Demi Lovato has showed off a large spider tattoo on their newly-shaved head.
The US singer and former Disney teen star, who uses they/them pronouns after coming out as non-binary, took to their Instagram Story yesterday to debut their bold new look.
“It was Grandmother Spider who taught us many things,” the Skyscraper singer, 29, wrote in one of their posts unveiling the ink.
“She taught us about pottery and weaving. She taught us about fire and light and dark. She taught us that we are all connected on the web – each one of us having our place in the world.”
A source close to the Dancing With the Devil singer told the New York Post’s Page Six they returned to Utah for treatment but is now back home and “doing well”.
Reps for Lovato didn’t return Page Six’s request for comment.
Lovato’s return to rehab came after they told fans that being “California sober” — imbibing alcohol and smoking marijuana — would no longer work for them.
“I no longer support my ‘California sober’ ways,” the performer shared on their Instagram Story in early December. “Sober sober is the only way to be.”
A few weeks later, Lovato debuted a shaved head in a photo, which eagle-eyed fans noticed appeared to be taken at the rehab facility, to represent a “fresh start”.
Speculation surrounding Lovato’s whereabouts further fuelled when their older sister, Dallas Lovato, shared a video of the two reuniting for Christmas on TikTok, along with their younger sister, Madison De La Garza.
“When you get exactly what you wished for on Christmas … your sister,” Dallas, 33, wrote over the video, adding a red heart emoji.
“I tricked you, I’m sorry,” Demi said as they hugged a teary-eyed Madison, 20.
Lovato has also recently deleted all but one of the photos on their Instagram page, which has 128 million followers.
Despite suffering a near-fatal overdose in 2018, the I Love Me artist explained why they didn’t want to be completely sober following their recovery and subsequent rehab stay.
“I called [my recovery case manager, Charles Cook] and was like, ‘Something’s not right. I’m living one side of my life completely legalising and this other side following a program that’s telling me if I slip up, I’m going to die,’” they shared with Glamour magazine.
The Confident singer detailed their overdose in their YouTube documentary series, candidly detailing fans the grip their addiction had on them, from using meth and heroin to now having to receive injections to prevent from getting high.
