Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs
Demi Lovato admits to cocaine abuse.
Originally, the actress entered rehab in 2010 for emotional and eating disorder issues. Or, at least, this is hat the official line was at the time. But the real reason (or another reason) was the drugs abuse. In a recent interview she gave for Fabulous Magazine, the actress admitted that she did cocaine and that she had an alcohol issue as well.
“I’d make myself sick up to six times a day. My mum was worried, but because I was going through puberty I was having growth spurts so she assumed that was why I was thinner”, Demi said about her eating disorder.
And that wasn’t the worst she did. Though is hard for her to admit, Demi finally opened about the drugs issue. ” What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’”, she said.
“Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there”, she revealed.
And let’s not forget that she was also cutting herself. Recently, Demi admitted that she hasn’t stopped cutting meaning that she sometimes still does it. “It started with my wrists. People saw that, so I cut in places they couldn’t see. You do it because you feel so bad inside. You don’t know how to take it out other than on yourself”, she said.
It must be very painful for such a young woman to have had experienced such things. Demi is only 19. But once again we appreciate her for giving a lesson for her young fans who are facing the same issues.
