The 25-year-old singer has always been very open about her past issues with drugs and alcohol, but it wasn't until she released her latest YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated, that fans got a glimpse of her experience with addiction. Demi revealed she had tried cocaine for the first time at 17, and after that, she went through a stage where she was "using daily."
"In this documentary, I'm 1000 percent sober and I get to really explain myself and apologise to my fans. There wasn't anything that was off-limits," she told People in Oct. 2017. "It's something I definitely feel relief from. Being so honest and open and talking about subjects that I have never talked about before is a big part of why I feel relieved . . . I feel like I got to really speak my truth."
