Two weeks after being rushed to hospital following an apparent drug overdose, Demi Lovato has taken to social media to assure her fans she will “keep fighting”.
Take a look:
“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.
“I want to thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out the other side.
“I will keep fighting ❤️
According to TMZ, Demi was found “unconscious in her bed after a long night of partying” when emergency responders were called to her house last month.
It’s believed Demi will go to rehab when she leaves hospital.
