Pop musician Demi Lovato has been hospitalised after what appears to be a heroin overdose, TMZ reports.

The 25-year-old was reportedly rushed from her Los Angeles home to hospital just before midday on Tuesday.

Her condition is currently unknown.

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.

More to come.
