Demi Lovato has revealed that it took her 2010 rehab stint to make her realize who her true friends were.
The 20-year-old singer/actress says in a new interview that she had to deal with a hard truth about many of the people in her life after she was released from three months of treatment for cutting, an eating disorder, and a bi-polar disorder.
"A couple of months before I went to rehab, I had a birthday party and there were a couple of hundred people there. It was full of people who I considered my closest friends," she tells Britain's Company magazine. "When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake up call."
Now, the former bestie of Selena Gomez says that her social circle is smaller.
"I don't have loads of friends," Lovato confesses. "I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, they'll come to the hospital with me. Or they'll answer the phone at 4 a.m. if I need them."
The "X Factor" judge also explains that she tries to keep the drama quotient in her life low by refusing to focus on things that aren't important.
"I don't care about Taylor Swift's love life. I don't care about Harry Styles's love life," she says. "I care about mine. I find it weird that people are so obsessed with other people's love lives!"
