We knew she was overwhelmingly consumed with her horrible addictions…
But had no idea Demi Lovato's trouble with illegal drugs and alcohol ran so deep!
In a new candid interview, the 21-year-old singer is speaking out about her past substance abuse issues, confessing she used to manipulate people (including a sober companion) to believe every front and lie she threw at them. She shared:
“I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside."
And then Demi-corn dropped a maJOR coke bomb!
The former Disney starlet was so buried in her drug habits, she couldn't go an hour without doing cocaine!
Demz revealed how she would sneak it on airplanes and hide her issue by waiting until everyone fell asleep:
“Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well.”
And if you thought that's when she hit rock bottom—you're sooo wrong!
After violently throwing up from drinking an entire soda bottle of vodka before a flight, she knew it was time to make a change:
“I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at…I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it. When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone. I’ve really never talked about this stuff before… I don’t know if I should be sharing this."
We applaud Demi for taking a journey back, and being unbelievably open!
Since she's speaking out about an issue that plagues so many, we can only hope her honest conversations with the media triggers change for others!
You stay strong Dem-Dem!
