Brandon Johnson, the man accused of providing Demi Lovato with drugs prior to her overdose, claims she knew she was taking “dirty drugs” at the time. “I disclosed to her that [the pills] were not pharmaceutical … they’re much stronger,” he told TMZ. “She understood fully. It’s unfortunate what happened, but for [anyone] to think there was any misconception is absolutely ridiculous.” However, Johnson admitted he wasn’t sure what they took: “I’m not sure what was mixed in, to tell you the truth.” Sources previously claimed Lovato and Johnson freebased oxycodone that may have been laced with fentanyl, the same opioid that killed Prince. Johnson confirmed prior reports that he came to her home at 4 a.m. after she texted him, adding that they watched true crime shows before getting high.
