Demi Lovato Reportedly “Stable” After Hospitalisation For Alleged Overdose

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.

A representative for the Los Angeles Fire Department revealed to the publication that they “transported a 25-year-old female patient to a local hospital,” while the Los Angeles Police Department confirms both departments “responded to a medical emergency” in the area of the singer’s Hollywood Hills home.

TMZ obtained audio of the emergency call which reveals Lovato was unconscious upon their arrival and revived with Narcan — an emergency medication to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose.

However, while TMZ reports the overdose is heroin related, a source close to Lovato claims that it is not, via PEOPLE.

Following the heartbreaking news, friends and fans of the celebrity have taken to social media to send their love with an outpouring of tweets.

The report comes a month after the release of her new song ‘Sober’, which details her recent relapse after six years of sobriety from painkiller OxyContin, alcohol, and cocaine.

Lovato spent three months in rehab in 2010, where she sought treatment for bipolar disorder and bulimia.

In 2013, Lovato moved into a sober living house, where she lived for about a year.

In the time since, she has been open about her previous drug dependence.
