Demi Lovato‘s overdose last month was reportedly caused by fentanyl-laced Oxycodone.
On July 24, Lovato was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital following a drug overdose. Initial reports said the pop star had suffered a heroin overdose, which her representatives later denied.
Now, TMZ reports that the cause of Lovato’s overdose was Oxycodone laced with fentanyl.
On Aug. 5, the singer shared a statement on Instagram with news about her recovery.
“I’ve always been transparent about my journey with addiction,” the singer writes. “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.”
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery,” she continues.
