Singer Demi Lovato was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles hospital before midday on Tuesday after suffering an apparent overdose and is now “stable,” a source close to the situation told PEOPLE.
Now, a woman claiming to be the 25-year-old’s aunt Kerissa Webb Dunn has taken to social media to shed some light on the singer’s condition.
Webb Dunn shared a Facebook status alleging that her niece is “awake and responsive – Thank God,” before thanking fans for their “prayers” and asking them to “continue praying for her full recovery both short and long term.”
The post is no longer visible on her Facebook page so it’s assumed that she either removed the status or set her account to private after the mass amounts of comments and instant messages that she no doubt would’ve received.
Meanwhile, a Twitter account has been created under her name where she tweeted to say that she joined to let fans know Demi’s okay.

As it is obviously a new account, she has not yet been verified and therefore it is unknown as to whether or not the woman really is Demi’s Aunt.
According to her FB page, she is the co-director at Demi Lovato Charity Boutique, a yet to be opened organisation that has not previously been mentioned by the singer but its display picture is an image of Webb Dunn alonside Demi’s mother and the cover art features promo from the artist’s 2013 single ‘Heart Attack’.
Her account also alleges that she’s from Texas which is where the singer heralds from.
