Demi Lovato has reportedly been hospitalized due to a heroin overdose. On Tuesday, TMZ reported, the singer was rushed from a home in Hollywood Hills to a hospital in Los Angeles, where she is currently being treated.

According to TMZ, the news came from “law enforcement” and states that her condition is currently unknown. US Weekly also confirmed the news via LAPD officer Ray Brown, who told the publication that authorities “responded to a home in Hollywood at 11:37 a.m. local time.”

Lovato celebrated six years of sobriety this March. “So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible. ����,” she wrote on Twitter at the time.

Then, in June, she released a song called “Sober” which featured lyrics that many people interpreted as referring to a relapse. “Momma, I’m so sorry / I’m not sober anymore/ Daddy, please forgive me/ For the drinks spilled on the floor,” she sang in the song, adding “My truth” when posting the song on her Twitter.
