Demi Lovato has issued her first statement, almost two weeks after her apparent drug overdose.

Though she's been understandably quiet on social media since the overdose, she's just broken her silence to deliver her first public statement since - and it'll give you so much hope.

"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction", the 25-year-old wrote.

"Sending love Demi. I've relapsed many times", he wrote. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet. Lovato said in a post on Instagram that she's "forever grateful" for her millions of fans and will "keep fighting" during her road to recovery.
