Share

People reports that Lovato was treated with Narcan, used to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose, and she is now "okay and stable".

Lovato's hospitalization on Tuesday comes just weeks after the singer, who has struggled with substance abuse, revealed she had recently suffered a relapse.

The singer has fought substance abuse for years.

Lovato's aunt, Kerissa Dunn, posted on Facebook that her niece is "awake and responsive", as first reported by TMZ. She reached six years of sobriety but revealed that she relapsed in late June. Apparently, as you may be aware by now, Demi Lovato was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance and was in a scary condition.

"I knew at a young age that some of my behaviours were a problem", she said, but added: "I wasn't in a place where I could quit by myself". The revelation came forth in a new song titled "Sober" where Lovato bared her inner thoughts and asked her parents for forgiveness.

The organization reports Demi was taken from a home in the Hollywood Hills around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Lovato's Atlantic City concert planned for Thursday has been cancelled in the wake of her overdose.

Demi Lovato rose to fame with her Disney Channel movie, Camp Rock and went on to become a pop star with hit songs like Give Your Heart A Break and Cool For The Summer. "When I was 14, she was an idol to me in how she spoke so openly about mental health". She chronicled her daily struggles with recovery in the 2017 YouTube original documentary "Simply Complicated". It was an emotional reunion - I got one of my best friends back'.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres wrote on Twitter, "I love (Lovato) so much".

"I love u [Demi Lovato]" Ariana Grande tweeted soon after the news broke.

The singer was reportedly out celebrating a friend's birthday in West Hollywood the night before.
