A former Disney TV star has made a confession to Access Hollywood, revealing during an interview that she was so addicted to cocaine that she would smuggle the drug onto planes and ingest it while in the air.
Demi Lovato, 21, told Access Hollywood, "I would smuggle it, basically, and just wait until everyone in first class would go to sleep and I would do it right there. I’d sneak to the bathroom and I’d do it. That’s how difficult it got and that was even with somebody [with me]. I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well.”
She also told about heading to the airport with a Sprite bottle filled with vodka, adding that she had a lot of help but that she didn’t want it. Lovato, who starred in “Camp Rock” and “Sonny with a Chance,” went into rehab in 2010.
Lovato, who has written a memoir, said she is “very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease — I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside.”
