Demi Lovato is reportedly “awake and responsive” after paramedics found her unconscious at her Hollywood home last night.
The 25-year-old was reportedly revived with Naloxone, an anti-overdose medicine, after she suffered a suspected heroin overdose.
According to reports, the singer is now “alert and breathing” and is being treated at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” a spokesperson told the BBC.
“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.”
Demi Lovato has openly struggled with bi-polar disorder, bulimia and substance abuse. Following six years of sobriety, which she celebrated in March this year, the Sorry Not Sorry singer was reportedly feared to have relapsed in recent months – even cancelling her concert at London’s o2 Arena shortly before it was due to start.
Demi has once again been open with her fans about her struggles with addiction. In a single released last month, entitled Sober, she sings:
“Mommy, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore.
“And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor.”
The song ends with the lines:
“I’m sorry that I’m here again, I promise I’ll get help/It wasn’t my intention, I’m sorry to myself.”
She previously opened up to her fans during a concert…
“The reason why I became so open about my story is because I know that there are people here tonight that need to ask for help and I want them to know that it’s OK,” she reportedly said at the time.
“Mental health is something that we all need to talk about and we need to take the stigma away from it. So let’s raise the awareness. Let’s let everybody know it’s OK to have a mental illness and addiction problem. I’m bipolar, whatever. I take care of myself.
“I can never say thank you enough to you guys for the support that you’ve given me over the years. And you’ve forgiven me for my mistakes. So thank you for being a part of saving my life. I love you guys.”
We hope that Demi Lovato rests up and feels better soon. And of course, we hope that she can get the help she needs.
We love you, Demi Lovato!
