Demi Lovato's 'Beat Shazam' episode pulled after hospitalization

- Demi Lovato has been rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering from an apparent heroin overdose, according to TMZ. The Confident singer was admitted for a reported heroin overdose, but thanks to quick thinking and Narcan, is apparently stable.

"Sober" does not reveal the nature of Lovato's relapse, but she sings, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again".

Lovato, who has some 69 million followers on Instagram, was in the midst of a US tour and was due to perform in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday.

Earlier, People Magazine reported that Lovato is now "stable".


Demi lives in the Hollywood Hills and it is believed that it was here that she overdosed on hard-drugs. She was due to play in Atlantic City on Thursday night (US Time), before taking a break until late September when she was due to being a two-month tour of Central and South America. In May, she tweeted that new music and lyrics would reveal the truth. In June, she released a song called "Sober" about a relapse after six years of sobriety.

"You have to lean into the people who are trying to support you", she said in the film.

Lovato said she also wanted to help others. LAPD responded to a medical emergency at Lovato's home around 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday (July 24) and found the 25-year-old unconscious. There is no word on her condition. She shared this hard news in her single, "Sober".

The hashtag #PrayForDemi trended on Twitter and several celebrities posted supportive words Tuesday, including Missy Elliott, Ariana Grande, Brad Paisley, Kesha, Bebe Rexha, Meghan Trainor, Maren Morris, Kehlani and British electronic group Clean Bandit, whose current single "Solo" features Lovato. Her albums "Confident", which earned her a Grammy nomination, and "Tell Me You Love Me" followed. In 2017, she was recognized as one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people for her advocacy on behalf of those with mental illness.
