Pop singer Demi Lovato has been hospitalized for an apparent heroin overdose.
According to TMZ, law enforcement officials say the 25-year-old singer was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles after she suffered from what appeared to be a heroin overdose.
The entertainment outlet reports that Lovato, whose condition is not known, was transported on Tuesday just before 12 p.m. after being treated at her Hollywood Hills home with Narcan, an emergency medication for narcotic overdoses,Fox News reported.
According to TMZ, the OD occured at Lovato’s home.
A rep for Lovato did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
An LAPD spokesperson told Fox News that both the Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments responded to a “medical emergency call” on the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood at 11:40 a.m. However, the spokesperson noted that the “LAPD could not confirm the identity of the individual at the moment.”
Demi has fought substance abuse for years … at one point she lived in a sober living home after getting released from a treatment center. She had been 6 years sober from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin.
Last month she released a song called “Sober” where she revealed she had fallen off the wagon after celebrating six years of sobriety.
In her new song “Sober,” Lovato sings she’s not sober anymore and apologizes to the “ones who never left” her side and fans following her journey.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore/And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” Lovato sings in the chorus. “To the ones who never left me/We’ve been down this road before/I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
Heroin and opiates ruin lives.
She’s lucky she’s not lying in the morgue.
