Just a few hours before Demi Lovato supposedly collapsed due to a heroin overdose, a video obtained by TMZ, showed the singer sitting around a table with some of her friends.
In the video published exclusively by the organization, Demi is seen in the corner of the shot, looking normal and healthy.
According to reports, the video was captured at the Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip, in Los Angeles, Monday night, where Demi and others celebrated the birthday of one of her cohorts, Dani Vitale.
Dani is one of the 25-year-old’s backup dancers. TMZ reported that, in the video which has relatively poor quality, the singer can be seen staring at the cake, so it’s hard to notice what her mental state was like. Her friends didn’t notice anything particularly strange about her behavior either.
After they went to her house for an afterparty, one of her friends discovered Demi laying in her bed unconscious. And when the paramedics arrived, they administered the anti-overdose drug, Narcan, which is typically used for opiate overdoses.
Thus far, it isn’t exactly clear what happened to Demi due to the fact that, for the most part, the media has reported on rumors rather than official reports from the hospital, the paramedics, or the police.
However, it was confirmed that Wilmer Valderrama, her ex-boyfriend, visited her at the hospital in Los Angeles two times since she was checked into the facility.
Sources claimed that Wilmer looked “visibly bothered” and “very serious.” As fans of the singer know, Demi and Wilmer dated for a long time, six years.
During a former interview, Lovato said that she and Wilmer would always be friends and that she still cared for him a lot. As it was previously reported, Demi’s struggle with addiction and mental health has been a long one.
