Demi Lovato just stepped back into the social media ring to clap-back a fan who accused her of unfairly firing her back-up dancer.

The fan took to Twitter yesterday to call out Lovato's team, claiming their behaviour is "rotten" regarding the handling of the singer's altercation with her backup dancer.

Lovato shut down the fan for claiming that 'Dani', who spoke out about the star's recent overdose, should not have been fired.

According to Revelist, Dani Vitales, a backup dancer at the time, went to the press following Demi's drug overdose and trip to an L.A rehabilitation centre.

Dani Vitales, who was Lovato's longtime friend, then decided to write a lengthy statement on social media about the controversy, denying rumours that she supplied the singer with drugs:

“I have NEVER touched nor even SEEN a drug in my entire life,” Vitale, also 28, wrote on Instagram.

“I DO NOT DO DRUGS, nor would I ever encourage, or supply them to anyone I love.”

Speaking about the painful emotions which she endured following the accusations, Vitale said, 

“The circulation of an UNTRUE story on the internet yanked my life, my reputation, my name and everything I have worked so hard to stand for, out from underneath me. A damaging narrative that demonized me, placed blame on me, and has since cost me so many wonderful moments in life.”

"I care about Demi just like all of you do. I have not said anything about this situation until now because her recovery has been of the most importance" 

"I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you."

On Thursday, a fan then took to Twitter and Instagram to write:

“It was completely unfair to fire dani, she’s one of the few who really cares about demi’s health and has been helping her for 3 years, she’s surrounded by people who only care about her money and she does not see it.”

The fan accused Lovato’s “team” of being “rotten,” commenting: “She does not realise it, needs a total change.”

We suspect the fan never thought Ms Lovato would actuallly see the tweet, but Demi saw it alright, and didn't hold back in the comments section:

“You have no idea what you’re talking about, ” later writing, “True friends don’t do interviews about you after you OD.”

Most readers speculated that she was referring to back-up dancer Dani Vitale, the 28-year-old singer quickly responded: “I’m not talking about Dani Vitale.”

Lovato might be referring instead to Danielle Martin,  her former trainer, who spoke out last week about severing ties with the singer:

“I lost my job for speaking up for her, to be honest,” Martin told Radar Online.

“Pretty sad. I did nothing but empower her. Nothing bad to say. The people around her I’m sure were happy to run to her. They told her I was taking the situation and making it all about me. I’d never do that. Not ever. I was standing up for her. That’s all.”

It's pretty clear that Demi's fans are NOT here for Danielle:

Demi is currently back in LA and spending time with her mother, Dianna De La Garzia, as well as attending a sober living facility.

We hope this drama doesn't hinder her recovery, we need Demi back. Not just for her legendary clap-backs too.

It's not news that Demi Lovato has had a ridiculously tough year, following her opioid overdose and subsequent trip to rehab in the past six months. 

After taking time away from the spotlight, the 26-year-old singer has finally returned to the 'gram for an important cause: to encourage her fans to vote in the US mid-term elections.

She posted this today from her polling place:

"I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!"

Lovato isn't the only celebrity to display their political standpoints and show their stance, but Demi's is all the more valuable for the struggle she is currently enduring following 90 days of sobriety.

The former child star was admitted to a rehabilitation facility on July 24 after suffering an opioid overdose in her Hollywood Hills mansion, currently on sale for €8.995 million.

She stayed in Beverley Hills hospital for almost two weeks before seeking in-patient treatment for her addiction, which she has suffered with throughout her life, alongside mental illness and eating disorders.

The star entered a treatment facility in 2010 for bipolar disorder, self-harm, addiction and bulimia, but relapsed after leaving the centre. Following this, she entered a sober living facility for a year, and celebrated six years of sobriety in March.

Her July overdose shocked fans and the famous alike. It followed the release of her semi-autobiographical single, Sober in June.

Her previous Instagram post is a selfie from July 23, the day before entering rehab, without a caption. She appears to have been dispelling fan fears that her life had ended as a result of the overdose:

The singer thanked her friends and family for their support during her troubles, and has been silent ever since. Today, she has used her platform to encourage a higher voter turnout.

Her mother, Dianna De La Garza,  has recently spoken out about her daughter's advancement: “Yes, she has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction being a disease, it’s work."

"She’s getting the help she needs. And that, in itself, encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”

The 26-year-old singer was spotted by paparazzi out for the first time in Los Angeles last weekend, leading the public to believe that she has finished her stint at an addiction facility.

She went out to dinner with friend and designer Henry Levy, TMZ reported.

Her mother has been especially vocal about how grateful their family is that Demi is alive:

“I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day, when everybody found out what was happening,” she said.

“I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.”
