Demi Lovato looked to Justin Bieber for inspiration following her 2018 overdose.

The star was found unconscious at her Los Angeles home in July 2018, with the near-fatal incident prompting her to seek specialist help on her journey to sobriety.

The Confident star has since made a full recovery and, speaking during her guest-hosting stint on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday (March 6, 2020), the singer told guest Justin he helped her through the difficult time.

“When I struggled last year, I know I looked at you as an inspiration because you’ve been through this and you’ve come out of the other side and I really just admire the man that you are today,” she said.
Changes star Justin replied: “Thank you for saying that.”

Justin, 25, has turned his life around after a difficult few years, which saw him addicted to marijuana and pills, and he spoke openly about his struggle in his recent YouTube documentary Justin Bieber: Seasons.

Meanwhile, Demi, who recently celebrated a year of sobriety, made her musical comeback at the Grammys last month, performing her single Anyone, and the star dropped her empowerment anthem I Love Me on Friday.
