In an open letter to her fans, Lovato writes, “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.”
She continues, “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.”
Lovato added, “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.”
She concluded by writing, “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 on the other side. I will keep fighting.”
As The Blast first reported, Lovato was uncooperative with police and would not tell responders what drugs she took when questioned about her overdose on July 24.
Law enforcement sources told The Blast that Lovato — along with other people at the home when they arrived — would not tell officers what drugs Lovato had taken that led to her overdose.
As The Blast previously reported, sources very close to Lovato dispute that the “Sober” singer had taken heroin.
