If there’s anything fans know Demi Lovato for other than her music is that she’s a fighter. On Tuesday the singer posted a photo to Instagram in her Brazilian jiu-jitsu robe after an intense martial arts session at her favorite gym, Unbreakable Performance Center, in Los Angeles.
Despite being “sweaty” and makeup free after her workout, Lovato — who left rehab earlier this month — looked healthy as she posed for the photo.
“Sweaty, messy jiu jitsu hair.. #BJJ #bluebelt #nevergiveup” she wrote alongside the selfie.
Lovato has been a longtime fan of the sport, and has even posted about her workouts and jiu-jitsu accomplishments on social media in the past. Just last year, the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer proudly shared the news that she was a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, the second of seven levels.
Since leaving rehab, the only other time Lovato has posted on the platform was when she encouraged her followers to vote in the midterm elections in November.
And for those who may not remember, Demi suffered an overdose this past July, and has been working on her recovery ever since. Earlier this fall, Demi’s mother Dianna De La Garza told reporters that Demi had reached the 90-day sober mark.
“She has 90 days and I couldn’t be more thankful or more proud of her because addiction, being a disease, is work. It’s very hard and there are no shortcuts,” she said.
It seems Lovato’s hard work is paying off because she’s looking great!
