Demi Lovato 'in Los Angeles hospital for suspected overdose'
TMZ reports that, Singer Demi Lovato was rushed to an L.A. hospital after suffering what appears to be a heroin overdose, according to law enforcement.
TMZ sources say, Demi was transported by ambulance from a home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon Tuesday, and is currently being treated. Her condition is unknown.
The singer has fought substance abuse for years ... at one point she lived in a sober living home after getting released from a treatment center. She had been 6 years sober from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin.
Last month Demi released a song called "Sober" where she revealed she had fallen off the wagon.
She just performed on Sunday at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles with Iggy Azalea.
Demi was scheduled to go on the road this week for an upcoming show in Atlantic City, but TMZ sources say she's been struggling.

My view: Demi needs to live with her mother or a strict family member to look after her, just like Britany Spears father did after her public break-down. A vulnerable person like Demi can't just be with friends who can't control her. I don't get how her friends say it's not heroin overdose, so why was she treated with Narcan, then again the fact that the Narcan was at hand in the first place is telling. Why do some celebs do this to themselves? What is the point of taking drugs? and why can't her celeb friends tell her off, to stop her drug use. There are so many people with serious health problems in hospitals around the world fighting to live and you have a celebrity harming herself not cherishing the wonderful and rich life God has given her, especially her incredible voice, it's so sad.
