LOS ANGELES — Pop star Demi Lovato suffered a heart attack and three strokes in the wake of her drug overdose in July 2018, according to a docuseries that will be released next month.
According to The Associated Press, the 28-year-old singer revealed her health and addiction struggles in a new trailer for YouTube Originals’ “Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil,” slated to hit the streaming service on March 23.
“I’ve had so much to say over the past two years, wanting to set the record straight about what it was that happened,” Lovato, who overdosed in her Los Angeles home on July 24, 2018, said in the trailer.
Lovato “holds nothing back in this powerful four-part documentary series exploring every aspect that led to her nearly fatal overdose in 2018, and her awakenings in the aftermath,” reads a series description posted to Lovato’s official YouTube account.
“Director Michael D. Ratner is granted unprecedented access to the superstar’s personal and musical journey during the most trying time of her life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional and mental health,” the description adds. “Far deeper than an inside look beyond the celebrity surface, this is an intimate portrait of addiction, and the process of healing and empowerment.”
While speaking with reporters via video on Thursday, Lovato added that the overdose also left her with brain damage and blind spots in her vision, according to the AP.
