After being hospitalized on Tuesday following an apparent drug overdose, Demi Lovato is now with family who plan to get her help ASAP.
“Demi is recovering and her loved ones are so incredibly thankful she has pulled through. They know how lucky she is to be alive and are relieved she’s getting another chance,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Her family is going to do everything in their power to help get Demi back on track and are making plans to get her straight into rehab. She is a fighter and has beat this in the past, so they know she can live a clean and sober life again. Her mother is by her side.”
Initial reports claimed that Demi overdosed on Heroin, however in a new statement, her official spokesperson claims this is an incorrect rumor.
“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 first entered rehab at the age of 18, completing her inpatient treatment for “emotional and physical issues” in January 2011. She later revealed in various interviews and in her documentary, Simply Complicated, that she struggled with bulimia and was self-medicating with drugs like cocaine and alcohol. Lovato celebrated six years of sobriety in March, but relapsed shortly after, seemingly addressing it in her latest song, “Sober,” which she released in June.
