Demi Lovato was admitted to hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday after taking a heroin overdose.
The police report to the TMZ entertainment site that the singer in her home in Hollywood was found unconscious and was treated with the drug naloxone, an antidote that can be used in an overdose of heroin or morphine.
Then she was taken to the hospital. The 25-year-old singer is now again conscious and approachable. “Demi is awake and with her family, who wants to thank everyone for the love and support she received,” said a Lovato spokesman.
According to acquaintances of Lovato, she would have celebrated a birthday at a friend’s home in Hollywood on Monday night, where she posted pictures on her private Instagram that is not public.
On Sunday Lovato was seen with rapper Iggy Azalea at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. Also this week there was a performance of her planned, but that is now deleted.
Lovato has previously been addicted to alcohol and drugs and announced in March this year that he would be sober for six years. In June, however, she released the song Sober , in which she had a relapse by twilight.
The singer revealed earlier in a documentary that she was still on drugs in 2012, while promoting a “sober lifestyle”.
In Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated she said: “I was not working on my program, I was not ready to be sober, I smuggled cocaine aircraft and used secretly in bathrooms.”
Several well-known colleagues of the singer have desired Lovato strength, among whom Ariana Grande. “I love you”, writes the singer on Twitter.
Also talk show presenter Ellen DeGeneres expresses her sympathy. “It breaks my heart that she has to experience this.”
