Demi Lovato awake after being admitted to hospital for suspected overdose
Singer Demi Lovato is “awake and with her family” after being taken to hospital after a suspected overdose, according to reports.
Los Angeles Police told The Hollywood Reporter that officers responded to a home on Laurel View Drive, on which Lovato reportedly has a home, on Tuesday morning for a possible overdose victim.
“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” her representatives said Tuesday in a statement.
“Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
TMZ claims the singer overdosed on heroin, but an anonymous source told People it wasn’t.
People also reports the 25-year-old singer is in stable condition.

The news came about a month after Lovato released a song called Sober, in which she alludes to relapsing from sobriety.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore, And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” the song lyrics state. “To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
The 25-year-old has been treated for bipolar disorder, substance abuse and bulimia, Variety reports. She has been struggling with substance abuse since 2010.
Earlier on Tuesday, Lovato’s Twitter account posted a video clip promoting a special guest appearance by the star airing on Tuesday night’s “Beat Shazam.”
LiveNation confirmed that Lovato would not be performing a show originally scheduled Thursday in Atlantic City.
She was also scheduled to perform at Echo Beach at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on Sunday, July 29 with Jason Mraz.
Following the troubling news, stars have taken to social media to pay tribute to the singer:
