Around the World: Demi Lovato hospitalised for suspected heroin overdose

Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum singer, songwriter, actress, Demi Lovato, has been hospitalized on Tuesday in Los Angeles after a suspected heroin overdose.

According to law enforcement officials, the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a medical emergency at the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills, where Lovato’s home is located.

TMZ, which was first to report the news, said Lovato is currently being treated at a local hospital. Her condition is unknown.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Lovato was treated with Narcan, a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose, at her home before being transported to a hospital.

The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, 25, has struggled with substance abuse for years.

Lovato revealed in June that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.

“To the ones who never left me / We’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” Lovato says in her recent single “Sober” off of her sixth album, “Tell Me You Love Me.”
