Five months after suffering a relapse that resulted in a near-fatal overdose, Demi Lovato reached out to fans by telling them to ignore salacious stories about her in the tabloids.
She then posted another Instagram Story message Monday to admit she’s “so grateful for the lessons I’ve learned” following the accidental overdose.
Lovato shared, “So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year. I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless.”
Her latest post comes after she ranted in a series of tweets: “Don’t believe what you read. People will literally make up stuff to sell a story. Sickening.”
The 26-year-old continued by telling fans that if she has anything she thinks they need to know, “I will tell them MYSELF.” Urging the press to “stop writing about my recovery,” she declares that she is “sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.”
Regarding her relapse, she promises to “someday” reveal “exactly what happened, why it happened and what my life is like today,” but urges people to “stop prying and making up s**t that you know nothing about.”
Furthermore, she points out that any so-called “source” cited in a tabloid report “isn’t actually a part of my life,” adding she “would love to set the record straight on all the rumours out there but I literally don’t owe anyone anything so I’m not going to. All my fans need to know is I’m working hard on myself, I’m happy and clean and I’m SO grateful for their support.”
