In 2018 we heard that Demi Lovato had a near-fatal drug overdose while she was at the top of the music world. She subsequently underwent “extensive” treatment following her apparent drug overdose — and spent months in a rehab facility. She had been rushed to the hospital on Tuesday, July 24, and subsequently suffered severe “complications” from her reported overdose. But while recovering, Lovato wrote in a recent Instagampost, “I now need time to focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you all have shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out of this on the other side.” Ironically, she had just completed writing and recording this song "Anyone," which as she now says appears to have been a cry for help. Her friends revived her with Narcan, an emergency drug that can reverse narcotics overdoses.
TMZreported Lovato’s overdose was so “severe” that her life was in jeopardy. The singer reportedly suffered “complications” from the overdose, including a high fever and nausea.
At the Grammy Awards she did her first public performance of the new song which clearly was so emotional for her that she stopped and started it again. Watch.
