On Tuesday Pop singer and songwriter Demi Lovato had been reported to have overdosed on what is suspected to be heroin, by TMZ and other news outlets.  She is currently conscious and with her family at a hospital near Hollywood.

At 1140am Tuesday morning LAPD responded to a call in the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in Holywood Hills.  Sources have told the Los Angeles Times that firefighters treated Lovato with Narcan to reverse the effects of an overdose.

Demi has been quite open about struggles she has had with drug and alcohol abuse over the years.  She detailed her addictions in the 2017 documentary “Simply Complicated.”  And, in June of this year, the singer released a new single, entitled “Sober”, which details her relapse after six years of sobriety.
