Though Demi Lovato is in rehab, representatives for the singer are pushing back against rumors that she is being treated for a drug problem, reports People.

"Demi Lovato is not in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction," said a spokesperson for the teen singer.

She has taken this step in order to get her life in order."

On November 2, Lovato abruptly dropped out of the South American leg of a tour with the Jonas Brothers due to what a rep for the star called "emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time."
