Demi Lovato admits 2018 near-fatal overdose wasn't 'the last time' she used heroin in docuseries

DEMI Lovato returned to heroin after leaving rehab, despite nearly dying from an overdose in 2018.

The troubled star made the shocking admittance in the newest episode of her Dancing with the Devil series.

Demi, 28, spoke about her relapse in episode three of the docuseries, which she titled "reclaiming power."

The performer shared that she called her drug dealer who also "sexually abused" her on the night of the overdose, immediately after leaving an "intensive trauma retreat."

"I wish I could say the last night that I ever touched heroin was the night of my overdose, but it wasn't," she revealed.

Her case manager Charles then recapped a phone call he received from the star saying: "Hey, I've relapsed and I need help."


"It was the same guy, I think," her best friend Matthew told the cameras, "and Sirah and I were NOT thrilled about that."

"I had just done a week-long intensive trauma retreat. The night that I came back from that retreat I called him," Demi remembered.

"I wanted to rewrite his choice of violating me, I wanted it now to be my choice.

"And he also had something that I wanted, which were drugs. I ended up getting high. I thought 'how did I pick up the same drugs that put me in the hospital?'"


"I was mortified by my decisions," she confessed.

"I called him back and I said 'no, I'm going to f**k you.' It didn't fix anything, it didn't take anything away, it made me feel worse, but that for some reason was my way of taking the power back."

"All it did was bring me back to my knees of begging to God for help."


Demi's documentary has shed light on her horrifying 2018 overdose, the events leading up to the night, and her rehabilitation afterward.

The international sensation was also raped on the same night, by her drug dealer Brandon Johnson.

The Disney Channel star accused the dealer of giving her drugs laced with fentanyl, taking advantage of her while she was nearly unconscious, and then leaving her for dead while on an outrageous mix of substances.

However, it has come to light that her abuser will not be investigated for the overdose, because such an incident is categorized as a self-induced medical emergency.


Though the pop star did not publicly speak her dealer's name, Brandon did admit to being with Demi that night.

According to various reports, the criminal was arrested in North Hollywood with opiates, a completely stacked self-loader handgun, and $10k in his pocket, just a month before the terrifying night.

In September of 2018, he had a warrant out for his arrest after missing a June court date for possession of cocaine and a DUI.

Later in 2019, he faced three misdemeanor counts for shoplifting and possession of heroin and ketamine, after allegedly trying to steal from a Macy's in San Fernando Valley.


Brandon and Demi go back to her teen years, as he was her supplier before she was forced to become sober at age 19.

After relapsing in 2018, she attended a party where the dealer was also present.

Despite not having Xanax and cocaine, Demi's regular drug of choice, he gave her meth and heroin which sent her on a downward spiral.

After a line of questioning from doctors about whether or not Demi had consensual sex on the night of her overdose, the singer recalled: “It wasn’t until maybe a month after my overdose that I realized, ‘Hey, you weren’t in any state of mind to make a consensual decision.'"
