Demi Lovato's Overdose: 'This Is Absolutely What So Many People Feared' Says Source https://t.co/2o6dBKEq3A— People (@people) July 24, 2018
People Magazine received information from a source close to Demi and provided the below background and context for her recent struggles.
“This is absolutely what so many people feared would happen. She has not been sober for quite some time but more tragically, has had no interest in being sober.”
After splitting with life coach Mike Bayer, things got worse.
“The disease Demi has is a vicious liar and it’s been telling her for some time that she can use just a little, just one or two drinks, nothing too serious, nothing bad will happen, she can keep it under control.”
“And when she could, for a few months, it seemed like vindication to her, proof that she could keep it under control.”
“Things have been a total mess for months.”
“She and her team severed ties, and they played a large part in getting her sober years ago. She hasn’t been in a good place.”
