- Demi Lovato said another celebrity's behavior at the 2019 Met Gala led her to leave and attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting because she wanted to drink.
- Lovato has been sober for the past five years after years of substance abuse.
- Some people speculated, based on an Instagram post, that the mystery celebrity is Nicki Minaj.
- There isn't enough evidence for that claim to hold up.
Demi Lovato says another celebrity's behavior made her leave the 2019 Met Gala for an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.
And while some people are blaming Nicki Minaj, the evidence is flimsy.
"I changed my clothes, but I still had my diamonds on — millions of dollars of diamonds on in an AA meeting," Lovato told Billboard. "And I related more to the homeless people in that meeting who struggled with the same struggles that I deal with than the people at the Met Gala — fake and sucking the fashion industry's dick."
Lovato has a history of dealing with substance abuse issues. In 2019, she released a documentary, "Simply Complicated," which traced her rise through fame and revealed she had used drugs while acting on Disney Channel as a child. She's committed to being sober for the past five years.
She told Billboard that one celebrity at the Met Gala made her experience there terrible. She considered drinking again.
"This one celebrity was a complete b--- and was miserable to be around," Lovato said. "It was very cliquey. I remember being so uncomfortable that I wanted to drink."
Nicki Minaj is the target, but people aren't convinced.
After the Billboard interview was published Thursday, People speculated the celebrity might be Nicki Minaj. Since Lovato posted an Instagram photo where she didn't tag Minaj, the theory goes, they must be feuding.
That same night, Lovato posted a Snapchat selfie where she wrote, "When you aren't mentioned in a post but didn't do s--- to the other person..."
Reading between the lines, some people think that Minaj was the "complete b----" who made her want to leave the Met Gala.
But most people think the theory is far fetched. It's a flimsy premise for thinking there's a feud between the two, and Lovato's angry response seems disproportionate to an Instagram drama.
So who is the mystery celebrity b----? We may never know. But there isn't enough evidence to say it's Nicki Minaj.
Representatives for Lovato and Minaj didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.
