Demi Lovato: I Smuggled Cocaine on Airplanes

Are you ready for the bombshell of all bombshells?

Are you sitting down?

Do you have Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” waiting to be played?

All right. Demi Lovato has been super transparent about her eating disorder and emotional “issues,” but she has never quite come clean about her “alleged” drug addiction. Demi’s “team” decided that only letting Demi’s fans know about the self-harm and eating disorder was BETTER than telling people about her serious issues with drugs and alcohol.

Well, Demi just doesn’t give a f*ck anymore and has come completely clean about everything, saying she was doing coke every 30 minutes, smuggling drugs on planes, and drinking vodka from water bottles at nine in the morning. Yeah, some real Lindsay Lohan stuff.

Demi gave the gripping tell-all to “Access Hollywood.”

On smuggling drugs on planes – “Something I’ve never talked about before, but with my drug use I could hide it to where I would sneak drugs. I couldn’t go without 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine and I would bring it on airplanes. 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.”

On supposedly being “sober” –“I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car and this was just to get on a plane to go back to LA to the sober living house that I was staying at…I had all the help in the world, but I didn’t want it.”

On the moment she realized she needed help: “I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God… that is alcoholic behavior. [It’s] no longer, I’m young and rebellious and out having fun, it was, wow, I’m one of those people…I gotta get my s*** together. When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone. I’ve really never talked about this stuff before… I don’t know if I should be sharing this.”

On being bulimic and anorexic: “It was always there, but then I just acted on it at around eight or nine years old. I started overeating, compulsively overeating. I would bake cookies and then eat the whole pan. I went from doing that to being unhappy with my body. I went to just completely starving myself and that turned into throwing up and starving myself and it was just this crazy battle going on inside of me,” she said looking back. “It got really difficult [and] I would throw up and it would just be blood and it was something that I realized if I don’t stop this, I am going to die.”
