It has been revealed that Demi Lovato overdosed on a cocktail which contained Oxycodone laced with fentanyl. Surprisingly, fentanyl is the same drug that caused the death of Prince and Lil Peep. Prince's death on April 21, 2016 was reportedly the result of a fentanyl overdose which led to an extremely high amount of the synthetic opioid being found in his blood, liver, and stomach. Lil Peep, who was found dead on his tour bus on November 15, 2017, had also died from an fentanyl and Xanax overdose. 

According to TMZ report, Lovato's overdose allegedly occurred after she freebased Oxycodone laced with fentanyl on a tin foil with the drug dealer at her home. The incident took place after the drug dealer arrived around 4 am on July 24, when Lovato was partying in WeHo following a birthday celebration at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip.

Apparently, the drug dealer is known for his notorious habit of purchasing dirty drugs from Mexico. The batch that he got for Lovato was laced with fentanyl — the same drug which resulted in the death of Prince.

Lovato could have faced a similar end as the dealer immediately fled the house when he found out that Lovato was breathing heavily. After Lovato's staff recovered her, she was injected with Narcan and hospitalized for two weeks before she was sent off to a rehab facility outside California.

Lovato, who celebrated six years of sobriety before the overdose told her fans in June: "I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.

"I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time. I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

There were rumors that Lovato was getting married to Wilmer Valderrama in the wake of her drug overdose. According to a source who spoke with In Touch, the drug overdose had actually brought the two closer. "Her overdose brought her and Wilmer back together… They found their way back to each other, so something good has come out of this nightmare. Wilmer feels the same way — he wants to get married, too."  However, Gossip Cop has stated that the claim is false since Lovato is under intensive treatment.
