Demi Lovato Was Sexually Assaulted by Drug Dealer

More horrifying details surrounding Demi Lovato‘s near-fatal overdose are continuing to surface ahead of the release of her documentary.

The singer’s forthcoming documentary, Dancing With the Devil, which will be released on YouTube in four episodes starting on March 23, recounts the terrible experience, as reported by The New York Times in a profile and review of the doc on Tuesday (March 16).

Dancing With the Devil is filled with fresh admissions that betray previous obfuscations. Her overdose came after six years of sobriety, during which Lovato felt increasingly hemmed in by the measures her longtime managers took to help her stay on track. It caused three strokes, a heart attack and organ failure. She had pneumonia from asphyxiating on her vomit; she suffered brain damage from the strokes, and has lasting vision problems. (She can no longer drive and described the lingering effects as resembling sunspots.) The drug dealer who brought her heroin that night sexually assaulted her, then left her close to death,” the NYT reported.

Demi herself recently spoke to her relationship with weed and alcohol today, and why she’s not sober.

She also revealed some exciting news for fans waiting for new music.
