However, the US site has now said sources closely connected to the singer revealed Demi’s overdose was not because of heroin.

The Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker has also candidly admitted her struggles with cocaine abuse and self-harm in the past.

On June 21, 2018, the singer released her new single Sober, whose poignant lyrics appear to suggest she had recently broken her six years of sobriety following her battles with addiction.

Why was she hospitalised?

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman has confirmed that the force was called to an address in Hollywood at around 11 am local time on Tuesday.

Demi was reportedly treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment used in drug overdoses before being taken to a medical centre in Los Angeles, where she is now in a stable condition.

A spokesman for the star said: “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.”

What’s she said about drug and alcohol addiction?

Demi has had well-publicised battles with addiction and has bravely spoken out about her struggles with substance abuse for many years.

The star emotionally celebrated her six-year milestone during a concert in March.

In a poignant 2017 documentary, she told how she used to smuggle cocaine onto planes and nearly died from an overdose of prescription pills.

After seeking help back in 2010 for alcohol and drugs dependency, the star relapsed two years later.

She said: “I wasn’t working on my programme, I wasn’t ready to get sober. I was sneaking [cocaine] on planes. I was sneaking it in bathrooms, sneaking it throughout the night.

“I went on a bender of like, two months where I was using daily.”
