Demi Lovato was hurt that she wasn’t invited to any of Nick Jonas’s weddings

27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards
Demi Lovato is close with Nick Jonas. She went on tour with him just two years ago and they’ve known each other since they were child actors. They were never romantic that we know of, but she used to date his brother, Joe. Nick even said a couple of years ago that Demi is the third person he calls for advice after his dad and his brother, Joe, and that she advised him to dump his last girlfriend, Olivia Culpo. I guess they weren’t as close in the past years, after Nick started dating Priyanka Chopra, because Nick didn’t even invite Demi to the weddings. (You know why I’m using weddings instead of the singular form. They had three huge receptions that we know about. There was a choreographed dance number and their wedding lasted five DAYS.) You would think Nick would consider Demi, but nope. Here’s what a source told US:

They’ve been pals since their Disney Channel days, but Demi Lovato “wasn’t invited” to Nick Jonas’ December 1 wedding to Priyanka Chopra, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “Demi was upset,” says the source. “It broke her heart.”

The couple’s lavish nuptials took place over five days in Jodhpur, India, one month after Lovato, 26, left the rehab facility where she had been recovering from her July 24 drug overdose. Jonas, also 26, voiced his support for the “Sober” singer at the time of the tragedy: “Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi,” he wrote on Twitter. “All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well. She is a fighter.”

Lovato currently does not follow Jonas on Instagram. Even so, the source notes, “she wishes him and Priyanka the best.”

Maybe this is one of those cases where Demi just got out of rehab and they thought they were thinking of her feelings by not inviting her. But they should have asked her anyway! Can you imagine seeing your close friend have three huge wedding receptions and you weren’t invited? I’m sure some of you have similar stories. It surely happens all the time. People see Instagram photos of their friends’ huge weddings and wonder why they weren’t invited. It’s got to make you feel bad, I don’t blame her for talking to US through a source.

Us is also reporting that Demi is happy in her new relationship, with clothing designer Henry Levy, whom she met in rehab a few years ago and reconnected with recently. A source tells them Demi is “totally head over heels” for Henry and that she’s “happy, healthy, sober, eating well and working out religiously.” I hope this lasts for her and that if it doesn’t, it doesn’t jeopardize her sobriety. The new guy does seem like a good influence, but she could be alone for a minute.

    Oh my god be alone for a full MINUTE AND A HALF. How do you start a new relationship while you’re still walking your way out of a major major crisis? I don’t get it.

    I do understand though that if you have a dear friend who is an addict you might distance yourself when that person is using or recovering like she is. I had to not invite an old friend to my child’s birthday party because she’s actively using again and I can not be involved in her life when she’s using. She is hurt and very angry with me. I am sorry to be hurting her but it’s how I have to handle it. She is not getting help right now and so, with the state of heroin in America being so insanely dangerous, and day could be her last day. It’s terrifying and I can’t pretend it’s OK. I can’t support what she’s doing but she knows I will be there if/when she gets treatment again and then is able to be stable in her life. Until then we are sadly separated. Drugs ruin relationships.

    • Abby says:

      👏🏽 Yess. Focus on healing. Nicks responsibility is to his new wife, not worrying if something in thie celebrations will trigger for a friend who’s in recovery.

    • Annie says:

      She can’t binge on drugs and alcohol, so she switched to the other thing she’s addicted to: love. This is a different type of binge. There’s a reason why AA and most rehab centers suggest addicts don’t date for a whole year. You need to focus on your recovery and stop binging on things. You can definitely binge on people too. She has binged on food too. She has an ED as well. There was a point when she had gained a bunch of weight that I knew she had fallen off the wagon. She didn’t look bad or anything, but she was at her heaviest ever. You could tell she was binging on something before relapsing with alcohol and drugs again.

      I’m not a professional but I know someone just like her and I know all the cycles of recovery, relapse and all crap in between. Addicts don’t just binge on drugs and alcohol. They binge on food and people too, they switch to other things when they’re in recovery. Pretty much anything that gives them pleasure they can become addicted to.

      She reminds me of Mickey from the series Love. She’s a drug addict, and alcoholic and a sex and love addict. When she realizes she’s spinning again and decides to go sober she knows she needs to be single too. She doesn’t last a day. She immediately starts dating a guy and says she’s trying not to binge on him but that’s exactly what she does.

  2. Gutterflower says:

    Aren’t you supposed to avoid relationships for a year or something post rehab?

    • Arpeggi says:

      I think it’s part of the AA recommendations but not every rehab program does that. That being said, learning to be comfortable with being alone is definitely a must for everyone, not just addicts. In Demi’s case she seems to have issues with that, so yes, she should learn to function on her own and for herself

  3. Jay says:

    I always thought you you were supposed to avoid a relationship until you had a year of sobriety.

    • jules says:

      It’s an AA recommendation, so that you can place all your focus on yourself and your sobriety, but as an alcoholic who has been in an out of treatment like Demi, I can say that loneliness and isolation were two major things that led to relapse. I’ve been single and sober now for 2 years, and I’m ok with it, but during the first year, I certainly wasn’t going to not get involved with someone whom I thought would be a good partner because it was “recommended” to me by a program that is over 75 years old. To each their own. What works for one, doesn’t necessarily work for all. I hope she finds balance and I applaud her transparency and her willingness to always try, try again.

