ORIGINAL STORY: Singer-songwriter Demi Lovato has been rushed to hospital in Los Angeles, after suffering an apparent overdose.
PEOPLE reports that a source close to the singer says Lovato is now “stable”, after the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed authorities “responded to a medical emergency” in the area of Lovato’s Hollywood Hills home.
TMZ reports that audio of the emergency call suggests Lovato was found unconscious in her home and revived with Narcan — an emergency medication used to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose.
While TMZ reports the overdose is heroin-related, a source close to Lovato has told PEOPLE that it is not heroin-related.
“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” Lovato’s representative said in a statement to Variety.
The likes of Ariana Grande, Kesha and Lily Allen have already sent their love to Lovato on Twitter:

Lovato has suffered from substance abuse, disordered eating and mental illness in the past, and was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction after entering treatment in 2010.
In June 2017, Lovato released a new song called ‘Sober’ on which she revealed she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.
