Dianna De La Garza
Shortly after news of the overdose first broke, sources quickly told news outlets Lovato's mom Dianna De La Garza was by her daughter's side.
According to sources close to the family, De La Garza was concerned about Lovato's recent relapse, but felt she could not address it with her, as the singer is the one paying the bills.
"Her mother's a very sweet person who has zero — when I say zero, she has zero say," the insider says of De La Garza's experiences with her daughter's previous downward spiral. "I've worked with a lot of kids. All those mothers [in Hollywood], become not-mothers. They become slaves to their kids."
However, sources say Lovato's family and closed ones are already looking at ways for the singer to seek treatment after she is released from the hospital.prevnext

Another person who has not left Lovato's side as she recovers is ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama.
The NCIS star, who dated Lovato for six years before the couple split in June 2016, has been photographed entering Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles several times during the singer's stay.
"Wilmer is completely devastated and he still loves Demi and it was just a matter of scheduling and time that they needed to make a romantic relationship work. He was not aware that her issues were this severe and intense at this time," a source told Us Weekly. "She's been honest with him about her relapse, as she has with her family, friends, fans and the entire public, especially with her new song, but he didn't think it was this severe and that she would be struggling so much and have a situation that had these repercussions."
"Even after they broke up, they continued to be very good friends," a source told Entertainment Tonight. "They have mutual admiration for each other and he has and will always believe in her. He's watched her fall and has seen her rise."
"[Wilmer] was aware she was going through a bumpy patch because she was forthright with him when she relapsed," the source added. "But he did not anticipate this."prevnext
