Demi Lovato

The Sober Living House

Is My Home!

Demi Lovato
is rich and famous, and can afford to live just about anywhere she wants ... but we've learned she's been living in a fairly spartan sober living facility for more than a year.

It's actually pretty awesome ... Demi does not want to fall back into the grip of addiction, where she found herself back in 2010, when she admitted she had problems with anorexia, bulimia and cutting.

After going to rehab, the 20-year-old seemed better, but ultimately felt she needed the support and guidance from counselors and other addicts who understood her situation.

Sources tell us ... shortly after her inpatient rehab, she moved into a facility in the L.A. area.  It's interesting ... considering she also owns a very nice home in L.A..

We're told during the entire season of "X Factor" Demi felt it was best to come home to the facility, where she wouldn't lose her way.

As for how long she'll stay there ... it's undetermined.

In a town with a lot of stars who never figure it out, it's pretty amazing when you see someone as young as her make such good decisions.

Give me a break...time to graduate from your 10th grade addictions and leave the cutting and toothbrush puking to the 14 year old attention seekers.

yeah, just look down one article and you will see a prime example of a star that never figures it out.

I give this girl a ton of credit for sticking to her plan for sobriety. It must be really difficult sometimes with the pressures put upon her. Good for you Demi for committing to your sobriety for life. I hope good things always come your way.

Good for her! Finally, someone in the constant spotlight gets it. How very difficult to stay on the path of sobriety and wellness while living an extremely demanding life. Staying in the sober house has apparently been a great decision for her and she will know when she is ready to manage her total exposure to the world. Congrats!

All these people acting like they feel sorry for her, these are the stories that sell ratings and records. If she genuinely wanted to stay clean she would do what she had to do without making it a big public show. But her and her agents, record execs and fans know nothing sells more these days than "young and damaged diva/damsel".

Maybe Lady Gaga's mommy could write Kelly's mommy and settle this. What a bunch of children.

I think it's commendable. I guess she found a weakness that she just wasn't able to fight at the moment and went to a place that will keep her on the right path. It seems to me that she is a girl who had a bit of insight outside of the "fame and fortune." Too bad a few others didn't have people who had their backs and not just their paychecks.

Pretty much every other site is reporting that she's back in rehab and these reports of her sobriety are just being issued by her PR people to keep her from looking like a Lohan.
