Lovato Admits Cocaine Addiction

It hasn’t been a good week for Disney kids. Demi Lovato said Tuesday she once “couldn’t go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine” and that she hit rock bottom at age 19. “I would bring it on airplanes,” the former Disney star said. She admitted she would smuggle it to avoid detection—even though she was traveling with a “sober companion.” Lovato said she realized she had a problem when she was drinking out of a Sprite bottle filled with vodka at 9 a.m. Lovato and her mother both admitted to having eating disorders, and the actress said she began binge eating and throwing up afterward as early as age 8.
