Demi Lovato is reportedly selling the home in which she suffered her apparent overdose in July.
The 26-year-old singer was rushed to hospital after being found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home in late July following a suspected drug overdose, and it has now been reported the star – who is currently in rehab – is looking to get rid of the house she was found in.
According to TMZ, the ‘Sober’ hitmaker has listed the home in California for just under $9.5 million, two years after she first bought the property for $8.3 million in September 2016. The home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms and comes on a 5,546 square foot lot.
TMZ reports that the home has been problematic for Demi ever since she bought it, as in January 2017 – just months after she moved in – the property was in danger of sliding down the mountainside after the ground beneath it was compromised by storms.
In July that year, the LA Department of Building and Safety determined that the issue with the hillside had been corrected, and the building was perfectly safe once again. The decision to sell the property comes after it was reported Demi’s alleged drug dealer Brandon Johnson will not be investigated over the incident, because overdoses are treated as a “medical emergency”. Brandon had previously claimed the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer “knew the risks” of taking drugs at the time, and “100 percent knew what she was taking”.
He said: “She texted me at 4 am because she’s a girl and she wanted to kick it. We hung out. She has long hours and stressful days so she wanted to unwind. 100 percent she knew what she was taking. They’re aftermarket pills and they’re much stronger. She [Demi] understood fully and it’s unfortunate what happened.
“It’s a wake-up call for her and it opens my eyes to the dangers. They’re fun, but they can be harmful. I’d hate to hurt anybody. I hope she’s OK. But for anyone to think there was any misconception on my behalf is absolutely ridiculous. I’m not here to hurt anybody. I care for her very much, she means a lot to me. It’s just something that happened. It’s unfortunate.”
