Demi Lovato hospitalized for drug overdose

Demi Lovato hospitalized for drug overdose

TMZ claims the singer overdosed on heroin, but an anonymous source told People it wasn't heroin.

Unfortunately, the news of no longer being sober has taken a turn for the worst since reports from TMZ say the 25-year-old singer was rushed to the hospital today after suffering what appears to be a heroin overdose. She is now being treated and is in stable condition.

Demi has been battling addictions for several years, and recently opened up about relapsing in her song "Sober".

She's since used the experience to help others by purchasing the same facility where she received treatment, as well as offering free group therapy before her recent round of concerts.

Lovato is one of the world's biggest selling artists and has had chart-topping hits such as Give Your Heart a Break, Cool for the Summer, Heart Attack, and Sorry Not Sorry.

"Praying for her right now", he tweeted.

Late previous year, Ms Lovato released a second documentary about her career and life. "Wake me when the shakes are gone and the cold sweats disappear / Call me when it's over and myself has reappeared".

She was set to play a show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday, after just performing in Paso Robles, California, on Sunday. During what she describes as a two-month "bender" after a stint in rehab, she mixed cocaine and Xanax.

Lovato, who began her acting career on the popular children's series "Barney & Friends", rose to fame on the Disney Channel.

Country singer Brad Paisley tweeted, "Addiction is a bad disease". Fans hadn't seen much of the pair together for some time, but after Joe announced his engagement to Sophie Turner in October 2017, Demi was one of the first to congratulate him. Sometimes I'm not flawless with my recovery and my eating issues, but I keep fighting.

It was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Demi had been rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious in her Hollywood home.
