Demi Lovato Hospitalized for Heroin Overdose

Demi Lovato Hospitalized for Heroin Overdose

Law enforcement officials reportedly told TMZ the singer, 25, is being treated for a heroin overdose.

People magazine quoted an anonymous source close to Lovato saying that the singer was in stable condition and that the overdose, while drug-related, was not from heroin, as initially reported by TMZ. Lovato found fame on Disney Channel's Camp Rock and Sonny With a Chance, and leveraged that into a successful pop star career. "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".

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer, 25, has struggled with substance abuse for years.

She has said: "I felt out of control with the coke the first time that I did it", adding, however, that she grew to "love it". Her debut album Don't Forget sold over 500,000 copies, while the follow-up Here We Go Again debuted at No 1 on the Billboard 200.

'Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi, ' Tweeted out Nick. "I want to be a role model but I'm only human".

"Six years ago, I was drinking vodka out of a Sprite bottle at 9 in the morning, throwing up in the vehicle", she told the audience.

Secret Trump-Cohen tape released, but what's on it in dispute
The parties had previously claimed the 12 recordings were "privileged" and couldn't be seen by the government. Rudy Giuliani told Fox News' Hannity that this payment was reimbursed and that President Trump knew about it.

In fact, she even released a touching song titled Sober through which she expressed how she felt like she'd disappointed her fans and loved ones by breaking her six years of sobriety. Mandy took to her Instagram page to share a sweet throwback pic of Demi and Selena laughing together during Selena's sweet sixteen birthday party and her emotional caption revealed how devastated she is about the tough situation.

Ellen DeGeneres likewise wrote, "I love [Demi Lovato] so much".

Messages of support from the singer's friends and contemporaries, like Kesha, Ariana Grande and Lily Allen, poured out on Tuesday afternoon.

That is when her management team informed her that if she did not get sober they would no longer keep her as a client.

Brad Paisley said he was praying for his "brave" and "honest" friend, calling addiction "a terrifying disease".
