Demi Lovato Mourns the Death of Her Grandpa Perry

Demi Lovato found out some unfortunate news on Wednesday morning (July 1).

“Woke up to the news that my Grandpa Perry passed away early this morning,” the singer wrote on Instagram alongside a throwback photo of her grandfather and one in which he’s kissing her on the cheek at an event.

“He’s been sick for a couple years now so although I’m relieved he is out of pain, it still hurts to think our family won’t get to say goodbye with a proper funeral for a while,” she continued. “But that’s the reality during this pandemic. This man loved God FIERCELY and was one of the best preacher’s I’ve ever had the honor in witnessing spread the word of God. I love you Grandpa. I’m sorry we didn’t take more pictures together but I have so many memories to make me smile until we meet again someday. Rest easy. Love you.”

Lovato’s life over the past three years will be documented in a new YouTube series, which will serve as a follow up to her 2017 YouTube Originals documentary, Simply Complicated.
