Demi Lovato has opened up on her first introduction to opiates aged just 13, during an appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast.

The 30-year-old singer, who has been vocal on her addiction struggles, noted how she had already 'started drinking' at the time.

“I started experimenting for the first time when I was 12, or 13. I got into a car accident and they prescribed me opiates,” she said.

“My mom didn’t think she would have to lock up the opiates from her 13-year-old daughter but I was already drinking.”
