Demi Lovato gets 'stay strong' tattoos 'in honor of fans and their support'
Newly rehabbed Demi Lovato has taken to her Cambio site to share two additions to her post-rehab life: tattoos honoring her fans that read, "stay" and "strong."
The "Sonny With a Chance" star emblazoned the messages on her left and right wrists "in honor of my fans and their support" while she was in an Illinois rehab facility.
"The journey that I went through and the support of my fans was so meaningful to me that I wanted to thank my fans in a way that I know can never be forgotten," she said in the video.
The Disney darling added a small heart-shaped tattoo to her right wrist because fans had been drawing and tattooing them on their own wrists when the star abruptly left the Jonas Brothers tour in South America to seek treatment last November for "emotional and physical issues" that made it necessary for her "to get her life in order."
Reps vehemently denied that the actress was being treated for substance-abuse problems.
"I wanted to show you guys that I will never forget the support you guys gave me, and I will look at it every day and remember you guys and be completely thankful for you," she said.
The 18-year-old checked out of the facility in January but just reappeared on Twitter on Tuesday after being on hiatus from the micro-blogging site since October.
"Guess who's baaaaaaaack...!!!!!!!" she tweeted and was welcomed publicly by Perez Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Early Wednesday, she added the tweet, "Achievement comes to those who are willing to walk as far as it takes till you get to what few have."
