On Sunday, the singer took to Instagram to break her silence about the incident, posting this message to her followers:


Noting that she has “always been transparent” about her history of addiction, Lovato wrote: “What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.”

She thanked God for “keeping [her] alive and well,” as well as her fans, family, friends, and the staff at LA’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
