California - Demi Lovato “Awake” in Hospital After Suspected Drug Overdose

Singer Demi Lovato is currently in “stable” condition after hospitalized on Tuesday in Los Angeles after a suspected heroin overdose.

The celebrity’s rep released a statement to media and said: “Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support.”

The rep was also quick to caution that “some of the information being reported is incorrect” regarding the celebrity and the circumstances surrounding her hospitalization. The singer's family asked for “privacy and not speculation” arguing that Lovato’s health and recovery is their top priority now.

Law enforcement officials said that the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a medical emergency at the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills where the singer is residing.

Entertainment site TMZ first broke the story and reported that the singer was found unconscious, and was treated with Narcan- a medication meant to quickly reverse opioid overdose. It also reported that Narcan was administered to the singer at her home before she was brought to a local hospital.

This is not the first time that the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer was in the news due to struggles with substance abuse. It has been going on for years. Substance abuse problems have been a recurring issue in the singer’s life and career for years.

Lovato was also candid enough to admit just last month that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.

The singer has also previously received treatment for bipolar disorder, bulimia, and substance abuse. She even chronicled her daily struggles with recovery in the 2017 YouTube original documentary “Simply Complicated.” In the said documentary movie, Lovato opened up about using cocaine while filming her 2012 doc, “Stay Strong.”

Some say her song “Sober” was a cry for help.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">You can hear how much this was a cry for help. I think as a society we forget that celebrities are human beings too, however they are CONSTANTLY in the spotlight so they often can’t express pain until its too late.

Lovato had just finished a concert in Paso Robles, California on Sunday.

Her show in Atlantic City, N.J. scheduled on Thursday at Atlantic City Beach, was canceled due to her hospitalization.

Celebrities, fans and social media users are sending their messages to Lovato online- some expressing support and understanding, while others are taking her to task for the reported overdose. There are also those who point out that people should give the same level of empathy and concern to regular, non-celebrity people who are also suffering the same struggles with addiction.
