Singer Demi Lovato has been hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose and is said to be stable, according to several reports.
TMZ first broke the story on Tuesday, reporting the 25-year-old had been rushed to the hospital after allegedly overdosing on heroin. Reports say Lovato was not conscious when she was found and was treated with medication used for narcotic overdoses.
“Demi is awake and with her family, who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support,” said the statement from Lovato’s representative. “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.”
A source told People Magazine that Lovato is doing okay and stable following her hospitalization. The news of her apparent overdose comes just a few weeks after Lovato revealed she had relapsed in her song “Sober”.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore. And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sang.
Lovato had a documentary on YouTube where she came clean about her drug use, saying she was high on cocaine and started using at the age of 17.
“I felt out of control the first time I did it,” she said. “My dad was an addict and an alcoholic. Guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him and he chose that over a family.”
