Demi Lovato awake and with family after suspected heroin overdose

Sheri SchwartzJul 25, 2018

An earlier report from TMZ claimed paramedics told them it was, but a source close to Lovato has denied this to U.S. magazine People.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said paramedics received a call about a woman in need of medical attention at 11:22 a.m. Tuesday.

TMZ, which was first to report the news, said Lovato is now being treated at a local hospital.

"Sober" does not reveal the nature of Lovato's relapse, but she sings, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again".

The star has suffered from addiction for numerous years, and first entered a rehabilitation facility in 2010 after withdrawing from a concert tour with the Jonas Brothers. Although she said in March that she was six years sober, an insider for People says she wasn't completely "clean" during that time.

Singles like "Skyscraper", "This Is Me" (a duet with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas) and "Sorry Not Sorry" firmly established Lovato as a pop music star.

Lovato, who has some 69 million followers on Instagram, was in the midst of a USA tour and due to perform in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday. "I guess I always searched for what he found in drugs and alcohol because it fulfilled him, and he chose that over a family", she said. Lovato has been outspoken about her battles with bipolar disorder and substance abuse.

In a now-eerie scene, Demi also recalled the time she thought she was overdosing.

The song ends with a haunting final two lines in which she pledges to regain her sobriety. In the film, Lovato opened up about using cocaine for the majority of filming for her 2012 doc, Stay Strong. "There is no one more honest or fearless than this woman".

"Only love and support", Stoner wrote in a tweet tagging Lovato.

Lovato's show in Atlantic City, N.J., set to take place on Thursday at Atlantic City Beach, was scrapped following her hospitalization.

The moment was caught on camera during a performance at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles on Sunday and shared online.
