Singer Demi Lovato was reportedly rushed to hospital over what appeared to be a heroin overdose.
The Independent said the Los Angeles Police received a call out for the 25-year-old singer and actress. Elle said that Lovato is now “okay and stable,” according to a source. However, her exact condition remains unclear.
“One report suggested that Lovato was treated with Narcan, a prescription medicine used in the treatment of an opioid overdose, however, the LAPD declined to confirm,” said the Independent.
TMZ reported that paramedics found her unconscious when they arrived at her home in Hollywood Hills.
Lovato has always been open to her struggles on drug use. She went on rehab back in 2010 and, two year later, came up with a documentary where she shared the extent of her drug problem, said a report.
She has also revealed her struggles against drug abuse in her song titled, “Sober,” Elle said in its report.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sang on the heartbreaking piano ballad. “And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human,” a part of the song read.
“I just came to a breaking point; the next 12 months were extremely difficult,” Lovato said during the launch of her documentary titled, “Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated.”
In the documentary, she has also revealed much more about her sexuality and that she is on dating app Raya.
“There’s a certain stigma around women having casual sex and for me, I feel it’s my body, it’s my choice. It’s exciting. It’s a connection with somebody and it’s fun,” she said.
Lovato rose to fame when she starred in various children’s show such as in Disney’s Camp Rock (2008) and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (2010). She also released at least six studio albums, where seven of her songs earned a US Billboard Hot 100 entry.
