Demi Lovato is “awake and with her family” after being hospitalized in Los Angeles following an apparent overdose, the singer’s rep said Tuesday.

“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” a spokesperson for Lovato said in a statement to TheWrap. “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.”

TMZ first reported the news of Lovato’s overdose, saying that the pop star was treated with Narcan — an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses — after a heroin overdose at her home in the Hollywood Hills. However, an individual familiar with the situation later told TheWrap that heroin was not the cause.

Lovato is currently being treated at a local hospital.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap that LAPD responded to a medical emergency Tuesday morning at the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills — which is the area where Lovato resides. An official at the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to TheWrap the incident involved a 25-year-old woman.

Last month, the 25-year-old singer revealed via her new track “Sober” that she had relapsed after fighting substance abuse for years. She previously lived in a sober living home after leaving rehab and had been sober from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin addiction for six years.

Lovato’s most recent performance was with Iggy Azalea at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, California, on Sunday. According to TMZ, Lovato was scheduled to leave this week for an upcoming show in Atlantic City.

A representative for Lovato did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
