Patrick-Lovato-espera-ter-uma-reconciliacao-com-Demi-Dallas-e-sua-maeDemi Lovato and her elder sister Dallas are mourning today for their deceased father. Patrick Lovato, who was not present for the majority of his daughter’s childhoods, died today of cancer. Patrick has had no contact with Demi and Dallas in recent years, and Demi used her strained relationship with her father as songwriting material occasionally, especially on her most heartbreaking track, ‘For The Love of a Daughter.’

The song gives fans a glimpse into her less than stable home life, and she sings about the ‘family war’ that she endured at just 4 years old. Prominent lyrics include: “You have a hollowed out heart but it’s heavy in your chest, I try so hard to fight it’s but it’s hopeless… you’re hopeless.”

In a 2009 interview, Demi addressed her relationship with her father: “2 years ago . . . When somebody lets you down after you’ve been the only one there for them . . . I had to cut off all connection. It was hurting me too much.” In the same year he said about his daughters: “I would never blame Dianna. She is a wonderful mother. I love Demi, her sister, Dallas, and Dianna. I think about them all the time and I pray they are OK and safe.”

Demi was due to appear at a ‘X Factor‘ promo shoot alongside fellow judges today, but has been excused from attending for obvious reasons, whilst she struggles to come to terms with the death of a man who was a mere stranger to her, despite their biological link. Dallas tweeted just now: “Rest in peace daddy I love you,” and fans of the pair are trending “#StayStrongDemiAndDallas.”
