While Lovato was only one of many topics Jonas discussed in the interview, his remarks were particularly candid about his one-time girlfriend. “I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with, like drug abuse,” Jonas said in the interview. “I felt I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn’t express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect.”
On Monday (Dec. 2), Lovato responded to Jonas’ article with a simple expression of affection.

Considering that Lovato has previously stated that she and Jonas have had a good relationship since their 2010 breakup, this response is not really a surprise.
Demi’s sister, Dallas Lovato, however, did not share in these feelings of friendship. She posted a much different message to Twitter:
Pathetic how people cut others down to get attention off themselves.. Loser
