Demi Lovato posts message to fans nearly two weeks after apparent overdose

Nearly two weeks after her apparent drug overdose, Demi Lovato is speaking out for the first time. On Sunday, the 25-year-old, who was hospitalized July 24 after a night of partying that nearly cost the singer her life, took to Instagram to share a letter to fans, friends, and family. “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,” she wrote.
