Demi Lovato cancelled an appearance at a photoshoot for The X Factor late last week after it was revealed that her biological father had passed away. Apparently she’s had a pretty messed up relationship with him over the years (he abandoned the family and they were estranged for most of her life) but they may or may not have reconciled after she went to rehab.

Patrick Lovato had dealt with cancer and was desperate to have a relationship with Demi and her older sister Dallas since falling ill. It seems to have partially happened, at least with Dallas, who tweeted the following:

X Factor judge Simon Cowell and host Mario Lopez also tweeted his condolences to Demi:

For all the shit Demi gets, I like her and think she’s a good kid. Hope she’s okay!
