In an interview with CBS, Demi Lovato revealed that she is now a co-owner of the CAST Center in Los Angeles. It’s the same place where Demi went through a rehab program in 2013 after struggles with depression, bulimia and substance abuse. Demi has been public about her ongoing relationship with Mike Bayer, the center’s founder and CEO. Now the two are business partners.
“I don’t know what it says, it just feels good,” Lovato says of the new deal. It’s an impressive commitment from the pop star who was allegedly very resistant to her treatment plan.
“Yeah, I was a nightmare,” Demi explains in the interview. “I would say … the word that I want to say, but it’s so inappropriate that I can’t. And this will be on a Sunday morning, so I’m not going to say it!”
Demi also spoke about what led her to buy in with CAST and how it contributes to her mission to use her fame for good.
“It sounds ridiculous but, like, I kind of made a pact with God,” Lovato adds. “And I don’t even think you’re supposed to do that, but I was, like, I promised, ‘If you make me a singer one day, I’m going to use my voice for so much more than singing, and I’m going to help people with it.’”
