Demi Lovato on surprise half-sister: “I talked to her for the first time in my life”

Demi Lovato had the surprise of her life last year when she learned about an older half-sister she never knew existed.

“She’s in her thirties,” Lovato told New York radio station WBLI on Tuesday. “She’s my half-sister and I talked to her for the very first time in my life around when I turned 20.”

For Lovato, who turned 20 last August, the big reveal has been positive. In the interview, the pop star said that she was surprised to learn that her new big sister had held off on contacting her.

“I asked her, ‘Why haven’t you ever contacted me?'” shared the former “X Factor” judge, “and she just said, ‘Well, because I never wanted you to think I wanted anything from you. So I’ve just kind of been waiting to see if you wanted a relationship,’ and I just thought that was so incredible.”

Lovato didn’t offer any details about her older sister and also politely declined to comment regarding her widely-speculated Valentine’s Day meal with Wilmer Valderrama.

“Some things you just have to keep to yourself,” she said on “Dana & Jeffrey in the Morning.” “No, I would not like to comment.”

And while Lovato is willing to open up only so much to the public, the Dallas, Texas-bred starlet has been vocal about her latest success – the fact that her new single, “Heart Attack,” quickly climbed international song charts to become #1 in 9 countries within hours of its release.
