After finding Lovato’s body, Jackson called head of security, Max Lea.
“I’m really lucky to be alive,” Lovato said. “My doctors said that like I had 5 to 10 more minutes, and had my assistant not come in, I wouldn’t be here today.”
Lovato was transferred to Cedars-Sinai hospital and has previously revealed she suffered three strokes and a heart attack. Lovato claimed she was left with “brain damage.” The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer spent two weeks recovering in the hospital before being transferred straight to rehab.
“I was left with brain damage and I still deal with the effects of that today,” Lovato shared. “I don’t drive a car because I have blind spots in my vision.”
“It wasn’t until maybe a month after my overdose that I realized, ‘Hey, you weren’t in any state of mind to make a consensual decision,'” Lovato said, according to Page Six. “That kind of trauma doesn’t go away overnight.”
