Demi Lovato is reportedly in the hospital due to a possible overdose, TMZ is reporting. The singer was allegedly rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles earlier today, per a law enforcement source. Her current condition is unknown.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that they responded to a call at 11:39 a.m. to a home on the 8000 block of Laure View Drive in Hollywood. They declined to name an individual and they did not name a specific substance, but TMZ originally reported it was heroin.
Demi has suffered with substance abuse for years. She had been sober for six years, and she told an audience in Brooklyn earlier this year that she was ‘drinking vodka out of a Sprite bottle at nine in the morning, throwing up in the car and I just remember thinking, “This is no longer cute. This is no longer fun. And I’m just like my dad.” So I made changes in my life.’
But in June, she had confirmed a relapse through her song Sober, where she sang to her mother that she was sorry for not being sober anymore.
‘Momma 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.’
‘I’m sorry for the fans I lost, who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.’ Though, she does reassure both her fans and herself that she will seek help: ‘I’m sorry that I’m here again / I promise I’ll get help / It wasn’t my intention / I’m sorry to myself.’
