The disheveled fitness guru revealed they had tentative plans to meet on Tuesday — the day of the OD. "On Monday, she asked me 'are we training tomorrow too?' So you can imagine how I feel when I found out about the overdose.”

Martin recalls Lovato hanging on by just a thread in the hours leading up to her horrific hospitalization. "She's not healthy, she's just alive,” she said, adding Lovato insisted she was "okay" and "just tired."

But the trainer didn't buy it. "I knew something was wrong. The last thing she told me was 'I love you so much.’"

She tells, Lovato would sometimes be a no-show to her scheduled sessions which would scare her into thinking the worst.

“I would ask myself what happened, where is she, she never showed. It's a very bad feeling. And then it actually happened."

As reported, Lovato partied with pals at the Saddle Ranch in Hollywood, drinking vodka sodas before she took the party back to her Hollywood Hills home where she would soon overdose.
