Demi Lovato thanks fans in wake of dad's death

Demi Lovato is embracing the support of her fans - a.k.a. Lovatics - in the wake of her father Patrick's passing.

"I feel so humbled to have had so much support from my fans, friends, family and complete strangers," Demi tweeted Sunday, as reports spread that her father had died. "God bless you all, thank you so much."

The singer and "X Factor" judge's sister, Dallas, tweeted the news the day before, writing, "Rest in peace daddy I love you.." In the hours since, Demi's also received support from her "X Factor" family.

"My thoughts are with you Demi," Simon Cowell posted early Sunday, while host Mario Lopez added, "God bless you & your family."

Chimed in new judge Paulina Rubio, "I lov u lil sis my prayers r w u guys! Te amo @ddlovato sorry for ur loss, i know what it feels Nothing we can say it's enough..."

Demi, 20, has been open about her strained relationship with her father following her parents' divorce in 1994.

"You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do," she told the New York Daily News in 2009, saying at the time that she hadn't spoken to her father in two years.
