Demi Lovato Hospitalized for Drug Overdose

  /  07.24.2018

Demi Lovato was rushed to an L.A. hospital after reportedly suffering a drug overdose.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that the 25-year-old singer was transported from her Hollywood Hills home to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center around noon on Tuesday (July 24), and is being treated. Her condition is currently unknown.

Lovato has battled substance abuse for years. In 2011, she entered a facility, where she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and addiction. She relapsed after she left the treatment center, then entered a sober living facility for a year. She celebrated six years of sobriety in March.

Lovato opened up about her road to recovery and sobriety in a 2017 YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated. Last month, she released her new song “Sober,” where she revealed that she had relapsed.

“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sings on the piano ballad. “And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.”

UPDATE: Lovato is reportedly stable, alert and breathing after an apparent drug overdose, according to NBC.

Paramedics found the singer unconscious when they arrived at her home and administered Narcan, an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses, reports TMZ. She was celebrating a friend’s birthday in West Hollywood on Monday night, and posted photos on her private Instagram, looking happy in the pics.
