Sin lograr una reconciliación con su hija, el padre biológico de Demi Lovato ha fallecido después de una lucha contra el cáncer.

Se supo de la muerte de Patrick Lovato después que la hermana de la artista, Dallas Lovato, lo anunciara en Twitter.

Demi Lovato, de 20 años, casi no mantenía relación ni comunicación con su padre desde el 2007 después que éste y la madre de la artista, Dianna, se separaran en 1995, de acuerdo con Us Weekly.

En los últimos años, Patrick Lovato lo aquejaba el cáncer e hizo intentos de reconciliación con la cantante y manifestó que "el no quería nada de ella, que sólo buscaba amor".

Demi Lovato, quien se encuentra como jurado del show "The X Factor", no ha emitido comentarios acerca de la pérdida de su padre. La cantautora ha manifestado su privilegio de trabajar junto con el creador de la serie, Simon Cowell, para la competencia de canto en su tercera temporada.

Cowell también se manifestó en su cuenta de Twitter:
