Demi Lovato has got a new "free" tattoo - just a week after announcing she had broken her sobriety.

The 25-year-old singer has revealed that she and her "team" have got matching inkings - which read "free" - on their pinky fingers, just days after she dropped her new track 'Sober' in which she confirmed she had broken her six years sobriety.

Taking to her Instagram Story on Monday night, Demi uploaded a photograph of her new body artwork in a black and white shot, followed by "Jun. 22, 2018" - which may have been a reference to the date she went under the pen. 


She accompanied it with the caption: "The team that tats together stays together."

The brunette beauty shocked the world last week when she released her new single, in which she sings: "Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/ And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor/ And I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again/ I wanna be a role model, but I'm only human."

Demi has been very open about her battles with addiction - and her stint in rehab in 2010 - and emotionally celebrated her six year milestone during a concert in March.

The following month, she was papped drinking from a red cup at Hayley Kiyoko's album release party - but she was quick to shut down her critics who doubted her.

She replied on social media: "I don't have to defend anything but it was red bull."

Demi's tattoo comes just days after she told an audience in Barcelona, Spain, that life can be "really funny sometimes" but happiness has the ability to set you "free." 

She said: "Life is really, really funny sometimes. It can be difficult, but, for the most part, if you do what makes you happy and set yourself free, you'll live an amazing life."
