Promoters gave Demi Lovato drugs and alcohol

Demi Lovato‘s health has been up and down, forcing the young star into rehab in 2010. Now Demi admits she was given drugs and alcohol while underage. She doesn’t blame anyone for her abuse of illegal substances, but she did say, “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.” The 19-year-old singer/actress also added in her interview with UK’s Fabulous magazine, “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.” Demi has admitted to using drugs and alcohol to cope with her depression. “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.” Demi’s latest album, Unbroken, is doing well and she’s starting work on her fourth studio album. ~Renita Naraine

    Did she not know that would happen when she started acting or singing or whatever she was doing? There are so many celebrities who are able to not turn into addicts. And when are promoters ever your friends. Silly girl

    Way to milk the media train to try and stay relevant.
