Singer Demi Lovato was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a suspected drug overdose.
According to a TMZ media report, Lovato was taken to the hospital on Tuesday after a heroin overdose. On Monday night (July 23), she was celebrating a friend’s birthday in West Hollywood.
Quoting sources, the report said Lovato was transported by ambulance from her home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon on Tuesday and was currently being treated. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Lovato was treated with Narcan — an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses — at her home.
Demi has been vocal about her struggle with addiction and eating disorder. In 2011, she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia and addiction. In June 2018 she released a song Sober, how she had relapsed after the treatment. The lyrics of the song goes, “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore; And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled 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.”
Many Hollywood celebrities including Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Bruno Mars, Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas and others have sent in love and get well soon wishes to Lovato through their social media handle.
We should all wrap our arms of love around Demi Lovato. I am so happy you’re alive. Thank God. If I know my monsters as well as I believe I do, we all wish you self-compassion and inner peace. And may you receive the love so many have for you. #ImConfidentInDemi Demi, I love you.
