Shortly after being released from rehab following her drug overdose over the summer, Demi Lovato is making some changes in her life. Namely, she's cleaning up her Instagram account, unfollowing a lot of big names from her past.
Among the people that Demi no longer follows on the social media platform is Nick Jonas, whom Demi was close to in the past. The two stars were very close in their Disney days, touring together, and, of course, starring in Camp Rock together. After hearing about Demi's OD, Nick took to Twitter to share his love.
Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi. All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well. She is a fighter. #prayfordemi

Demi also unfollowed Iggy Azalea, who the singer was also close to in the past. Demi was even supposed to be a bridesmaid in Iggy's wedding back in 2016, before it was canceled. Iggy doesn't follow Demi on Instagram either.
After Demi's OD, Iggy spoke to ET about the singer's relapse, saying, "I had known about it, as a close friend. So I had really wanted for her to be the one to tell people that. And I worried a lot, as her friend, that something was going to leak or somebody would somehow take that and use it negatively against her, or to make her seem like she’s got a secret." Later, after being released from rehab Demi told a fan account on Instagram, "True friends don’t do interviews about you when you OD," probably referencing Iggy and explaining her decision to unfollow the rapper on the platform.

The most notable unfollow from Demi, however, is that of Selena Gomez, Demi's former best friend. Selena actually initiated the move, unfollowing Demi on Instagram back in January, but the two seemed to be on better terms since then. Following the overdose, Selena also spoke to the press about Demi, telling Elle, "All I’m saying is, I reached out personally. I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say." While this wasn't too revealing, it could have been enough to anger Demi, prompting the unfollow on Instagram.
Demi is reportedly doing well post-rehab. A source told ET, that the singer is "happy and healthy" and " has dedicated herself to her sober life and has surrounded herself with people in her program." Maybe this Instagram cleansing is just part of her healing process.
