A source claims the pop star is spending time at a sober living facility in Los Angeles.

Demi Lovato has reportedly left rehab and been spotted in Los Angeles

Singer Demi Lovato is reportedly out of rehab, having achieved 90 days of sobriety following her near-fatal overdose in July. 

“She just got back to LA a couple days ago,” a source told People. “She seems to be doing well so far.”

The singer was spotted over the weekend out and about in Los Angeles. On Saturday she was seen at Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills with clothing designer Henry Levy.

TMZ reports that the pair were smiling and happy, holding hands in the restaurant. 

According to E! News, a source says that Lovato is "also spending time at a sober living facility, where she has a great support system."

The source adds that the singer is "taking it slowly and getting back to life one day at a time. She's not rushing to figure out where she's going to live permanently."

On July 24, Lovato was found unresponsive in her home, reportedly following a night with her dealer taking “aftermarket” pills. She spend two weeks in the hospital before heading to inpatient treatment at an undisclosed facility.

Last week, the 26-year-old singer’s mother, Dianna De La Garza, said that Lovato had reached a recovery milestone.

“She has 90 days,” De La Garza said. “I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it’s work. It’s very hard. It’s not easy, and there are no shortcuts.”

During the same interview, De La Garza revealed that she knew her daughter’s sobriety was slipping even before she learned about the overdose. 

“I knew that she wasn’t sober. I didn’t know what she was doing because she doesn’t live with me and she’s 26,” she said. On the day that Lovato was hospitalized, De La Garza said she received an alarming text that said, “I just saw on TMZ and I’m sorry.”

“Before I could get to TMZ, I got the phone call from her assistant and she said, ‘We’re at the hospital.’ So then I knew, OK, she’s not gone. She’s here,” De La Garza recalled. “And I said, ‘What’s going on?’ And the words that I heard are just a nightmare for any parent: ‘Demi overdosed.’” 

Lovato has been open about her struggles with mental illness and substance abuse in the past. However, her social media accounts have been quiet since she posted in August about her relapse. 

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction,” she wrote. “What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.”  

She continued, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”
