Following the public overdose of former Disney star Demi Lovato, one of her friends and replacement dancers is spreading rumors that she's playing a role in administering drugs to the star.
Dani Vitale published a lengthy statement about her Instagram denying that she had not only drugged Lovato but had ever seen drugs in her life.
"I've never seen or seen a drug in my life, I do not do drugs, nor would I encourage them or pass them on to someone I love," Vitale wrote. "This UNTRUE story damages the lives of innocent people, including myself … It's NOT OK to bully someone for falsehood."
As previously reported, fans have come to Vitale after it became known that Lovato is celebrating the night before her overdose to celebrate the replacement dancer's 28th birthday.
Hours after Vitale claimed to have called her a night, Lovato was found in her home in Los Angeles after suffering an overdose. Lovato was hospitalized for two weeks before falling into the rehabilitation center to fight her addiction.
"The next morning, I woke up because I needed to be there for someone, and in the midst of everything, my whole being was ridden by sadness, confusion, love, and hopelessness," wrote Vitale. "While I fully concentrate on just one person's survival in all respects, like everyone else, I am committed to those we need, who need us."
The 28-year-old continued to crack the "UNTRUE" stories about her alleged involvement in Lovato's overdose, even revealing that she was plunging into a deep depression and not leaving her home weeks.
"I did not leave my house and bed for 3 weeks, ridden with severe depression, anxiety, fear, sadness, anger, disgust, deafness and many other adjectives that unfortunately I can not even put into words."  As previously reported, this is Vital's second statement on the subject. At the time of Lovato's overdose in July, she released a smaller statement on Instagram denying that she was there when Demi escorted off.
"I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and it will continue to be so, because she means the world to me just as she means to all of you." There is no need for negativity There are too many of them in this world. "
Vitale concluded her last statement by saying," Our words have meaning and consequences … "If you have nothing nice to say say, do not say it at all. & # 39; "
