Demi Lovato was admitted to an LA hospital today after being found unconscious inside her Hollywood Hills home. It's currently being reported that the singer was suffering from a heroin overdose. She is now reported stable and awake.
She was apparently treated with Narcan before being sent to the hospital. Narcan is a treatment commonly used for overdoses involving narcotics.
While it's not new information that Lovato has a history of substance abuse and addiction struggles, the overdose does come only one month after the singer revealed she had broken her six-year sobriety.
Lovato released her song "Sober" in June of this year lyrics revealed that she had relapsed recently. The song lyrics go, "We've been down this road before. I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore."
The singer was performing as recently as Sunday, where she put on quite the show for those at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. Lovato performed alongside friend and fellow musician Iggy Azalea, who had publicly supported the singer after her relapse.

Now videos posted online have revealed that Demi missed some lyrics while belting out "Sober" on Sunday, which fans seem to believe has a bigger meaning than just forgetting them.
The last verse in the song is four lines and Demi missed the first two of them, which are "I'm sorry that I'm here again, I promise I'll get help."
People are worried about what this means for the singer, whether it has a greater meaning or wondering if she just simply forgot the lyrics.
i saw someone tweet about demi messing up the “i promise i’ll get help” line in sober recently and how it may not have been an accident. it breaks my heart demi has always been so open that maybe she couldn’t sing the words and feel like they’re a lie 💔 https://t.co/GXclBFvvzG— 🦋 (@mxtherluvmyself) July 24, 2018
I recognized this before...but I thought I was just overreacting. But I wasn't...😭— Michelle🌹 (@xbrokenwarriorx) July 24, 2018

She forgot extremely many song lyrics— paula (@inteamtay) July 24, 2018
While we don't have enough information to confirm for sure, it is possible that Lovato's mind was elsewhere during this time given the circumstances.
We just hope that the singer will be getting all the help that she needs during this tough time.
