The report comes a day after Demi broke her silence on her alleged overdose.

Lovato shared a statement on her Instagram, wherein she admitted that she is still struggling with addiction. Her team is now preparing to help her clean house of all the negative friends and influences in her life who might have contributed to her heartbreaking decision to break six years of sobriety with devastating consequences.

A source told People: 'She understands the severity of her overdose and the recovery has been very challenging for her.

'I loved it. I felt out of control with the coke the first time that I did it, ' explained Lovato. 'I guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him and he chose that over a family'.
