According to TMZ, Demi Lovato was rushed to an L.A. hospital earlier Tuesday afternoon after suffering what appears to be a heroin overdose. Her Aunt has since tweeted that Demi is “awake and responsive.”
Per the entertainment site, paramedics found Demi unconscious when they arrived at her home and law enforcement sources reported that the singer/actress was treated with Narcan, which is an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses.
Demi was out celebrating her friend’s birthday Monday night, July 23rd, and even posted photos to her private IG account of herself and her friends.
Demi has struggled in the past with addiction and had recently been sober for 6 years.
We send our prayers to Demi and her friends and family during this time.
