Report: Demi Lovato ‘Heading Straight To Rehab’ From Hospital
Demi Lovato is reportedly “grateful to be alive” and will be “heading straight to rehab” after her hospital stay where she’s being treated for a drug overdose this week.
“She had been partying for 12 straight hours and it caught up with her,” a source told E! News Wednesday. “This was going on for a few weeks, and the warning signs were there.” (RELATED: Report: Demi Lovato Sees Drug Overdose As ‘Wakeup Call’ And Is ‘Willing To Do Everything It Takes’ to Get Back To Sobriety)
“She slipped up and thought she could handle it,” the source added. “This is obviously a huge wake-up call. Demi doesn’t want to die and she’s very grateful to be alive. She will be leaving the hospital and heading straight to rehab. Her family has been by her side, supporting her, and is getting her the help she needs.”
The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer had to be rushed to the hospital on Tuesday from her Hollywood Hills home after first responders found her unconscious from an overdose. Officials have yet to release information about the exact substance that caused the pop star’s overdose, but it has been reported that she was given Narcan at the scene — something that is administered to counter the effects of opioids.
On Tuesday, the singer’s rep released a statement that she was “awake and with her family.”
“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,” the statement read.
Last month, the singer broke down on stage while singing her latest hit, “Sober,” in which she shares how she recently suffered a relapse after struggling with sobriety for the last six years.
