Demi Lovato's Rep Speaks Out, Heroin Reports Refuted

Demi Lovato‘s rep is speaking out following the singer’s hospitalization from an apparent overdose.

The 25-year-old singer was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday morning (July 24) after she was found unconscious at her home.

Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” the rep told Variety. “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.”

TMZ broke the news about Demi‘s hospitalization and reported that law enforcement sources believed the overdose to be from heroin. Now, the website says that was not accurate and sources close to the singer say heroin was not involved.

Read what celebrities are saying in their tweets of support.

    Heroin is a street drug, probably prefer the public think it was prescription drugs instead. Supposedly she is bi polar, that’s a tough road on it’s own besides adding a addiction to drugs.

    Hope she gets the help she needs, along with so many who are inflicted with drug addiction that’s at epic numbers in America.

    the first truth was probably just that, the truth. now its time to do damage control. unlikely to work.

    the opiod crisis has turned heroin into more than a street drug. heck, its a suburban drug now in some places bc people need something stronger once they build up a tolerance to opiod pills. its sad :-/

    She’s been out of control for months now. I’d even say it’s surprising it took so long for OD to happen.

    How are they explaining the Narcan shot she received by “friends” then? The sole fact that they had it “just in case” is mind blowing to me and completely sad! Demi has to clean house IF she wants to quit and read an healthy lifestyle. There’s no way the people around her aren’t enabling her with this toxic BS. Step 1 is ownership and realization that something ain’t right!

    I remember, back in 2010, when W. Goldberg was saying in her show that she could confirm that Miss Lovato was not in Rehab. It wasn’t for drugs she was getting treatment but something else. Blah! blah! blah!
    Years later we were told the truth. So…

    She targets kids, she lied about being sober and now she looks like a total hypocrite and a junkie. Of course it was “something else”.

    According to UsWeekly, the Narcan was kept on hand by one of the singer’s friends ‘in case something like this happened.’
