His family was tipped off about his location in downtown, and Eric asked the person to ensure his brother didn’t leave and was as comfortable as could be

the same night is when he died when Eric was going to pick him up to take him to hospital

after confirming and leaving to make hospital arrangements, he found him dead

Fred said the family had tried to help him out of his addiction, sadly he kept running away

It’s been 1 year since his death, we went through a lot, this is somebody we didn’t spend time growing up with, he would disappear coz of mihadarati, so from high school he would disappear, and my dad being a policeman would look for him and find him, and he would disappear again, and we would miss him. It affected Eric and my sister alot.

The brother died in 2018, and a year later Fred reminisced his death

it’s a good lesson. I am a witness that if you have the chance to stop this kind of life, stop it….

Demi Lovato’s mother confirms singer is 90 days sober

She was rushed to hospital after an overdose in July.

And Demi Lovato’s mom revealed on Friday that the singer is doing well in her rehab treatment, now sober for 90 days.

Dianna De La Garza told Maria Menounos’ Sirius XM show that she is ‘proud’ of her 26-year-old daughter for working on her sobriety.

Paramedics were called to the former Disney star’s $8.3million four-bedroom Hollywood Hills mansion on July 24 and are believed to have revived an ‘unconscious’ Demi with the opiate antidote Narcan.

Dianna also admitted she is unsure of what caused her daughter to relapse.

‘I can’t really say for sure. I really don’t know,’ she said.

Dianna previously admitted she was still ‘shaken’ by the former X Factor judge’s overdose, but said her daughter is now ‘happy’ and ‘healthy’ as she works toward her sobriety.

She explained: ‘It’s still a really difficult thing to talk about. I literally start to shake a little bit when I start to remember what happened that day. [Demi’s assistant called and] said, ‘Demi overdosed’. So, I was in shock. I didn’t know what to say. It was just something that I never, ever expected to hear, as a parent, about any of my kids.

I just feel like the reason she’s alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day when everybody found out what was happening.

‘I don’t think she would be here if it hadn’t been for those prayers and the good doctors and Cedars-Sinai. They were the best. I couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to save her life.

‘She’s happy. She’s healthy. She’s working on her sobriety, and she’s getting the help she needs. That in itself encourages me about her future and about the future of our family,’ she added.

To make matters worse, the one-time poster boy for Calif Records changed his lifestyle, spending time in clubs and and bars to the extent of sleeping at the bar counter.

“I had 1,000 friends before things went south. They all disappeared and ignored my phone calls. Soon as they start seeing my posters as I try to make a comeback, they have now started crawling back.”
