Demi Lovato has finally broken her silence after her drug overdose.
The Sorry Not Sorry singer has released her first official statement on Instagram regarding her drug overdose last month.
The singer has promised her fans that she’ll keep fighting.
It was said that the former Disney star was set to be released from hospital over the weekend.
A source had told People Magazine that Lovato, “has agreed to rehab and will go straight to an inpatient facility.”
“It’s her choice to go to rehab. This is not anything that can be forced,” the source said.
The 25-year-old has struggled with substance abuse from a very young age. In June, the singer revealed that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.
In Lovato’s 2017 album Tell Me You Love Me, her latest single Sober is about her drug addiction, “To the ones who never left me / We’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
Lovato first went to rehab at the age of 18 for drugs, self-harm and an eating disorder.
In her 2017 YouTube documentary Simply Complicated, the singer opens up about using cocaine and quoting: “Last time I did an interview this long, I was on Cocaine.”
“My dad was an addict and an alcoholic,” she said.
“Guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him, and he chose that over a family.”
She also spoke about how she nearly overdosed.
“I went on a bender of like, two months where I was using daily.
“There was one night when I used a bunch of coke and I popped a few [prescription] Xanax bars, and I began to choke a little bit.
“My heart started racing, and I thought to myself, ‘Oh my God, I might be overdosing right now.’”
Many of Lovato’s friends have shown support commenting on her Instagram post.
