Demi Lovato ‘awake and responsive’ following drug overdose
American singer and song-writer, Demi Lavato on Tuesday July 24, 2018 was transported by an ambulance from her home in Hollywood Hills to an L.A hospital after suffering what appeared to be a heroin overdose. The paramedics found Demi unconscious when they arrived her home.
Demi who has been fighting substance abuse for years revealed at one point she lived in a sober living home after getting released from a treatment center. She had been 6 years sober from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin.
However, Demi is “awake and responsive” following her hospitalization on Tuesday for a drug overdose.
The singer’s rep later released a statement and an update on her condition, saying,
“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 and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
Lovato had released a new single titled Sober just a month ago. The lyrics in the song include:
“I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again,”
“I wanna be a role model but I’m only human.”
And it ends with the lines:
“I’m sorry that I’m here again, I promise I’ll get help/It wasn’t my intention, I’m sorry to myself.”
