LOS ANGELES –
Demi Lovato’s drug overdose in 2018 led the singer to have three strokes and a heart attack, leaving her with physical limitations that still affect her

Lovato publicly reveals details of the near-fatal incident for the first time in “Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil,” a four-part documentary series that debuts March 23 on YouTube Originals

In the trailer, Lovato says doctors told her family she had five to 10 minutes to live

She says she doesn’t drive a car because she has blind spots in her vision and has had a hard time reading for a long time

Lovato said the lasting repercussions “are always there to remind me of what might happen if I ever find myself in a dark place”

The 28-year-old singer, who sported pink hair on roll call, has been working since the age of 10, when she appeared on the TV series “Barney & Friends”

She first went to rehab at 18, after struggling with bipolar disorder, anorexia and bullying

Lovato previously shared her private struggles in a 2012 MTV documentary and in a 2017 YouTube document in which she said she was still struggling with alcohol and cocaine addictions after going through rehab.

She said speaking publicly about these programs gave her the responsibility that kept her sober for six years until her relapse in 2018

Lovato’s family, along with Elton John and Christina Aguilera, are among those interviewed in the document which has been filmed for over a year

Lovato relaunched her singing career at last year’s Grammy Awards and sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic took hold
