Demi Lovato Opens Up About Teen Rape In A Tell-All Documentary

US singer Demi Lovato revealed she was raped as a virgin during her teenage years as a Disney Channel actress and pop star, in a tell-all documentary that opened the online South By Southwest festival Tuesday.

The four episodes, presented as the opening night film of a SXSW forced online by the pandemic, also contained new details of sexual assaults suffered by Lovato, including an attack on the night of her overdose.

Lovato, now 28, does not name her attacker but says the rape happened when “I was part of that Disney crowd,” and that she “had to see this person all the time” following the assault.

Dubbing the incident “my #MeToo story,” Lovato says she reported the attacker but “they never got in trouble for it, they never got taken out of the movie they were in.”

Lovato shot to fame with the Disney Channel movie “Camp Rock,” filmed when she was 15.
