Demi Lovato has spoken out for the first time since she was hospitalised for a suspected drug overdose last month.
The singer penned her first statement to fans about the incident on her Instagram.
“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” Lovato wrote Sunday afternoon.
“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side.”
Lovato closed out her statement by promising her fans, “I will keep fighting.”
Demi received well wishes of love and support from Jennifer Lopez, Sam Smith, Hailey Baldwin, Khloe Kardashian and many, many more.
Paris Hilton was the first to lend kind words to the singer, writing “Love you so much sis” on Twitter.
Meanwhile, J.Lo penned, “Oh baby…sending you love”.
