Demi Lovato was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering from a heroin overdose, as per a report in TMZ. Demi was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday noon from her home in Hollywood Hills. She is currently being treated.
Law enforcement sources informed TMZ that Demi has been treated with Narcan — an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses at her home.
The 25-year old singer has fought substance abuse for years and had revealed last month that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety. In June, she released a track Sober which insinuated that she had relapsed.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilt on the floor. To the ones who never left me / We’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” were the song’s lyrics.
Demi has been open about her battle with addiction. She had also been vocal about her stint at a rehab in 2010. She had celebrated six years of sobriety at a concert in March.
The singer performed at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles with Iggy Azalea. She is scheduled to travel this week for a concert in Atlantic City. She is also scheduled to perform in Toronto on Sunday.
Her condition is not known yet but fans have been posting their wishes on social media for their favourite singer.
