Lovato shared her struggles with substance abuse in 2010 when she withdrew from a concert tour with Jonas Brothers and got admitted into a rehabilitation facility. Following the treatment, Lovato revealed that she often used cocaine. The singer also confessed that she battled with alcoholism, eating disorders and that she was bipolar.
Tryst with Cocaine
Untold details about the popular singer’s struggle with cocaine were also revealed in her documentary ‘Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated.’ It revealed that Lovato was bullied in school which often made her feel isolated. Talking about her early experiences with cocaine, Lovato said that she was seventeen years old, working on Disney Channel when she was first introduced to the world of cocaine by a couple of friends. She confessed that she felt out of control but she still loved it. “I was scared because my mom always told me that your heart could just burst if you do it. But I did it anyways, and I loved it the first time that I did it.” she said.
Another major factor that coerced Lovato to take to drugs was her father’s addiction to drugs. “I guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him, and he chose that over a family,” she said. Lovato’s father struggled with addiction and that strained his relationship with Demi Lovato and her sister in a big way. Her father’s presence is clearly embedded in her music. According to Lovato’s close sources, strained relationships, bullying, pressure of fame at an early age, expectations and not being able to be herself were what caused her to struggle with herself.
