Demi Lovato has their struggles with drug addiction publicly documented. In 2018, the singer suffered a drug overdose. Recently, they completed a short stint at rehab over the holidays.
A source shared with Page Six some inside details as to what’s going on with the “Dancing With the Devil” singer’s life. The source told the outlet they returned to Utah for treatment but is now back home and “doing well.”
Lovato’s return to rehab came after they told fans that being “California sober” that is drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana would no longer work for them. The 29-year performer shared on Instagram, “I no longer support my ‘California sober’ ways,” in early December.
A few weeks later, Lovato debuted a shaved head look. Fans soon started speculating whether the photo was taken in a rehab facility to represent a “fresh start.” Demi Lovato’s older sister, Dallas Lovato, shared a video of the two reuniting for Christmas on TikTok, along with their younger sister, Madison De La Garza. This only fueled the speculations surrounding the singer’s whereabouts,
Despite suffering from a near-fatal overdose in 2018, the “I Love Me” artist explained why they didn’t want to completely sober post recovery and subsequent rehab stay. They told Glamour magazine,
“I called [my recovery case manager, Charles Cook] and was like, ‘Something’s not right. I’m living one side of my life completely legalizing and this other side following a program that’s telling me if I slip up, I’m going to die,’”
Demi also detailed their overdose on their YouTube channel. In their documentary series they candidly shared with fans the grip their addiction had on them from using meth and heroin to now having to receive injections to prevent getting high.
