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.

This story is BS according to BlindGossip.com. Demi has a terrible problem and these phoney baloney stories do nothing to help her, they enable her.

Does anyone know how legitimate this is? If it's, true.. that's great for her, to know that she needs to take herself out of a possibly harmful situation. BUT she definitely hasn't been staying in the sober living home for as long as it's stated in the article.. if you check her Twitter, she has messaged her roommate multiple times about being in the room next to her and hanging out at night and whatnot. So, there is no way she was in a sober living house at that time. Then again, her crew isn't denying anything.
