Ariana Grande’s mother sends message of support to Demi Lovato

Joan Grande said Lovato was there for her son Frankie when he was trying to get sober.

Singer Ariana Grande has shared a message of support to Demi Lovato from her mother Joan after reports emerged Lovato has suffered a suspected overdose.

In her message Joan thanked Lovato for being there for her son Frankie, who revealed he had been sober for one year after turning to alcohol and prescription drugs to cope with the trauma he experienced after the bombing at his sister’s concert in Manchester in May 2017.

Joan wrote: “I am knocked down over Demi and I pray that she recovers quickly and finds sobriety again.

“It is work, hard work, but with support and love, she will succeed!

“I know it, we are there for her in any way. She is a sweet, kind person, who has in my personal experience always shown love to everyone in my world.

“She was there for Frankie during his work with sobriety… and as we know he just celebrated his ONE year.

“She has always been so supportive of Ariana as well, sharing her experiences with the fame and celebrity and notoriety of growing up in a very public space.”

Joan went on to urge people not to find self-worth in criticising other people and to remember that “not one fan base is better than the other”.

Sharing her mother’s message with her 56.8 million followers on Twitter, Ariana Grande wrote: “Mom wrote something beautiful. Check it out. Much love.”

The God Is A Woman singer was one of many stars to rally around Lovato on social media following the reports, writing: “i love u @ddlovato.”
