Demi Lovato ‘overdose on Oxycodone likely laced with fentanyl’

Demi Lovato reportedly suffered her near-fatal overdose after smoking Oxycodone possibly laced with fentanyl — the same drug that killed Prince and rapper Lil Peep.

According to TMZ, the 25-year-old singer contacted a drug dealer via text message in the early hours of July 24 to join her at her Hollywood Hills house, after she attended a party at popular Sunset Strip bar Saddle Ranch.

The website reports that the pair smoked painkiller Oxycodone ‘on tin foil’ at her home and, unbeknown to the star, the batch was likely laced with particularly potent fentanyl as the dealer had a ‘bad habit of buying [tainted] drugs from Mexico’.

The drug dealer, who Demi is said to have been using the services of since April, allegedly fled the star’s house after noticing that she was breathing heavily in bed — leaving her staff to discover her at 11:30 AM, reports TMZ.

She is said to have been revived with Narcan before being rush to hospital, where she remained for two weeks as she recovered.
