Demi Lovato was hospitalized in Los Angeles for an apparent heroin overdose Tuesday around noon, according to a report by TMZ.
The 25-year-old singer was found unconcious and taken from her Hollywood Hills home to a nearby hospital, the outlet said. She was reportedly treated with Narcan before being transported, according to TMZ.
The singer and former Disney star has fought against substance abuse for many years, even living in a sober living house after one treatment stay. She had been sober for six years after abusing alcohol, cocaine, and Oxycontin.
Lovato also battled mental illness and disordered eating, having been treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, and self-harm in addition to the addiction, People reported.
“Sober,” a song Lovato released last month, talked about falling off the wagon after being sober for six years.
“Mama, I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sang in heartbreaking fashion. “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.”
Lovato had performed as recently as Sunday at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles with Iggy Azalea. She was scheduled to perform in Atlantic City this week.
Lovato’s Twitter account shared Tuesday morning that she would appear in a pre-recorded episode of Jamie Foxx’s “Beat Shazam” on Fox Tuesday night, PageSix reported.
Sources told TMZ Lovato has been struggling recently.
#PrayforDemi was trending on Twitter Tuesday afternoon and fans had already begun to tweet their support.
