A spokesperson for Demi Lovato has said that the singer is “awake and with her family” after being hospitalised yesterday seemingly as the result of a drug overdose.

According to local media, emergency services in LA were called to Lavato’s home at 11.22am yesterday morning, with the singer being taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Various sources have said that a drug overdose was the cause of the emergency.

Responding to media reporting of the incident, a spokesperson said: “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 has been very upfront over the years about her struggles with addiction and bipolar disorder. In March she revealed that she was celebrating six years of sobriety, but the lyrics of her recent single ‘Sober’ suggested that she had recently suffered a relapse.
