How many people can say they've reached worldwide fame, experienced a brush with death, helped hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, and battled addiction, mental health issues, the pressures of fame, and bad breakups, all before turning 30?
That's Demi Lovato for you, and all of this becomes obvious in her new four-part documentary 'Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil.' In it she talks about her 2018 relapse, which included "a shopping spree" of drugs. "I tried meth. I mixed it with molly, with coke, weed, alcohol, oxycontin. And that alone should've killed me," she said, adding that soon after she became "addicted to crack and heroin."
Her overdose also wasn't the last time she touched heroin, she confessed. In another heartbreaking reveal, Lovato alleges that she was sexually assaulted by the unnamed drug dealer whose fentanyl she overdosed on. She later relapsed and called the same drug dealer to "to rewrite his choice of violating me," she says, adding that she called him and said, "I'm going to f--k you." Of course, she admitted, "It just made me feel worse." And that was not the first time she'd tried to make an assault right by "being in control" a second time, as she reveals in the doc: "I lost my virginity in a rape. I called that person back a month later." The singer explained that she was telling her #MeToo story publicly for the first time ever because she was scared of "people not believing me."
Demi Lovato has certainly lived many lives in this one she was given, from getting her start as a Disney star to branching out with music, television, activism, and more. Click through to read all about her incredible career—so far.
