Celebs July 25, 2018 By Hugo

Demi Lovato's family has confirmed the singer is "awake and with her family" following a suspected overdose.

The 25-year-old was rushed to hospital on Tuesday night having been found unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home. She was treated with an anti-overdose drug called Naloxone and is now in a stable condition according to a family representative.

Speaking to NBC News, the representative said, "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy,"

The pop star has fought a long battle with substance abuse and has been candid about her struggles in past interviews.

In a recent YouTube documentary, the star revealed her addiction to cocaine. "I was scared because my mom always told me that your heart could just burst if you do it,

"But I did it anyways, and I loved it the first time that I did it."

With her problems worsening in an industry where drugs almost go hand-in-hand, the star explored her dependency on drugs in the track "Sober."  "Mommy, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore," the lyrics read. "And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor."

"I'm sorry that I'm here again, I promise I'll get help. It wasn't my intention, I'm sorry to myself."

As a result of her hospitalization, Lovato's team has cancelled the final date of her 'Tell Me You Love Me' world tour that was set to conclude in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Since news of the overdose was made public, many celebrities have offered their support for the star.

Talk show host and Hollywood titan Ellen DeGeneres tweeted: "I love [Demi Lovato] so much. It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family."

Fellow singer/songwriter Brad Paisley was another to offer his support: "My friend [Demi Lovato] is one of the kindest, most talented people I've ever met. Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease. There is no one more honest or brave than this woman."

Since starting her career as a child actress on the Disney Channel, Lovato has enjoyed lucrative success as a solo artist, with six chart-topping albums to her name. 

Because of her candidness with addiction and mental health issues, TIME Magazine also included her among their most influential people because of her continued efforts to support those with ongoing addiction and mental health issues.
