After an alleged overdose on heroin, Demi Lovato is awake and surrounded by her family after she was reportedly taken to hospital in Los Angeles.
American celebrity gossip website TMZ reported on Tuesday that police were called to the Hollywood home of the American singer, 25, after she suffered a suspected overdose.
In a statement, a representative for the star said: “Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support.
“Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
Lovato has been open about her struggles with alcohol and substance abuse and in June released a song, titled Sober, in which she indicated she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.
After reports emerged that New Mexico-born Lovato had been taken to hospital, the hashtag #PrayForDemi started trending on Twitter and celebrities including Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Nick Jonas tweeted messages of support.
Sending love and prayers to Demi Lovato 🙏
