Demi Lovato has opened up about her 2018 drug overdose for the first time, revealing in a new documentary that she was minutes from death.
Lovato said she was still living with the effects of the overdose, including brain damage and blind spots in her vision which prevent her from driving.
The US pop star, 28, was taken to hospital after she was found unconscious at her home in Los Angeles.
She had been sober for six years after treatment for alcohol and drug addictions.
Lovato spoke about her overdose in a trailer for her new YouTube documentary series, Dancing With The Devil.
“I had three strokes,” Lovato said. “I had a heart attack. My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes.”
In an interview with the Associated Press, the singer said the overdose had left her with “brain damage”, adding, “I still deal with the effects of that today.”
In a 2017 documentary, she talked about the extent of her substance abuse during her teen years, and in 2018, Lovato released a song titled Sober, in which she revealed she had broken six years of sobriety.
