Demi Lovato’s friends, fans, and peers took to social media to send their support to the singer after TMZ reported that she had been hospitalized due to a possible overdose on Tuesday, July 24. Lovato, 25, is now in stable condition, according to People magazine, but sentiments of love and well wishes continue to pour in from all over.
Kesha tweeted, “Love u @ddlovato thinking of you + your family + fans + friends. praying for you and thinking of you.”
“I love @ddlovato so much,” Ellen DeGeneres wrote. “It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family.”
Country singer Brad Paisley praised Lovato as “one of the kindest, most talented people” he’s ever met. “Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease,” he wrote. “There is no one more honest or brave than this woman.”
Fellow singer Lily Allen tweeted, “Poor beautiful spirit @ddlovato I hope she’s ok, and that she makes a full recovery soon.”
And Lili Reinhart wrote, “Praying for @ddlovato and her health. When I was 14, she was an idol to me in how she spoke so openly about mental health. And now she continues to inspire thousands of young men and women with her body positivity messages. Addiction and mental illness doesn’t discriminate.”
Paramedics reportedly responded to an emergency call at the 25-year-old’s home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon local time. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the singer was treated with Narcan before being taken to the hospital.
Lovato has been open about her struggles with addiction in the past. After entering treatment in 2011, she stayed in a sober living facility for more than a year. In March of this year, she celebrated six years of sobriety, but in June, she released a song called “Sober,” in which she sings about relapsing.
