The 18-year-old singer-actress released a smiley home video on Cambio.com thanking her fans for their continued support throughout "the darkest time of my life."
"I know you’ve seen me out and about, and I wanted to let you know that I’m back, and home," says the Sonny with a Chance star. who left the Jonas Brothers tour last fall to enter rehab. "But I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for the support that you guys have given me along the way. I read all of the tweets, the trending topics and the fan mail, and your support is what got me through this. So I couldn’t be more thankful for everything that you guys sent me."
"The journey that I’ve been on has been very very difficult over the past few months," she continues. "People that are probably watching this video right now are dealing with the issues that I had to. And I hope to one day raise awareness of everything so that I can help people, too, just like you guys helped me through this rough time."
Lovato sincerely thanked her fans again for "how much like you guys brought into my life in probably the darkest time of my life" and credited her supporters for her recovery. "Without you guys, I wouldn’t be here today." The starlet said she was "excited to get back to work" and "can’t wait to tell you guys what the future holds."
In December, Lovato reached a deal with Alex Welch, the backup dancer she allegedly punched in the face prior to checking into rehab. And despite the untimely release of racy photos leaked online, Lovato seems to be well on her way toward redeeming her public image.
We wish her a continued recovery and all the best.
