The untimely passing of Mac Miller was sudden and shocking to many fans and fellow celebs. But perhaps, few can relate to the tragedy as much as Demi Lovato can.
As you may be aware, the rapper reportedly passed away from a drug overdose, something Lovato barely survived just weeks before his tragic death.
She knows all too well it could have been her.
One insider tells HollywoodLife that ‘Demi has been rocked by Mac Miller’s death. She feels like that could’ve been her, not surviving an overdose. She has been crying and fighting back tears since she checked into rehab, and hearing about Mac’s death has only made things more real.’
The source went on to tell the outlet that ‘Even though she was never really close with Mac, she would like to go to his funeral to pay her respects if she can break away from rehab. Demi is doing her best now to stay sober and believes that Mac’s death, while sad, is something she can learn from and use to draw strength from. Demi feels like, he died so that she can live.’
As fans remember, the star was rushed to the hospital on July 24 where she remained for the following two weeks.
She was reportedly moved to an in-patient rehab where she could receive the proper help for her substance addiction.
Demi Lovato’s always been very open about her mental problems and addiction issues with her fans, and she has received help before but relapsed.
Regardless, Demi made it clear in an August 5 post that she ‘will keep fighting.’
‘I’ve always been really transparent about my journey with addiction. What I have learned is that this illness isn’t something that disappears or fades over time. It’s something that I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.’
