Lovato begins by addressing her "journey with addiction," calling it an illness and saying, "It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."
Lovato's statement does confirm she was in Cedars-Sinai, but does not confirm what if any drugs were in her system. Her family previously issued a statement on the day reports appeared, confirming she was "awake and with her family" but also requesting the media not speculate about what happened and that "[s]ome of the information being reported is incorrect."
Lovato finishes on a positive note, writing, "...I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting."
Refinery29 has reached out to representatives for Lovato for any further comment.
