Demi Lovato – the “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer who has frequently dished on what it was like to struggle with mental health and addiction – supposedly relapsed and detailed the entire experience in one of her latest songs. When Demi performed her track “Sober” at the Rock In Rio Festival on the 24th of June, the singer bellowed the lyrics through tears.
The song, which she released three days earlier, is one where she informs her fans and the world of her relapse. Previously, the 25-year-old songstress celebrated six years of sobriety.
The 25-year-old frequently talked about what it was like to deal with drugs and alcohol problems. In the documentary released in October 2017, Simply Complicated, Demi dished on the entirety of her experiences, from the beginning of the venture into drug use, all the way until she finally chose to ditch the lifestyle for good.
As it was previously reported, Demi once punched one of her backup dancers who told everyone that she had been abusing Adderall. The singer also said she had begun using cocaine at age 17 and would talk about sobriety with interviewers while high on drugs.
According to a source who sat down with us recently, “Demi is feeling terrible about it. There’s nothing worse for a recovering addict than to relapse, it’s such a depressing, guilt-ridden experience.”
“Because you know that you can do so much better, and it feels like you’re wasting so much time with an illness that is self-inflicted. What makes it worse is that eventually, an addict builds an identity around being either a former drug abuser or someone who has a relationship with a substance.”
The insider added, “when I was talking with Demi earlier, she said that it feels as though she let all of her fans down, and like they won’t trust in her again.”
However, there’s a silver lining to all of this. The singer is back in the gym and is already back on the path to sobriety and good health. After she delivered her heartfelt performance on stage, Demi took to Twitter to say that she was on the stage as a “new person with a new life.”
