But now TMZ has an even more disturbing story, telling of how Lovato actually overdosed on Oxycontin that was laced with fentanyl. A source claims that Lovato texted a drug dealer to come to her house at 4 AM on July 24, where the two freebased Oxycodone on tin foil.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, fentanyl was the drug that famously killed Prince in what police described as an accidental overdose on April 21, 2016.
It's a true miracle that Demi Lovato didn't die from her alleged drug overdose as she reportedly mixed two of the most powerful and addictive opioids out there. TMZ cites sources with direct knowledge who said, "Demi had been at a party in WeHo following a birthday celebration at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip". Lovato entered rehab in Chicago for her addiction last week, where she'll spend several months, and the key to getting better is isolation. A source close to Lovato says, "The family is trying to make sure they eliminate all distractions and want her to be focusing on her health right now..."
This isn't the star's first trip to rehab as she previously spent time in a center in 2010 to deal with similar addictions.
Demi explained in an Instagram statement after she left the hospital, "What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time".
In order to follow this treatment plan, Lovato had to clear her schedule, meaning canceling her remaining "Tell Me You Love Me" tour dates. 'And I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery'.
Demi Lovato, at the Billboard Music Awards in May, will be getting treatment "for several months" following her apparent overdose.
