Demi Lovato heroin overdose: Celebrities take to social media to offer support
Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Lilly Allen, Brad Paisley, Kehlani, Emmy Rossum and several others have been sending their love and support to Demi
Prayers and well wishes are pouring in for Demi Lovato after news surfaced of her being rushed to the hospital following a heroin overdose on Tuesday just weeks after she spoken about her relapse. The 25-year-old 'Sober' singer was taken to a hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday around noon from her home in the Hollywood Hills, TMZ reported. is According to a source close to the singer, she is now “stable.”
Just last month, Demi had released a new track which speaks of her relapse from about six years of sobriety. The track consists of lyrics like 'Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore / And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor,' and 'To the ones who never left me / We've been down this road before / I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore.'
While it clearly alluded to her relapse, what confirmed it was her breaking down in the middle of performing the same track for the first time in front of her fans, and later she had addressed the issue on her social media too.
The news of her relapse had surfaced back in April when she was photographed at singer Hayley Kiyoko's album launch party, holding a yellow tinted liquid. Critics came at her too hard for that but she had shut them down right away, saying, "I don't have to defend anything but it was red bull."
Demi has been quite open and vocal about her battle with mental illnesses and her addiction including her rehab stint back in 2010. Over the years, she grew up to be quite the role model and poster child for survival to many, which is showing abundantly, now that she's going through such trying times.
Various celebrities took to social media to show their support for the singer. Here's what they had to say:
