Demi Lovato has yet to see pal Selena Gomez's racy movie Spring Breakers because she fears the plot of the film might be problematic for her as she battles sobriety.

The Skyscraper singer spent three months in rehab for emotional issues and eating disorders and she has only recently bought a new home after spending a year at a sober living facility - and she's not sure she's ready to see director Harmonie Korine's film about party girls on vacation.

Lovato tells Nylon magazine, "I heard it has a lot of drinking and using, so as much as I want to see it, I feel like it might be a trigger or something.

"I kind of have to stay away from movies like that... and parties and clubs."

Lovato is currently testing her sobriety following the death of her estranged father Patrick over the weekend. The singer pulled out of a publicity event for America's The X Factor on Saturday (22Jun13) following the news of her dad's passing.
