According to Demi Lovato (27), the fatal day on which she almost succumbed to an overdose of drugs was due to an eating disorder that the singer struggled with for years. She said this in the ‘Pretty Big Deal’ podcast.
“I threw myself into the abyss by exercising too fanatically and putting myself on strict diets”
The singer was rushed to emergency room in a hospital in Los Angeles in June 2018, after taking an overly intense combination of alcohol and drugs, which almost cost her her life. According to her, it was because she was constantly looking at her appearance and trained drowsy to look good and slim. “I threw myself into the abyss by exercising too fanatically and putting myself on strict diets.”
“If you don’t have people around you who can signal the signs of an eating disorder, then it goes wrong. I needed someone who told me that going to the gym three times a day might have been a bit over the top. But I had one I almost lived in that gym, had meetings with people there, ate a little and then continued obsessive training. That’s not how lucky should be, that’s not freedom, “says Demi.
