Backup Dancer Pens Letter To Fans As Speculation Swirls Following Demi Lovato Overdose

After Demi Lovato relapsed with cocaine and Opioids and was found unconscious from an apparent overdose, fans weren’t willing to let the incident go without placing the blame on somebody.

While the singer recovers from her overdose, battling complications from infections but expected to make a full recovery, her most devoted fans started to point fingers at one of her backup dancers. 

Dani Vitale has been working with the former Disney Channel star for nearly 10 years and fans put her at the top of their list of suspects. Unwilling to let those rumors take off, however, Vitale took to Twitter on Sunday night with an open letter tweet. 

“I care about Demi just like all of you do,” the open letter starts. “I have not said anything about this situation until now because her recovery has been of the most importance.”

Vitale didn’t make the entire letter about herself and accusations that she was involved in the singer’s relapse, but she was sure to clear the air. “I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you.”

For the most part, people responded positively to Vitale’s open letter.

Unfortunately for Vitale, however, not everyone was as forgiving. What she did leave out from her open letter was that Lovato was at Vitale’s birthday party.

Some feel that putting Lovato in an environment with addictive substances puts some of the blame of Vitale, which creates a discussion on willpower and addiction

Though finding someone to blame may be a priority for Lovato’s sincerest fans, what’s most important is her recovery. While she’s still hospitalized and making her recovery, whether or not she will attend rehab still hasn’t been confirmed.
