Back in March, Demi Lovato celebrated six years of being sober. But apparently, those six years were a struggle for the pop star, according to a new report.
A source tells Us Weekly that Demi has struggled with her sobriety since 2010. They explained to Us, "Demi never wanted to be a role model. Her sobriety over the last six years was a fight every single day." The insider added, "After she finally got clean, her team was very hard on her and treated her like she was a kid. It's so hard to have all these eyes on you all the time."
In March, Demi wrote on Twitter of being six years sober, "Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible."
Just three months later, Demi released her newest single "Sober," in which she revealed that she broke her six-year sobriety. In the chorus she sings, "Momma, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore/ And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor/ To the ones who never left me, we've been down this road before/ I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore."
Last week, Demi was hospitalized for an overdose after a night of partying. She was found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home, and although she wouldn't say which drugs she took, she was revived with Narcan, which reverses the effects of opioids. Lovato is currently still in the hospital and is suffering from complications related to the overdose, experiencing extreme nausea and a high fever. However, the 25-year-old is expected to make a full recovery.
Demi has not yet decided whether or not she will be going to rehab after she is released from the hospital, and according to a report, she is still so ill that she is in no shape to discuss the topic at the moment, as she is still trying to recover.
Sources tell TMZ that they are unsure of how Lovato will get the message that rehab is something she really needs. They say, "We just don't know where her head is at." Surely Demi's focused on her recovery following her overdose, but once she does leave the hospital, she can't be forced to go to rehab, as it has to be her decision to go. However, Demi has been to rehab before for an eating disorder in 2010. So, she could be receptive to going this time.
