BREAKING – Demi Lovato, who was hospitalized on Tuesday after overdosing on heroin, is now in a stable condition, revealed a source close to the 25-year-old singer.
The news was first broken by TMZ a few hours ago. It claimed that Lovato was rushed out of her home in Hollywood Hills to a nearby hospital just before Tuesday afternoon.
Representatives from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Fire Department confirmed the story. They said that they had responded to the medical emergency when someone from Lovato’s home called 911 to request an ambulance.
The audio clip from the emergency call acquired by TMZ disclosed that the Sorry Not Sorry singer was found unconscious in her house after overdosing on narcotics. On the way to the hospital paramedics attempted to revive her with Narcan.
Soon after receiving first aid, Lovato’s family sent her to an undisclosed medical center. Sources have now revealed that she is now conscious and in a much more stable condition.
No longer clean
Lovato has been very open about her struggle with drug and alcohol addiction in the past. She is also very vocal on issues of mental illness, eating disorders and addiction. She entered rehabilitation in 2010 for self-harm, drug addiction, disordered eating and a bipolar disorder.
The treatment wasn’t very effective for the singer who quickly relapsed after leaving the rehab.
Now, a source close to Lovato says that she continued to fight against her demons even after receiving the treatment. Before her recent relapse, she had been struggling with depression and anxiety which eventually led her down the dangerous path of addiction once again.
Demi Lovato also admitted in her latest album ‘Sober’ that she was no longer clean. In one heartfelt song, she apologizes to her family and her fans for letting them down once again.
