In recent Hollwood news, DEMI LOVATO has revealed that club promoters used to give her free drugs and alcohol to get her to make appearances at their clubs.
The former Disney star has been hounded by cocaine addiction rumors ever since she went to rehab in 2010, which happened after she punched a backup dancer while she was touring with the Jonas Brothers. But despite the constant rumors, Demi has never come out and admitted anything… until now.
Although she was reluctant to confess outright, Demi revealed how she got started with drugs in a recent in-depth interview with Fabulous:
“Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my a**.”
The “Give Your Heart A Break” singer added:
“I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.”
Then why did she accept them in the first place? The former “Sonny With A Chance” star explained:
“I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’.”
Now that she has been to rehab and is trying to get her life back together, it would appear that Demi has left the drugs and alcohol behind her.
However, her eating disorder (which was the main reason she went to rehab) is another story. She admitted:
“I’ve slipped up a few times, but each time I have learned from it, and it’s become further apart.”
