Details of the night that led to a near-fatal overdose for singer and actress Demi Lovato are being reported by TMZ, which says Lovato used oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl — the same drug that killed Prince and Lil Peep.
The website says Lovato texted a drug dealer at 4 a.m. on July 24, requesting that the dealer come to her house.
“Sources with direct knowledge tell us, Demi had been at a party in WeHo following a birthday celebration at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip. After the drug dealer got the text, he came to her house and we’re told the 2 of them freebased Oxycodone on tin foil,” TMZ reports. “Our sources say unbeknownst to Demi, the drug dealer had a bad habit of buying dirty drugs from Mexico … and the batch in question appeared to be laced with fentanyl.”
TMZ’s sources report that the dealer fled Lovato’s home after seeing her in bed breathing heavily.
Lovato has reportedly been in an out-of-state rehab facility after being hospitalized for two weeks.
