Demi Lovato gets candid about the after effects of her drug overdose; Says she can’t even drive a car anymore

While promoting her new docu-series Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, singer and pop icon Demi Lovato got candid about her near-fatal drug overdose. During a panel chat with the Television Critics Association, the 28-year-old singer said that she has suffered “brain damage” from her overdose, revealing that she can no longer drive a car. “I don’t drive a car, because I have blind spots on my vision,” Demi shared via E! News. 

 

“I also, for a long time, had a really hard time reading… It was a big deal when I was able to read out of a book, which was like two months later, because my vision was so blurry.” Demi also added that she was releasing the documentary "to help people who have been on the same path as I have", adding: "I wanted to set the record straight, and I wanted to reveal it all for my fans." Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil will also share footage from her last all the way up to the present, including talking about her engagement, and showing her drastic new haircut.

 

In the trailer for the docu-series, Demi revealed that she had three strokes and a heart attack after the 2018 overdose. The former child star was taken to hospital in July 2018 after being found unconscious at her Los Angeles home. The overdose, reportedly of opioids laced with fentanyl, came a month after she revealed she had broken six years of sobriety. Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil will premiere on YouTube on March 23. It was also announced that Demi Lovato is heading back to television.
