Demi Lovato plays The Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., March 24.
UPDATE: Lovato’s July 26 performance at the Atlantic City Beach concert series has been canceled, along with the RBCxMusic benefit concert for Kids Help Phone in Toronto, headlined by Lovato and Jason Mraz scheduled for July 29.
“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” Lovato’s representative said in a statement Tuesday evening. “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.”
UPDATE: A source has reportedly told Variety that Demi Lovato is stable after a suspected overdose.
TMZ broke the story that singer Demi Lovato has been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital “after suffering what appears to be a heroin overdose.”
Law enforcement officials reportedly told TMZ the 25-year-old was transported from her home and is undergoing treatment.
Lovato has publicly fought substance abuse for years, and recently said she was six years sober, although in a new song called “Sober” she seemed to apologize for failing to stay clean.
In April she postponed a South American tour leg citing production issues, with those dates rescheduled to September.
Her February-April North American tour leg grossed more than $20 million on 20 submitted reports, with an average attendance of 12,448.
She just performed at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, Calif., July 22, with Iggy Azalea also on the bill.
Artists including Ariana Grande, Jason Isbell and Christina Perri tweeted in support of Lovato.
