Her older sister, Dallas, is also a singer and actress. Her youngest sister, Madison was born in 2002.
Growing up, Lovato won a few talent contest challenges and performed in well-known productions, including the Eismann Center and the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day Half Time Show with LeAnn Rimes.
Lovato started her the entertainment biz career at 10 years old when she turned into a series regular on the children's TV program Barney and Friends. After her stint on Barney and Friends, Lovato also guest featured on TV dramas like Just Jordan (2007) and Prison Break (2006).

Lovato drew respect and admiration for the June 2018 release of the single "Sober," in which she openly admits to a drug relapse following six years of being clean and sober. One month later, tragedy would strike as the singer was raced to the emergency clinic for an evident overdose. TMZ revealed that she was discovered unresponsive and was resuscitated with Narcan, a prescription drug to reverse the impacts of an opiate overdose. She was later said to be in stable condition at the medical clinic, with her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama as often as possible dropping by to keep an eye on her condition.
Demi address her addiction issues on her Instagram account. She wanted her fans to know that she was doing all she could do to get better and that their support was what was motivating her to push through, "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."
