Demi Lovato's ex said to be 'completely devastated' by her overdose

Singer Demi Lovato is awake and with her family after being hospitalized earlier Tuesday, according to a statement from the singer's representative.

Initially, TMZ reported that Demi overdosed on heroin, but sources close to the situation told Peoplethat wasn't true. "Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy", the spokesman told the BBC.

Demi, a longtime LGBT advocate, revealed a year ago that she was open to dating women, saying: "That's how I've always felt".

While she completed inpatient treatment at Timberline Knolls, Demi admitted in her documentary that her treatment wasn't entirely successful, saying: 'I wasn't working my program.

After the news broke, members of the music community including Kehlani, Bruno Mars and Missy Elliott shared their support for Demi over social media.

It's somewhat unusual to see such an immediate outpouring of support made so public from famous friends for such a private matter.

Lovato's role as aspiring singer Mitchie Torres in the Disney TV movie "Camp Rock" introduced the world to her musical talent.

"I just said we love you, 'cause it's heartbreaking for her, but also her whole team and her family and everyone around her", the singer said of her reaction to Tuesday's news. And I think what we're seeing now in this outpouring is fans giving back to her when obviously she needs it.

- Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) July 24, 2018My friend @ddlovato is one of the kindest, most talented people I've ever met. Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease.

Lovato revealed she relapsed after being sober for six years in a new song last month titled "Sober".

It's also said that Demi went through 20 different "sober companions" as she'd sneak drugs under their watch and became volatile.

A rep for the star told the publication that the 25-year-old is "awake and with her family".

"It breaks my heart that she is going through this", wrote Ellen DeGeneres. "We've known Demi for so many years. She hates that Demi has been suffering".

"Like all of you, I am thinking of Demi Lovato right now". In it, she said she began using cocaine at 17 to cope with childhood traumas. And may you receive the love so many have for you.

"I am knocked down over Demi, and I pray that she recovers quickly and finds sobriety again". "Every day is a battle", she said.
