Demi Lovato hospitalised after possible overdose, now 'awake'
Several Hollywood celebrities, including Lady Gaga, Joe Jonas and Ariana Grande, took to social media to support the singer
Demi Lovato was rushed to the hospital for a suspected drug overdose and the singer is now "awake", her representative has confirmed.
The news comes after the 25-year-old artist, who has struggled with substance abuse for years, revealed last month that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ, which was first to report the news, that Lovato, who was found unconscious, was treated with Narcan – a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose – at her home before being transported to a local hospital.
A representative for the singer said that she is now conscious and her family is by her side, who thank her fans and well-wishers for their prayers.
"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support," the spokesperson said in a statement to Variety.
Several Hollywood celebrities, such Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres and Ariana Grande, among others took to social media to support the singer after the possible overdose.
Lovato's former boyfriend, Joe Jonas also took to Twitter asking her to hang in there.
"Like all of you I am thinking of @DDLovato right now. She needs our prayers and support. We all know how strong you are Demi. #prayfordemi," he wrote.
Jonas's brother, Nick, tweeted: "Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi. All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well. She is a fighter. #prayfordemi."
