A representative for Demi Lovato says the singer is awake and with her family after she reportedly was hospitalized for an overdose in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
A statement released Tuesday evening thanks the singer's fans for their support and calls for them to respect the 25-year-old's privacy. It says Lovato's "health and recovery" is the most important thing at the moment.
The statement came hours after paramedics were dispatched to Lovato's Hollywood Hills home and she was apparently transported to a local hospital. Fire and police officials said they could not confirm it was Lovato who was treated.
Multiple outlets, including TMZ and People, reported the singer had overdosed.
The statement by Lovato's representative said some of the information reported about the singer's hospitalization was not accurate, but did not provide additional details.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap that LAPD responded to a medical emergency on Tuesday at the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills — which is the area where Lovato resides. An official at the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to TheWrap the incident involved a 25-year-old woman and they received the call to respond 11:22 a.m. The individual is currently in unknown condition.
TMZ first reported the news of Lovato’s overdose, saying that the pop star was treated with Narcan — an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses — at her home in the Hollywood Hills.
Last month, the singer revealed via her new track “Sober” that she had fallen off the wagon after fighting substance abuse for years. She previously lived in a sober living home after leaving rehab and had been sober of alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin for six years.
Lovato’s most recent performance was with Iggy Azalea at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles on Sunday. According to TMZ, Lovato was schedule to leave this week for an upcoming show in Atlantic City, but insiders tell the outlet she’s been struggling.
