Demi Lovato takes break from social media
Demi Lovato is logging off social media. The 26-year-old singer took to Instagram Stories to announce that she’s decided to temporarily sustain from the platform. Taking a break for a while, Lovato wrote on a black background. Be kind. Lovato’s declaration comes after she showed her support for her new manager, Scooter Braun, amid his conflict with Taylor Swift. The drama began when Braun purchased Big Machine Records, Swift’s former record label, and Swift’s catalog.
Swift claimed in a lengthy Tumblr post that Braun had been bullying her for years before deciding to purchase her life’s work for a reported $300 million. Swift also alleged that she found out about the purchase of Scott Borchetta’s former label when the news broke, though Braun and his wife, Yael, have disputed that claim. Though Swift found supporters in celebs like Halsey, Cara Delevingne and Brendan Urie, Braun nabbed the support of his clients, like Justin Bieber and Lovato. I have dealt with bad people in this industry and Scooter is not one of them. He’s a good man, Lovato wrote on her Instagram Story. Personally, I’m grateful he came into my life when he did. —VoM
