Demi Lovato is mourning the loss of her beloved grandfather, saying “it hurts” not being able to have a funeral due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The “Anyone” singer, 27, shared the sad news on Instagram on Wednesday, alongside several photos of her grandfather, who had been ill for years.
“Woke up to the news that my Grandpa Perry passed away early this morning,” she wrote. “He’s been sick for a couple years now so although I’m relieved he is out of pain, it still hurts to think our family won’t get to say goodbye with a proper funeral for a while. But that’s the reality during this pandemic.
She remembered him as a person who “loved God FIERCELY and was one of the best preacher’s I’ve ever had the honor in witnessing spread the word of God.”
The Grammy nominee was inundated with messages from her support system, including her actor boyfriend, Max Ehrich, who commented with a heart and prayer hands emoji. Lovato’s mother, Dianna De La Garza, wrote, “Our memories with him are better than pictures #RIP Chief,” since Lovato said she didn’t have many photos with her grandpa.
The “Camp Rock” star has been quarantining with her boyfriend during the pandemic. Last week she penned a gushing tribute to him in honor of his birthday, writing in part: “I feel unconditionally loved and accepted by you in a way that I’ve never felt before.”
