want her to own it.' And she did!"
Demi also seems to have unfollowed childhood friend Selena Gomez -- but no one knows why.
Fans have speculated that Sel's Elle magazine interview in September could have been the catalyst -- though she didn't seem to say anything negative about Demi.
“All I’m saying is, I reached out personally. I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was 7. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say,” Selena mentioned during the interview.
