The first trailer for Demi Lovato‘s upcoming docuseries, Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, reveals terrifying details about her 2018 overdose. Doctors feared that the “Confident” singer, then 25, wouldn’t survive after she suffered three strokes and a heart attack during the ordeal.
“I had crossed a line that I had never crossed before… I snapped,” Demi Lovato shares in the trailer. “My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes [to live].” Paramedics rushed to Demi’s Hollywood Hills home on July 24, 2018 to respond to a medical emergency.
The singer was found unconscious inside, and was administered Narcan, a drug used in cases of opioid overdoses. She was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she spent a month recuperating from the medical emergency. Her overdose came one month after releasing the song “Sober,” in which she confesses to relapsing after six years of sobriety.
Though Demi Lovato has spoken out about the incident, the details she shared in Dancing With the Devil are by far the most detailed. “I had so much to say over the past two years, wanting to set the record straight about what it was that happened,” Demi says in the trailer.
