‘My lips were blue.’ The Bachelor’s Davey Lloyd was clinically dead for 1 minute.

Davey Lloyd is bravely sharing his story of addiction.

For decades now, Lloyd — a builder from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, known for his stint on Sam Frost’s season of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise — has been surrounded by drugs and alcohol.

“Drugs, especially cocaine, are so prominent in Sydney. I don’t think people realise how bad it is until they take a step back and see the damage that’s being done,” he exclusively tells Mamamia.

Earlier this year, the 34-year-old’s cocaine addiction reached a breaking point when he overdosed. It briefly left him dead.

“This has been the hardest and ongoing struggle of my life. Recently I had my third seizure and to date, my biggest one — so intense that I died,” Lloyd shared on Instagram this week. 

“Thank god my friend was there to attempt CPR on me. At one point he actually gave up as it looked like I was not coming back to life.”

“I had been waiting to get into an Uber and I just dropped to the floor. I don’t remember a thing. My friend saw it all and said my lips were blue, my jaw was clenched and I was non-responsive,” he tells us. 

“My eyes were in the back of my head and my friend was screaming for help.”
