Demi Lovato has revealed she is grateful to be alive, and also clean. This is the first time she would be speaking on the overdose that nearly killed her.
The singer also slammed the “sickening” tabloids in a series of tweets Friday night.
Demi went on social media to say she’s “grateful to be alive” and is now sober and getting the help she needs.
She goes off on the media for making up crap about her to sell stories, saying,”If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF.” She wrote;
“I love my fans, and hate tabloids. Don’t believe what you read. People will literally make up stuff to sell a story. Sickening,”
“If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF. Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.”
“Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today… but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal.”
It’s unclear which tabloid stories Lovato is referring to, but Buzzfeed speculates they relate to Lovato’s post-rehab relationship with Henry Levy, who is also reportedly her sobriety partner.
Lovato overdosed on what was reported as an unspecified opioid on July 24th; the singer was found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills residence, where arriving paramedics administered naloxone, which counteracts the effects of an opioid overdose.
