Demi Lovato 'awake,' with family at hospital after apparent drug overdose

A source told Entertainment Tonight Lovato was not partying alone before she was found unresponsive in her Los Angeles home and her family and friends had feared she was hanging out with people who were encouraging her drug habit.

However, the extent of her issues weren't fully understood until Demi - who has battled with cocaine addiction in the past - was rushed to hospital this week following a suspected overdose. Those details are still unclear.

"The more stressed out and more she was overworked, the more she wants to escape and do the drugs and not stay sober".

Lovato was scheduled to perform Sunday in Toronto at RBC Echo Beach but the show is cancelled. "Love you. Not only for your incredible voice, for your incredible music, but for what you stand for and everything you do".




The 25-year-old is now "awake and with her family" according to her publicist and plans on re-entering rehab once she is fit to do so. "I realize now it was insensitive, sorry!"

Demi's condition has been described as "stable", and last night her spokesperson confirmed via statement that she's awake and with her loved ones. The addiction specialist we spoke to says it's relatively common for people with a long period of sobriety to relapse, but with proper treatment there's every hope for long term recovery.

The pair were together for six years.

. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that "it breaks my heart that she is going through this".

Her relatives - who are currently at her bedside - are now desperate to get her back into rehab. On the song "Sober", she sings the lyrics: "Momma, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor".
