Demi Lovato to detail near-fatal overdose on new YouTube series – report


Demi Lovato will reportedly open up on her 2018 overdose in her forthcoming YouTube series.

The Confident hitmaker spent two weeks recovering in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, followed by a stay in a rehab facility, after relapsing following six years of sobriety in July 2018.

After managing to get clean and return to her career, the star has now reportedly agreed to detail her experience in the new online series, in an effort to quash speculation surrounding the incident.

A source told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: β€œDemi’s experience in 2018 was horrific and will continue to affect her for years to come, so she hasn’t felt able to speak about it properly yet.

β€œBut she has written much of her upcoming album about the situation and wants to address exactly what happened to her in the hope she can prevent anyone else suffering a similar experience.”

Adding the star has been “nervous about speaking about what happened because she doesn’t want anything to be misconstrued,” the insider claimed Demi, “Decided her own series would be the best way as she will have the power to control exactly what is spoken about.

β€œMuch of it has already been done and the plan is for it to be released this summer,” they revealed.

The deal has apparently been overseen by manager Scooter Braun, who was behind Justin Bieber’s YouTube series, Seasons, earlier this year (2020), which supported his chart-topping album Changes.

WENN has reached out to Demi’s representatives for comment.
