Dancing With The Devil: Demi Lovato 'Had Three Strokes And A Heart Attack' After 2018 Overdose
The pop-star, of former Disney Channel fame, said she had three strokes and a heart attack after taking a drug overdose back in 2018, adding that she was literally minutes from passing away when doctors saved her.
In a trailer for the four-part docu-series, Demi, 28, recalls: "My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes."

The 'Sorry Not Sorry' singer added that she had been "left with brain damage" which she "still [feels] the effects" of today.
For instance, Demi says she has to deal with blurry vision and blind spots, which affects her ability to read and to drive.
The Camp Rock star was rushed to hospital back in July 2018 after being found unconscious at her home, in Los Angeles, following an overdose.
The singer had reportedly taken opioids laced with fentanyl not long after she broke her six years of sobriety.

Directed by Michael Ratner, the documentary series is set to follow Demi's recovery since that summer of 2018, and showcase the battle it took to get her health back.
This is the third documentary for Demi, who previously starred in 2012 film Stay Strong, which centred around her recovery following a rehab stint, which prevented her touring with the Jonas Brothers.
She later released Stay Complicated in 2017, in which she told fans she had actually been using cocaine during her first documentary, sharing a candid exploration into her life and addictions.
In her most recent documentary, Demi tells the camera: "I've had a lot of lives, like a cat. I'm on my ninth life," as a friend says that she "should be dead".
Sir Elton John also makes an appearance in the preview for the show, reflecting: "When you're young, and you're famous, my God, it's tough."
Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil airs on February 23rd on YouTube.