  4. Millennial says:

    I think Demi alienated a bunch of people with her last relapse, wouldn’t be surprised if Nick was one of those. He’s been dealing with her nonsense since they were on Camp Rock and on tour together. With a new serious girlfriend/wife I could see him taking a step back for a while, but I doubt he will cut ties permanently.

    • BlueSky says:

      I agree. No telling what the status of their relationship is at this point. She seems very messy and nobody wants that drama at their wedding. I’m sure his brother was not interested in seeing his ex either. Also, I’m not sure if alcohol was part of her problem but maybe they didn’t want to put her in that position where she would be tempted.

    • Eleonor says:

      Probably he has seen her falling off the wagon again, and decided to take distances until she gets back on track.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Or……she might not have gotten an invite because he knows his friend and how she acts.

    Yes, I have avoided inviting certain people to events because they can make a group setting worst.

    • Enny says:

      Or…maybe we shouldn’t assume it was Nick who left her off the guest list. Who here really believes Priyanka Chopra was ok with Nick inviting a close female friend – especially a beautiful, talented one much more famous than Priyanka? That fact would’ve gotten way too much attention, too much for Priyanka’s ego to handle.

      • Kanye’s Blonde Hair says:

        Girl, Demi is not that famous lmao.

        Just reading about her is exhausting, I can just imagine the burden she is on everyone around her.

    • Annie says:

      Me too. There are people you can’t invite to parties with family because they’re embarrassing when they drink. She just left rehab. Nick has a new family to impress. Sadly Demi probably hurt many friendships with her last relapse. She had relapsed long before she ODed. People knew.

  6. Zapp Brannigan says:

    “Her new relationship, with clothing designer Henry Levy, whom she met in rehab a few years ago”

    Well that seems like a terrible idea. I hope she is taking her sobriety seriously but leaking to the press about this wedding (non)invite seems like the wrong thing for her to focus on right now.

  7. Ewe says:

    I understand that she’d be upset, but I hope she’s also able to look at the situation from Nick’s pow. Addiction is a bitch, but Demi has proven time and time again that her getting out of rehab doesn’t mean sobriety.

    I wouldn’t have invited her and that extra drama to my wedding either.

  8. xdanix says:

    I’m pretty sure their friendship hasn’t been right for a while- she drove a bunch of people who were very close with her away when she was in the middle of relapsing.

    I don’t follow her closely, but I read up on some of the gossip when it was all going down, and according to her fans who DO keep track of those things, Nick was absolutely one of the people she alienated. He had always been one of the friends most supportive of her sobriety (wouldn’t ever even drink around her) and absolutely was not ok with what she was doing. He couldn’t stop her, obviously, but he was not going to be her friend and stand idly by while she was doing it. (I can’t stand all the constant thirst exhibited around his and Priyanka’s multiple weddings, but I must say I like him from reading about his efforts to be supportive of her sobriety over the years.)

    If she was only released less than a month before they embarked on their month of weddings, I can see how there just wasn’t time to repair their relationship in time. Sure, maybe she was hurt he didn’t just invite her anyway, but she also probably hurt a lot of people when she was spiralling, and it sounds like he was really upset by whatever went down. Theirs wasn’t just a professional friendship, they were properly good friends for a long time. Hopefully they can patch things up over time.

    • Arpeggi says:

      Even if they had not a falling out, I wouldn’t invite someone who just got out of rehab to five days of extravagant partying, it seems like a recipe for relapsing and I wouldn’t want to feel responsible for that.

  9. Bettyrose says:

    Are the Jonas Bros hotter in person? Like, is their magnatism so strong as to make them irresistible to successful, beautiful women?

  10. RBC says:

    Maybe she will be invited to Nick’s “next” wedding in a year or two?

  11. Michael says:

    I thought everybody on the planet attended at least one of his weddings

  12. Other Renee says:

    Demi is all drama all the time. Can you imagine if she was seen drinking? That’s what the headlines would have been about. He didn’t need that at any of his weddings.

  13. Zabar says:

    We made the decision to not invite one of my husband’s good friends to our wedding. He struggles with alcohol & becomes very self- destructive when he has access to it. His friend never has forgiven him and even wrote my husband a nasty email trashing/blaming me. It was a tough decision to make, but we standby our choice.

  14. Originaltessa says:

    She’s super messy. I wouldn’t invite her. I understand that addiction is a struggle, etc etc, but there are consequences to the choices you make. Losing friends is one of them.

    • mela says:

      Yup some people don’t want a junkie at their wedding. And Demi has done the rehab dance many times so maybe her long time friends are hanging back and waiting to see if sobriety sticks this time.

      It might be getting to the point where her straight friends just don’t want her in their life anymore. These are the type of things that should be additional wake up calls for Demi, any addict. Besides the OD, their world gets smaller and smaller socially/professionally as their addiction progresses. There are social consequences for addiction as well as the court system will eventually begin to take away her adult rights and privileges as she shows she is unable to handle them. If she continues down this path, she will lose more than just this Jonas.

