Brandon Johnson is the man who provided Demi Lovato with the drugs that caused her overdose and claims she knew exactly what she was taking on the night she overdosed. The way Johnson explained it, the singer seems to have been calling on the drug dealer often to “unwind” a bit.
“She sometimes has such a long day, stressful hours, stressful job, so unwinds a little bit,” said Johnson to TMZ.
Brandon said Lovato “100 percent she knew what she was taking” claiming to have went over the drug and explaining to her what they were dealing with. “I disclosed to her that these are not a pharmaceutical, they’re aftermarket pills, much stronger. She understood fully. It was unfortunate what happened.”
After the overdose, there were many claims that Johnson had been working with dirty drugs and Demi was unaware. However, he made sure to clear his name from those claims.
“For people to think there was any misconception on my behalf, it was absolutely ridiculous. I’m not here to hurt anybody. I care for her very much. It means a lot to me,” he said.
Demi Lovato is currently in rehab and on the road to recovery, with the love and support of her family, friends and fans.
