Demi Lovato: ‘Promoters Gave me Drugs’

DEMI-Lovato DEMI Lovato has accused promoters of plying her with free drugs in a bid to get her to return to their clubs and restaurants.

The star — who was admitted to rehab for three months in 2010 after punching a backing dancer on a plane during a tour with the Jonas Brothers — claims people in Hollywood used to fall over themselves to give her illegal substances.

“Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass,” she said.

“I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.”

The singer — who also suffered from bulimia — admits she used to use alcohol and drugs to drown out her misery.

Asked about rumours she used to take cocaine, she told Fabulous magazine, “It’s something I don’t really want to talk about.

“What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’.”
