Demi Lovato’s Mam Has Broken Her Silence On Her Daughter’s Overdose

Demi was hospitalised for the overdose back in July.

Demi Lovato’s mother Dianna de la Garza has given her first interview since her daughter’s overdose back in July.

Speaking on Newsmax TV, Dianna recalled the day she found out about the singer’s overdose, saying that it is still hard for her to talk about.

“It’s still a really difficult thing to talk about,” she said. “I literally start to shake a little bit when I start to remember what happened that day.”

Dianna recalled getting bombarded with text messages from loved ones expressing their concern and well-wishes for the singer. Still, she didn’t know what was going on. It wasn’t until she received a call from Demi’s assistant, Kelsey Kershner, that she learned the news.

“I was in shock. I didn’t know what to say,” Dianna said. “It was just something that I never, ever expected to hear, as a parent, about any of my kids.”

When she got the call, Demi’s assistant indicated that the singer was conscious, but wasn’t able to speak, which is when Dianna knew they “were in trouble.”

She told Demi’s sisters (Dallas and Madison) what had happened and they got to the hospital ASAP.

She just didn’t look good—at all. She was in bad shape. But I said to her, ‘Demi, I’m here. I love you.’ And at that point she said back to me, ‘I love you, too.’

Dianna credited her faith for helping her through the devastating time.
“From that point on, I never allowed myself to ever think that things weren’t going to be OK,
“I prayed, of course, all the way to the hospital, and my faith is strong. I think that was one of things that got me through the next couple of days when she was in critical condition. We just didn’t know for two days if she was going to make it or not.
“I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day when everybody found out what was happening, I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers and the good doctors and Cedars-Sinai.
“They were the best. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.”
Dianna then updated fans on the starts condition, saying:
“She’s happy. She’s healthy. She’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs.
“That in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family.”
