Demi Lovato has some shocking confessions about her cocaine and alcohol addictions. Read what she says in a new candid Access Hollywood interview, including smuggling cocaine on a plane. In a revealing new interview, Demi Lovato talks candidly about her cocaine addiction, even admitting that she would smuggle it on airplanes.
Demi told Access Hollywood Live, "I'm very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside."
She continued, "Something I've never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn't go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes."
She admitted, "I would smuggle it basically and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I'd sneak to the bathroom and I'd do it."
Demi talked about hiding her addiction, noting, "That's how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well."
Demi's shocking confession doesn't end there, as she explained her alcohol abuse as well, saying, "I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to L.A. to the sober living house that I was staying at."
It's surprising to hear that Demi was in such a downward spiral.
She added, "I had all the help in the world, but I didn't want it."
Demi explained, "When I hit that moment I was like, it's no longer fun when you're doing it alone. I've really never talked about this stuff before...I don't know if I should be sharing this."
She also revealed when she discovered she really needed help, saying, "I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, 'Oh my God...that is alcoholic behavior. [It's] no longer, I'm young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I'm one of those people...I gotta get my s*** together,'" she explained.
We're so glad she got it together--and continues to help others.
