LOS ANGELES, July 24 (Reuters) - Pop star Demi Lovato was reportedly taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday due to a possible heroin overdose, celebrity website TMZ said.
Lovato, 25, who has spoken openly about cocaine and alcohol abuse in the past, released a song last month called “Sober,” saying she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.
Representatives for Lovato did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Los Angeles police said they had responded to a medical emergency call on Tuesday involving a woman on the Hollywood Hills street where Lovato reportedly has a home, but declined to name the person.
TMZ, quoting law enforcement sources, said Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital from her home with what they said appeared to be a heroin overdose. Her condition was not immediately known.
Lovato shot to fame on Disney Channel shows “Camp Rock” and “Sonny with a Chance” 10 years ago, and went on to forge a pop career with hits like “Skyscraper” and “Sorry Not Sorry.”
In her June song “Sober”, she sings “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
