Demi Lovato Talks About Cory Monteith Drug Addiction

Ever since Glee actor Cory Monteith’s body was found last Saturday at a Vancouver hotel, there has been an outpour of emotion from fans and celebrities. In a new interview, Demi Lovato speaks up about Monteith and relating to his personal struggles.
The “Made in the U.S.A.” singer, who underwent treatment for emotional and physical issues in January 2011, opened up to People: “All it takes is one moment of vulnerability to get slipped into your addiction,” she said. “It’s not a choice. Nobody chooses to use. He didn’t choose to die. It was the disease. It can creep up on you at any moment. It only takes one moment of relapse to potentially die. It’s really scary, but I’m really hoping that from this, people are able to see this is a very, very, very dangerous disease.”
When it comes to dealing with her own personal struggles, the 20-year-old singer said she tries to distance herself from drugs, alcohol, and the club scene in order to protect herself: “I just don’t put myself in those situations where I’m going to be at those 21st birthdays. I don’t go to clubs. I just know it’s something I can’t do without being triggered. And that’s okay.”
The singer revealed that she’s “really, really broken” over the death of the 30-year-old actor, but her thoughts are especially with his girlfriend, Lea Michelle.
“The main person in my thoughts is Lea,” Lovato said. “I am praying for her so hard and I love her so much. I’m wishing her a lot of strength right now.”
