Demi Lovato says she had 3 strokes and a heart attack in new documentary trailer

Demi Lovato says she had 3 strokes and a heart attack in new documentary trailer

Demi Lovato opens up about her struggle with addiction and mental illness in her new documentary.

In the trailer for her new Youtube documentary, Demi Lovato says she wants complete transparency about her struggle with drug addiction and mental health issues. 

In 2018, fans were shocked when news of the singer’s overdose broke. She was found unconscious in her LA home and rushed to hospital, where she battled for her life. “I’ve had so much to say over the past few years,” Lovato says in the trailer. “I want to set the record straight about what it was that happened.”

Although she has been fairly open about her addiction in the past, the singer said there is a lot the public doesn’t know about her overdose and the public pressures that led to that moment.

“Anytime you suppress a part of yourself, it’s going to overflow,” she explained, revealing that her overdose brought her just minutes away from death. “I had three strokes. I had a heart attack. My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes.”

Dancing with the Devil


The four-part documentary series will dive deep into Lovato’s experience as a child actor, revealing traumas she’s survived and the detrimental effects of growing up in the limelight. It will also follow her ensuring musical career, her lifestyle leading up to her overdose and her recent comeback performing at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

In the trailer, the singer’s friends and family speak out about Lovato’s difficulties, saying that she was an expert at hiding what she was feeling. At 18 years old, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and was checked into rehab after battling with eating disorders and cocaine addiction.

“Everything had to happen in order for me to learn the lessons that I learned,” she told The Associated Press“I look back and sometimes I get sad when I think of the pain that I had to endure to overcome what I have. I’m so proud of the person that I am today. One of the main reasons I’m coming forward is so I never have to live that life again.”

The four-part documentary series Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil will debut on Youtube on March 23.
