Throughout the greater part of her life, Demi Lovato has struggled with addiction issues. She has now revealed that she was sexually assaulted by her drug dealer after she overdosed in July 24, 2018. This has come out in her new documentary, Dancing With the Devil. She has said, "I didn’t just overdose, I also was taken advantage of. I’ve had my fair share of sexual trauma throughout teenage, child years. When they found me, I was naked, I was blue. I was literally left for dead after he took advantage of me, and when I woke up in the hospital, they asked if I had consensual sex."
She says she remembered a moment and agreed that she had consensual sex. Later, she realized that it was a violation. She said, "There was one flash that I had of him on top of me. I saw that flash, and I said yes. It actually wasn’t until maybe a month after my overdose that I realized, ‘Hey, you weren’t in any state of mind to make a consensual decision.'" The lady was in a trauma retreat for a week following the overdose. It seems she then called up the dealer who had sold her heroin laced with fentanyl and left her to die. She says, "I wanted to rewrite his choice of violating me. I wanted it now to be my choice, and he also had something that I wanted, which were drugs."
She said after the call, she felt the urge to take drugs once again, and was mortified at her decision. Demi Lovato went to rehab for a couple of months and recovered immensely. The singer was first admitted to rehab in 2010 after she beat up a dancer in the Jonas concert. In 2018, she had celebrated six years of sobriety. But she chucked that a month later. She reminisces, "I remember thinking to myself, I don’t even know why I’m sober anymore. I’m so miserable." It seems she asked for cocaine and Xanax but the dealer only had crack and heroin. It seems she always wanted to try heroin.
By June 2018, she had become addicted to heroin. The overdose happened at her Hollywood Hills home where she used heroin laced with the synthetic opioid fentanyl. Her assistant Jordan Jackson found Demi unresponsive and called the paramedics. They used the drug Narcan to save her life.
