Demi Lovato’s kid sister, Madison De La Garza, has grown up into a beauty. The 13-year-old teen opened up to Seventeen magazine about having a famous sibling and how sister Lovato defends her from cyber bullies.
De La Garza, who once played Eva Longoria’s on-screen daughter in the hit TV series “Desperate Housewives,” told the magazine that she and elder sister Lovato are always in contact with each other despite their busy schedules, US Weekly reported. "I think when people say they wish Demi Lovato was their sister, they don't realize how hard it is to be related to someone who's constantly away on tour... But she's good at making time for me. We text constantly, and whenever she sees a funny tweet, she'll screenshot it and send it to our family group message."
Even though her elder sister is a famous celebrity, De La Garza revealed that they are just like any other normal siblings. The young actress shared that when Lovato is at home, the two would enjoy fro-yo and watch the ID channel together. The sisters also spend a lot of time talking with each other about “anything and everything.”
De La Garza, who fell victim to cyber bullying last year, shared with Seventeen magazine that she received a lot of negative comments after she posted a Vine clip on Twitter. The clip showed her cooking with the “Cool for Summer” crooner and people made fun of her appearance, saying she had “hunchback.” This freaked out the former “X Factor USA” judge and she reportedly sent direct messages to people, who posted the feedback in order to “yell at them.”
De La Garza recalled that the “Heart Attack” singer even took to Twitter and asked her followers to stand up for her sister. “When people hate on me, she can't really hold back. She's strong and she's a free spirit, and that's what I love about her," the teen actress.
As for the former Disney star, Lovato thinks it is part of being a good sister. The songstress told the magazine that she wanted to be a supportive sibling and to maintain an open relationship with De La Garza.
"I want her to come to me with things. I just let her know that I'm always there for her, whether I'm on the other side of the world or I'm next door," Lovato said.
