Singer Demi Lovato rushed to LA hospital for ‘heroin overdose’ – reports
Singer and actress Demi Lovato was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles, California, for an apparent heroin overdose, TMZ reported, citing unnamed law enforcement sources. Lovato has struggled with substance abuse in the past.
Lovato, the 25-year-old award-winning pop artist, was found at her Hollywood Hills home just before noon local time on Tuesday (2000 GMT) and rushed to a hospital suffering “what appears to be a heroin overdose,”TMZ said. People magazine cited an unidentified source, who said the singer was “okay and stable.”
She had spoken out publicly about her addiction to alcohol, cocaine and opioids. Last month, however, Lovato revealed she had relapsed after being clean for six years, in a song called ‘Sober.’
Lovato started her acting career at age 10 on a children’s show called ‘Barney and Friends.’ Her first solo album was ‘Don’t Forget’ in 2008. She had seven top-20 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Lovato has been involved in activism for feminist, LGBT, mental health and gun control causes.
She also made public her struggles with childhood bullying, bipolar and eating disorders, self-harm and addiction.