  15. Otaku fairy... says:

    Hopefully being in a relationship doesn’t mess with her sobriety. Still rooting for her.

  16. Louise177 says:

    I only know one person who went to rehab and partying wasn’t their priority. I don’t think Demi was in the head space to do this type of an event. A typical wedding maybe but a week long party may have been too much for her.

  17. MissD says:

    A blind item said that they didn’t want Demi there because they were afraid she would draw too much attention away from the bride and groom. They blamed the decision on Nick’s dad.

  18. Alittlesugar says:

    ^ I’m sure Priyanka wouldn’t have cared – she had Sophie Turner there after all, who’s presence in India and the wedding did make big news, so Demi wouldn’t have been an issue for her. Also, there seems to be a lot of blind items of Nick’s Dad lately. This, and there were a few back around the engagement and then the wedding on how he arranged this and Priyanka and Nick were willing participants, for their own gain or if they were genuinely interested in each other then it was a good bonus. I’m wondering if it’s true and he had more involvement in pushing for this relationship than we know.

  19. HeyThere! says:

    I guess a lot of people are saying why invite someone fresh out of rehab, but I think the opposite. Why not invite someone who needs support and let them decide if they are okay going to a very, very public(sponsored out the wazzoo) wedding? BUT I think they have been off for a while. She doesn’t even follow him on insta(or was it twitter?). I have some people I care about that have substance issues and it’s a hard relationship to navigate. You want to be loving and supportive but you also don’t want to expose your babies(in my case) to toxic unhealthy behavior. It’s sad. I have seen people rob their grandmother blind in the name of addiction. Heartbreaking. You want to help because they are sick but they have to want to get help first. She got help, so I would have invited her and let her decide. Ugh. I see why she was upset but if she died, she would have missed it anyway sooo she has BIGGER more IMPORTANT things to do than go to the parade of tacky weddings. Lol

  20. lucy2 says:

    He has the right to invite who he wants – and clearly chose not to include her in this, most likely in reaction to her life and choices right now.

    I really hope she’s doing well, but hopping into another relationship so soon, especially to someone who has also had addiction issues, doesn’t sound good.

  21. Annaloo. says:

    Beyond rehab..GROW UP DEMI!! Everythign is not about you.

  22. Some chick says:

    Five days (and a choreographed dance number) is still not a lot for an Indian wedding. Especially one involving a huge star of Bollywood.

    • Somegirl says:

      Ya, my friend’s brother, who’s family is from India, had like a 7 day wedding held in two states that included a party for 1,000 people. I’m friends with the younger brother- never met the groom or bride until that day of the wedding- and I was given an entire table of 10 to fill with friends and all of my guests who wished were outfitted in saris and traditional clothes. It was actually funny because my husband was wearing the same clothes to the wedding as the groom was wearing in the engagement portraits that were displayed. Traditional Indian weddings are a BIG deal.

  23. Margo Smith says:

    Nope. If I had a friend that unstable, I’m sure many will disagree, but I wouldn’t want them at my wedding. She literally was fresh out of rehab, and this was an important day for him and Priyanka.

  24. JaneEyreApparent says:

    As someone who has been in recovery for 30+ years, I’ve noticed that weddings are the #1 place for relapse and/or messy drama. Perhaps they didn’t want to deal with that.

  25. Annie says:

    A five day party is the last thing she needs. Addictions ruin relationships and people are more than free to set boundaries because this stuff is draining. She’s not Nick’s sister. She wasn’t needed there. And let’s be real he probably dealt with her relapse long before she ODed.

    People have a right to throw big parties without having to worry about whether or not this will trigger the addict.

    Just focus on your sobriety Demi. Addictions ruin relationships. Nobody has to put up with that stuff. He has a new wife to take care of.

  26. Anon33 says:

    You should do some research into what her new guy “designs” before calling him a good influence.

  27. SV says:

    The documentary Demi did before her last album is telling. She went to rehab the previous time because the Jonas family who she was on tour with and their shared management etc all collectively threatened to cut her off. Last year Demi released a song about Nick called Ruin the Friendship that was Demi admitting romantic feelings for Nick and/or using their friendship for publicity. Either way is was obvious it created some distance in their friendship because Nick wasn’t into her like that. Last spring it appears people including Nick Jonas threatened to cut her off again once it became clear she wasn’t sober. This time instead of going to rehab she rejected the people who wanted to hold her accountable. There was no time for Nick and Demi to repair their friendship before the wedding as she wouldn’t have even been out of rehab when the invites when out, especially a friendship that was never going to be the same once Demi put out that song a year ago. And I have seen no evidence that any of the Nick Jonas affiliated people are back with Demi. The new boyfriend is probably evidence that she is out of rehab, but those old friendships that were with her since Disney are still unrepaired.

    • Otaku fairy... says:

      Are we sure Ruin the Friendship was about Nick? I had just assumed it was about some random guy friend she hooked up with, but didn’t even think of Nick. Maybe she mentioned it in the documentary. I didn’t watch it.
