Demi Lovato Reveals Sneaking Cocaine On Planes And Casual Sex In Tell-All Documentary
Demi Lovato doesn’t want to keep secrets anymore and isn’t afraid to share the truths of her tumultuous past. The 25-year-old singer revealed some shocking details about her drug abuse despite being a squeaky clean Disney Channel star. Demi unleashed some unbelievable details about her life including drug abuse, casual sex, the dating app she uses, and being admitted to a psychiatric ward in her new YouTube documentary titled Simply Complicated, which you can watch below.
While Lovato was working for the Disney Channel at the age of 17, she first experimented with alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. “I loved it,” Demi said about coke. “I felt out of control with the coke the first time that I did it.” With addiction in her family, it only increased her desire for drugs. “My dad was an addict and an alcoholic,” Lovato said. “I guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him and he chose that over a family.”
The pop star says she struggled with cocaine abuse and sobriety back in 2010, when she was only 18-years-old. She received inpatient treatment after a two-month bender where she was abusing drugs daily. “I just came to a breaking point; the next 12 months were extremely difficult.” She said. “I wasn’t ready to be sober. I was sneaking cocaine on planes, I was sneaking it in bathrooms, sneaking it throughout the night,” Demi said. “I was using while I had a sober companion, and I went through about 20 different sober companions. I would sneak out and get drugs, I would fake my drug tests with other people’s pee.” Then she almost overdosed on a deadly combination of cocaine and Xanax. “I started to choke a little bit, and my heart started racing. I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, I might be overdosing right now,'” she says.
Lovato was hospitalized after locking herself in her bedroom and swallowing pills. “The nurse is checking her in. The bottle of pills is there, she grabs the pills, she then downs all the other pills and says, ‘You fucking bitch! If I just tried to kill myself, why would you give me access to pills?'” Lovato’s specialist said. Demi was then admitted to the psychiatric ward. “I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t feel guilty. I didn’t feel embarrassed,” she says.
