"I don't know anything about her personally. Just good people around her, and a willingness to want to live a different way if that's what she wants to do," Today quoted Urban as saying.

"It's all up to her," added the Blue Ain't Your Color singer, who was married to actress Nicole Kidman on June 25, 2006.

Lovato was found unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home following a suspected overdose. The singer was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

It was reported that her friends had given her Narcan, a brand name for the drug Naloxone and is a medication used to block the effects of opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and morphine.

A source told US Weekly: "One of her friends had Narcan on hand in case something like this happened."

"Her friends knew this was coming because she’s been using so much again."

Luckily, Lovato, who has battled with cocaine addiction in the past, is currently awake and stable.

"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's representative told NBC.

It's still not clear what Drug she may have overdosed on, though TMZ originally reported it was heroin.

But insiders close to Lovato have since told The Blast that they're adamant the singer was not using heroin.
