Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 10.28.24 AM
Two weeks after being rushed to hospital following an apparent drug overdose, Demi Lovato has posted on Instagram to assure her fans she will keep fighting. Her post read:

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.

I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.

I want to thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.

I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out the other side

I will keep fighting 


It has been reported that Demi will go to rehab after she leaves hospital.We wish you the best, Demi!
