American singer, songwriter and actress, Demi Lovato has been hospitalised for heroin overdose.
The pop star was reportedly taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday due to a possible heroin overdose.
Demi Lovato, 25, who has spoken openly about cocaine and alcohol abuse in the past, released a song last month called “Sober,” saying she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.
According to Reuter, representatives for Lovato did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.
Los Angeles police said they had responded to a medical emergency call on Tuesday involving a woman on the Hollywood Hills street where Lovato reportedly has a home, but declined to name the person involved.
Celebrity website TMZ, quoting law enforcement sources, said Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital from her home with what they said appeared to be a heroin overdose. Her condition was not immediately known.
Lovato shot to fame on Disney Channel shows “Camp Rock” and “Sonny with a Chance” 10 years ago, and went on to forge a pop career with hits like “Skyscraper” and “Sorry Not Sorry.”
In her June song “Sober”, she sings “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
