Though law enforcement sources told TMZ Demi's OD was an apparent heroin overdose, a source close to Demi later told TMZ that it was not heroin.

Last month, Demi revealed she had broken six years of sobriety in "Sober," an emotional song in which she apologised to her parents, fans and prospective lovers, among others.

"Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore / And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor", she sings.

Demi Lovato collaborator Cheat Codes is stepping up to take over the headlining spot for the singer's scheduled concert in Atlantic City, N.J., Thursday night, Live Nation and AC Beach Concerts announced Wednesday. "We have made a decision to replace the episode of Beat Shazam with another all-new episode". Their occupants did not stop to speak to reporters.

After news of Lovato's hospitalization broke, Ariana Grande was one of the first to offer her public support, writing on social media, "i love you @demilovato".

USA chat show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted: "I love @DDLovato so much".

"We are deeply saddened to hear the news about our friend Demi Lovato, who has inspired so many of us throughout her journey We send her our love and support as she finds the strength to recover", the company said in a statement.

Lovato was a child star and found fame on the TV series Barney & Friends before appearing in the Disney Channel film Camp Rock. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.

She previously suffered a substance abuse disorder with alcohol, cocaine and prescription Oxycontin, the outlet reported, but had been clean for several years until very recently.

The 25-year-old is in hospital in Los Angeles after a suspected drug overdose. The news was met with shock and sadness from friends and fans.

A representative for the Los Angeles Fire Department added that they "transported a 25-year-old female patient to a local hospital". "I like the freedom of being able to flirt with whoever I want".

Her current condition is unknown.

The "Cool For the Summer" hitmaker is said to have refused to tell paramedics what caused her to overdose, and no drugs were seized at her home. "I wouldn't be here without them". Along with a picture of Selena and Demi at Selena's Sweet 16 party, Mandy wrote, "The world is a better place because of these infectious smiles".

She once said: "I loved it". I do what I can physically in the gym.

Lovato grew up in North Texas and her mother is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from Irving.

"The party life that had once given me so much confidence and comfort had turned into a nightmare where I never felt more alone".
