Singer-songwriter Demi Lovato has been rushed to hospital in Los Angeles, after suffering an apparent overdose. TMZ reports that the 25-year-old pop star was found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home.
Lovato has fought substance abuse for years.
Furthermore, in her documentary released last fall, titled Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, the star talked about her drug addiction and how she eventually decided it was time to seek help, saying: "I just came to a breaking point; the next 12 months were extremely hard". In it, she sang, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again". In June 2018 she released a song, Sober, detailing how she had relapsed after the treatment.
Lovato called off two United Kingdom concerts back in June after suffering from swollen vocal cords.
Lovato has struggled with substance misuse problems for several years now and has spoken openly about her battles against it. She appeared in the short series "As the Bell Rings" and show "Sonny With a Chance", in addition the hit 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie "Camp Rock", co-starring with the Jonas Brothers. Thank God. If I know my monsters as well as I believe I do, we all wish you self-compassion and inner peace.
Messages of support from the singer's friends and contemporaries, like Kesha, Ariana Grande and Lily Allen, poured out on Tuesday afternoon.
The initial report stated that law enforcement officers involved with the case suggested that Demi overdosed on heroin, which is why other outlets were reporting this. "There is no one more honest or courageous than this woman". This source has also not identified which drug has caused Demi Lovato's overdose.
In addition, Demi Lovato's scheduled performance in Atlantic City this coming Thursday has been cancelled.
