After being bullied as a teenager, Lovato, 30, said she turned to alcohol and drugs as a way to escape.

She admitted that throughout her teenage years, she frequently stole booze from her stepfather before switching to cocaine when she was 17 because she “liked it too much.”

Demi claimed to have maintained sobriety for six years, from the time she was 20 to the time she was 26, but in 2018 she overdosed dangerously, leaving her legally blind and brain damaged after suffering a heart attack and three strokes while hospitalized.

The former Disney star admitted she would steal beer from her stepfather’s fridge and would drink ‘alone’, which ‘should have been a major red flag’.
