Not long after admitting she was no longer sober in a new song, Demi Lovato has been hospitalized after overdosing on heroin. She was rushed to the E.R. around noon on Tuesday. Read on to see what led to her relapse.
Fans knew Demi had relapsed after listening to "Sober," her new song apologizing for falling off the wagon. “Momma I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore,” she sings on the track. “And Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor / To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober.”
She also appears to have parted ways with her former life coach, Mike Bayer, to whom she once attributed her sobriety.
In addition to being open about her self harm, drug addiction, and eating disorder, Demi also recently shared that she's the victim of sexual abuse. All of this could have potentially caught up to her and led to her relapse.
Although, heartbreak could've played a big role in her breakdown as well. The pop star's mom recently shared that Demi was "broken" following her split from ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. "I mean we were just so upset," she said. “He was just so gracious and caring, and he still is to this day. I believe he loves her, and she loves him."
While Demi celebrated six years of sobriety earlier this year, things quickly went downhill. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer opened up about her years of battling addiction in her documentary, Staying Strong.
“My first time doing coke I was 17, working on Disney Channel, and I was with a couple friends and they introduced me to it," she says in the film. "I was scared because my mom always told me your heart could just burst if you do it. But I did it anyways and I loved it." She also talked about living with depression and bipolar disorder.
