Demi Lovato Slams 'Sickening' Stories After Overdose: 'Stop Writing About My Recovery'
More Sober Stars Who Went to Rehab

The pop star promises her fans she'll tell her story -- when she's ready.

Demi Lovato says she's "grateful to be alive" following her drug overdose back in July.

In a series of tweets posted to her Twitter account Friday night, the "Confident" singer offered a health update for the first time since leaving rehab last month. She said she's sober, but also slammed the media for the multiple stories printed about her, claiming that most of them are "soooooo inaccurate."

"I love my fans, and hate tabloids," Lovato wrote. "Don't believe what you read. People will literally make up stuff to sell a story. Sickening."

"If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF," she continued. "Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it's no one's business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME."

Lovato, who was just recently nominated for a Grammy for her song with Christina Aguilera, expressed that she hopes to one day open up about what led to her overdose.

"Someday I'll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today," she tweeted. "But until I'm ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal."

The singer added that she is currently taking time to be with family, "relax" and work on her "mind, body and soul." Lovato said she'll come back when she's "ready."

"I have my fans to thank for that," she pointed out. "I'm so grateful, truly. I love you guys so f--king much thank you."
