Demi Lovato is moving forward and putting her near death behind her. According to TMZ, the singer is putting the home where she overdosed on drugs in July on the market.

She put the Hollywood Hills home up for sale for $9.495 million. She bought the house in September 2016 for $8.3 million.

This is where Demi sadly OD'd on Oxycodone laced with fentanyl. She was revived with Narcan, and she spent 10 days in the hospital.

Demi has not returned to the house. She went directly from the hospital where she was being treated to a rehab center where she's getting help for her drug addiction.

TMZ reports that the house has been a thorn in Lovato's side since she bought it. In January 2017, the house was in danger of sliding down the side of a mountain after the ground was compromised by storms.

The house is 5,546 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

According to a source, Demi is doing well one month after her overdose. The overdose, which happened on July 24, left the singer in the hospital and fighting for her life. 

"She’s in recovery and doing great,” a source told PEOPLE.

The source added, "This is a long road.”

Another source told PEOPLE at the time of her overdose: “She understands the severity of her overdose, and the recovery has been very challenging for her."

They added, “She wants to be sober. She wants to get help. She understands that it will take a lot of work and commitment to stay healthy, but this is what she wants."

On Sunday, August 5, Demi Lovato issued her first statement since her apparent overdose on July 24. The 25-year-old singer and actress posted the statement on Instagram.

In the post, Lovato thanked her fans for their support. She also revealed where she'll go from here.

The post was an all-text note without a caption. It reassured those who have been following her story since she was rushed to the hospital for what appeared to be a heroin overdose that she's taking this seriously.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer wrote, “I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet." 

She went on to thank everyone who has helped her. She also thanked God for allowing her to keep her life.

“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time.”

She also thanked her family, her team, and the staff at the hospital where she was treated. Likewise, she confirmed that the overdose was indeed life-threatening.

“I want to thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you.”

She continued: “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out the other side.”

Lovato closed to statement with what is likely her motto for the coming months: “I will keep fighting.”
