Posting her first statement abut the incident over the weekend, the singer thanked her family and the staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, who she said have “been at my side this entire time”.

Stating that she’s now focusing on her “sobriety and road to recovery”, Demi added: “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.”

Demi’s overdose came a month after she revealed she’d relapsed after six years of sober living, in a heartbreaking ballad titled ‘Sober’.

“Momma, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sings in the song’s chorus. “To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before.”
