Demi Lovato was hurried to the hospital on July 24 on the report of drug overdose. A call was received from the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive at 11:22 a.m. to the Los Angeles Fire Department for a medical emergency.
An official disclosed that Demi was stable and recovering after apparent overdose. In addition, they also disclosed that the 25-year-old singer has agreed to go to rehab.
There were reports where it said that Demi overdosed on heroin, but it has not publicly been disclosed and Demi has denied that information.
Lovato shared that she first tried cocaine as a 17-year-old Disney star and “loved it.”
Demi said,” I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka. It was just nine in the morning, and I was throwing up in the car, and this was just to get on a plane to go back to L.A. to the sober living house that I was staying at.” She said. “I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it.” These events must have lead up to her overdose today.
The renowned singer of popular songs like Skyscraper, Cool For The Summer and Sorry Not Sorry hasn’t beaten her addiction and wants to focus on being sober and drug free now.
Demi had posted the following post in her Instagram account on Sunday, two week after the overdose, “I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.”
“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.”
“Thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.”
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side.”
Adding a heart emoji, she continued, “I will keep fighting,”
