London: Demi Lovato has spoken out about the death of `Glee` star Cory Monteith.

The 20-year old, who in the past has been in rehab and cut herself in 2011, called addiction a `disease` and said that the tragic star didn`t mean to overdose or kill himself, the Mirror reported.

The ` X-Factor ` judge claimed that a moment of vulnerability is all it takes for slipping back into the addiction.

She explained that it`s not a choice and nor did Monteith choose to die.

The former Disney star wished his girlfriend, Lea Michele, a lot of strength.
