The man accused of providing Demi Lovato with the drugs that led to her overdose, is speaking out. Brandon Johnson claims the singer knew she was taking “dirty drugs” at the time.

TMZ captured a video of a slurring Johnson speaking out about his relationship with singer and the events that occurred prior to her overdose. In the video, he claims that he had a “flirty friendship” with the singer, which over time led to a “somewhat sexual friendship.” He claims that he and the singer “messed around,” but for the most part were “just friends.”

On the night before Lovato overdosed, Johnson said that she texted him to come over at around 4am, which isn’t something new. He said they often hung out and watched detective and crime shows together, which he says, Lovato is a big fan of. He admits there was drug use because Lovato, who has a stressful job, with stressful hours, needs to unwind from it all. He goes on to clarify that Lovato knew the pills were off-market, which meant the pills were much stronger.

A source had previously claimed that Lovato and Johnson freebased oxycodone that may have been laced with fentanyl, the same powerful opioid that killed Prince, according to Page Six. Though, he admits he wasn’t sure what was mixed with pills and therefore, can’t confirm if it was fentanyl or not.

“I disclosed to her that [the pills] were not pharmaceutical … they’re much stronger,” he claimed. “She understood fully. It’s unfortunate what happened, but for [anyone] to think there was any misconception is absolutely ridiculous,” Johnson said in the TMZ video.

Johnson said there was nothing unusual when he first showed up to Lovato’s house, other than she was “a little bit drunk.” He sums up the night as an unfortunate thing that happened, but hints that it was not intentional, while making it clear that she “was fine the whole time.”

“She fell asleep, it happens all the time,” he added. “We hang out, we do whatever we need to do and she ends up passing out. It was already like, 7, 8:00 [a.m.] at the time. She passed out, and I leave as I normally do. She was sleeping. I put her under the covers, tucked her in — sleeping,” Johnson said.

Lovato’s assistant found her unconscious shortly after and feared she had already died. She called 911, and asked that the EMTs not use sirens, as they make their way to her home. The operator denied her request and said that she couldn’t control that, while reminding the assistant that this was an emergency, so sirens were needed. 

Paramedics were able to revive Lovato with Narcan, an emergency drug that reverses the effects of an opiate overdose. She was then rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she was released two weeks later, and is now currently in rehab.

A source close to Lovato vigorously denied that she ever had a romantic or sexual relationship with Johnson and emphasized that she is committed to working on her sobriety, according to Page Six.

Since Lovato’s death, her fans have been pointing fingers at many in her circle, including one of her dancers who has denied she was even at her home that night. At this point, we only have Johnson’s side of the story, since Lovato has not spoken out about that night yet. Read the full story on Page Six here.
