Demi Lovato Gets Real About 2018 Overdose

Singer Demi Lovato opened up about her 2018 drug overdose, revealing that she had three strokes and a heart attack while hospitalized.

The Overdose

“My doctors said that I had five to ten more minutes,” said Lovato in a clip from her autobiographical documentary “Dancing With The Devil.”

Back in July 2018, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer was found passed out in her Hollywood abode, reportedly from an overdose of opioids and fentanyl.

Despite news of the drug overdose being highly publicized, few were made privy to the details of the trigger and the aftermath.

This low-point in Lovato’s life arrived shortly after the release of “Sober,” a song in which she spoke out about relapsing after almost six years of staying sober.

“I wanted to set the record straight and reveal it all to my fans,” she said.

Lovato added that there was a lot of confusion amongst fans about what had transpired in her life in the last few years.

The overdose left the singer with brain damage. She confessed that she has had to step back from driving due to her blurred vision, which can also make daily activities, like reading, difficult to navigate.

Past and Future

Lovato has been transparent about her personal struggles throughout her career. In a previous documentary  released in 2012,“Stay Strong,” she detailed her experiences with self-harm,mental health, and eating disorders.

“One of the main reasons I am coming forward is so I never have to live that life again,” she explained.

And it looks like Lovato is ready to hit reset and resume her career. She made a big musical comeback in 2020 by performing at the Super Bowl. Since then, she has appeared in other projects such as a President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
