Demetria Devonne Lovato is born in Albuquerque, New Mexico to Patrick Martin Lovato, an engineer and musician, and Dianna Lee Hart, a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Lovato’s parents divorce right after her second birthday. Lovato has one full older sister Dallas Lovato, one younger maternal half sister Madison De La Garza and one paternal half older sister Amber Lovato.
Lovato struggled with suicide and depression at an early age. Lovato says that her struggles began even before she landed a spot as a cast member on Barney.
Even before Barney, I was suicidal. I was seven. With Barney, I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way … I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.
When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolize, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realized I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.
