Demi Lovato hasn’t relapsed since her overdose last year and voluntarily checked herself into rehab, according to reports.

The 26-year-old was recently seen out in Los Angeles for the first time since her month-long rehab stint and new reports claim Demi’s latest treatment was a voluntary decision she made – not because of a speculated relapse.

People reports that Demi chose to enter a facility for a ‘one trip treatment’, with her stay being her ‘own decision’.

The source told the publication: ‘[Demi] has not relapsed since she overdosed. She did recently go to a facility, but it was her own decision. It was one trip to a treatment facility for a few weeks outside of Los Angeles.’

They added that Demi is now back home ‘taking care of herself’ and is in a ‘positive place’, thanks to working out and getting back in the studio to work on new music.

Metro.co.uk contacted a rep for Demi.

Demi’s rehab stint came after she was targeted by online trolls after laughing at 21 Savage memes made over his ICE arrest.

She stressed that she had been laughing at the fact nobody knew 21 was actually a UK citizen, not that he had faced deportation, but that didn’t stop her from being inundated by vile comments referencing her overdose.

Before quitting Twitter, Demi hit back: ‘Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke… Not have I EVER laughed at that (sic).

‘The meme I posted / was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone. But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction let alone their OD.’

Demi was hospitalised in July last year after an overdose at her home and left treatment in November.

She celebrated reaching six months sober in January by getting a rose tattoo inked onto her finger that she told fans she was ‘obsessed’ with.

Previously speaking about her recovery, Demi has said: ‘Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.

‘But until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal..’
