American singer Demi Lovato has opened up about the horrific event that happened in her life when she was a teenager.
Said that she was raped as a teenager while working for the Disney Channel in the late 2000s. She further revealed that she was raped by someone who faced no consequences when she revealed the incident.
“I called that person back a month later and tried to make it right by being in control, and all it did was just make me feel worse.”
She did not reveal the name of the rapist but hinted that she “had to see this person all the time” afterward.
“Here we go again,” the singer told her followers ahead of the release of her YouTube docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil.
During the story, she also opened up about how she dealt with drug and alcohol addiction in 2018.
Moreover, she has also explained about her eating disorder and control by her management team in 2018. She said she was “left for dead” by her drug dealer after he raped her during the overdose, and that she saw him during a one-time relapse after a stay in a treatment facility in an effort to assert control.
She revealed that both times were “textbook trauma re-enactments, and I really beat myself up for years, which is also why I had a really hard time coming to terms with the fact that it was a rape when it happened”.
