TMZ reports singer Demi Lovato hospitalized for apparent heroin overdose

TMZ reports singer Demi Lovato hospitalized for apparent heroin overdose

However, there's confusion over whether the overdose was heroin related. E!News reported that in the hours after Demi Lovato's mother and sister were spotted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Forbes also named her one of the Top 30 Under 30 in 2016.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has always been vocal about her struggles with drug addiction, and last month revealed via song that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.

TMZ reports that the 25-year-old singer was rushed from her Hollywood Hills home to the hospital around noon local time, and her condition is unknown.

Selena Gomez's mom, Mandy Teefey, sweetly took to Instagram on July 24 to post a throwback pic and heartbreaking message about Demi Lovato after the singer was hospitalized for an alleged drug overdose.

A representative for Lovato says she is awake and recovering with her family. "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", the statement read.

When "Extra" caught up with Demi at an event in NYC in March 2017, she opened up about her sobriety. She shared the news in a single titled "Sober".

In addition, Demi Lovato's scheduled performance in Atlantic City this coming Thursday has been cancelled.

"Sober" does not reveal the nature of Lovato's relapse, but she sings, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again".

The candid ballad was Lovato's way of sharing her struggle with the world. She had been sober for six years from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin, according to TMZ.

Lovato, who was a child actress on the TV series "Barney & Friends", broke on the scene as a teen on the Disney Channel film "Camp Rock" and the network series "Sonny with a Chance". "But let's be encouraging so she will get the help she needs".

Speaking of her reasons behind creating the documentary, she previously told Billboard: "I wanted to share this experience with my fans".
