Their relationship was more than simply transactional.
Brandon Johnson, the guy who is said to have been with Demi Lovato before her infamous overdose finally commented on the singer's drug use. Ultimately, he blames the star for her hospitalization.
According to Johnson, their relationship began as a "flirty friendship," which later became "sexual." Other sources close to Demi deny the sexual nature of the relationship. Johnson said Demi would have him come over "to kick it." He also added that this was the type of hangout the singer had in mind when she contacted the pusher around 4 am the day she overdosed.
When he was asked if Demi was aware of the kind of drug she was consuming, Brandon Johnson responded in a slightly defensive manner.
"A hundred percent she knew what she was taking. I had disclosed to her that these are not, you know, pharmaceutical. They're much stronger. She understood fully... It was unfortunate what happened. For people to think that there was any misconception on my behalf is absolutely ridiculous."
Although he said that Demi "knew what she was taking," he revealed that he actually wasn't completely aware of the drug's composition himself. The pusher is known to cop his drugs in Mexico, which often includes batches that are laced with fentanyl.
"I'm not sure what is mixed in the pills.
Later, he affirmed to have learned something from the incident.
"It'd definitely a wakeup call for her obviously, but it opened my eyes too."
