Demi Lovato's recent overdose shocked her fans around the world. The star had been sober for six years before suffering a near-fatal relapse. Now, the terrifying cocktail of drugs that sent Lovato to the hospital has been revealed, according to reports from TMZ.
On July 24, Lovato was having a party at her Los Angeles home when she overdosed and was found unconscious. According to reports, Lovato had smoked Oxycodone laced with fentanyl, which is the same drug that killed Prince and rapper Lil Peep.
TMZ alleges that the near-lethal dose of Oxycodone and fentanyl was given to Lovato by a drug dealer she had known since April.
Nearly two weeks after her overdose, Lovato wrote a message to her fans, saying, "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.”
It was originally reported that Lovato had overdosed on heroin, Lovato's management has yet to confirm the exact details of her overdose.
