Demi Lovato: Missed 'X Factor' Photo Shoot After Dad's Death
Demi Lovato took a break from her work obligations following the death of her biological father. Demi missed a photo shoot for 'X Factor' to be with family during this difficult time. See what she said about her relationship with her dad. Following the death of her biological father, Demi Lovato took a little time off from work to be with family.
That meant missing out on an X Factor related obligation--a photo shoot she was to do over the weekend with her fellow judges.
Though Demi and her dad were estranged following her parents' divorce, there's no doubt that his death had an impact on her and she needed the time off to grieve.
In 2009, Demi told the Daily News: "The last time I talked to him was two years ago," adding, "You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do."
She continued, "I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much."
Demi's song "For The Love Of A Daughter" spoke of their strained relationship and hinted at his alcohol abuse.
