'X-Factor' star's health update released after possible overdose
Demi Lovato has been reported to be 'wide awake and talking' after being hospitalized following an overdose at her home in Hollywood Hills.
On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, emergency services were called to the site and found the 25-year-old singer unconscious. She was then revived with Narcan, a powerful medication to revert the effects of a narcotic overdose.
According to People, a representative for the star has revealed that she is recovering and that she is already awake and with her family, who asked for their privacy to be respected in these tough times.
Allegedly, they have also said that some of the information being spread online is reportedly 'incorrect.' While TMZ broke story claiming that Lovato's overdose was heroin-related, People says that an insider revealed that it was not.

The Blast seems to confirm the story; the news outlet wrote that people at the singer's home were 'uncooperative' with police officers and wouldn't reveal what kind of drugs she had used.
The same publication shared that the Los Angeles Police Department collected an 'item of evidence' related to illegal drugs that does not correspond to heroin usage.
For now, the proper authorities are investigating the case to find out what exactly happened on Tuesday and, according to E! News, Lovato's mother, Dianna De La Garza, and her 16-year-old sister, Madison De La Garza, have been spotted at the hospital.
The 25-year-old singer has been battling addiction for quite some time now, as well as mental illness and an eating disorder. Back in 2010, she started being treated for bipolarity, bulimia, self-harm and addiction, but ended up relapsing soon after leaving the center.
Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible. 🙏🏼— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) March 15, 2018
After that, she was admitted into a sober living facility for a whole year, but even that didn't help the artist, who kept struggling with her demons. Although she claimed to have been sober for six years, that wasn't the case.
In March, Lovato released Sober, a song in which she confessed that she had lied and that she had relapsed, telling her mother and father that she was sorry for what she had done and promising to get help.
