Earlier this month, it was announced that Demi Lovato would be taking time at a rehabilitation center outside of California after being hospitalized after a drug overdose.
However, while the singer is taking time nurture a solid recover, her home was on the list as a target for a group of thieves looking to take advantage of an empty mansion. According to TMZ, a crew of burglars was arrested shortly after it was revealed that Lovato would be checking into rehab.
According to law enforcement sources, officers found electronic communication about the plans. LAPD has reportedly added extra patrols around Lovato’s home while she’s away. Other sources indicate that the thieves weren’t particularly targeting celebrities, but that Demi’s home was just one target on the list.
At the moment, Demi’s location is at an undisclosed facility, but according to TMZ, it is “one of the nation’s leading facilities for addiction.” This most recent incident was the latest in a string since a relapse that took place in June, after six years of sobriety.
“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction,” Lovato said in a statement following her overdose. “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 … I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery … I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side.”
