Demi Lovato

How Dare 'X Factor'

Joke About My Drinking Problem

Demi Lovato is furious at the producers of "X Factor," grousing that she was blindsided by a skit that mocked her addiction ... TMZ has learned.

Mario Lopez introduced a skit which showed clips of Demi drinking what looked like booze, acting annoying and off center. 

Demi is extremely upset because addiction has turned her life upside down.  It got so bad, she was living in a sober house for more than a year just to avoid temptation.

You can see her reaction on the show ... at one point it appears she says "That's f**ked up."

Demi's already said she's leaving the show, but now it's pretty clear ... for her it couldn't be soon enough.

We contacted reps for the show ... so far no word back.

That's messed up. Whether you like her or not it's totally not cool to make fun of a recovering addict and imply that they are using again when you know they aren't. No class!

Annoying Juice. HAHAHAHAHAHAAA! That's just too funny. I bet that woman hating dog faced Simon came up with it all by himself as a proper sendoff. Time to call his old standby punching bag - the beloved Paula 'drunk ass' Abdul.

If you're a drunk and a drug addict, people will talk.

Having been one of those who worked on Demi Lovato's Disney show, Sunny With A Chance, I can tell you that Demi is the one who bullied everyone on the set and was a very difficult diva. Then, she punches one of the dancer's in the nose and Disney spins the story to say Demi was the one who was "bullied." It's TOTAL BS. Disney then said they sent her to a recovery for kids who have been 'bullied,' but it was really just rehab for coke addiction and other drugs. Disney did a great spin job but don't believe their lies. From the producer to the crew Demi Lovato was a NIGHTMARE to work with!
