Demi Lovato’s Hospital Floor “On Lockdown” As She Recovers From Apparent Overdose

Cape Town - While the world reels from the shock of Demi Lovato's reported drug overdose, her ex-boyfriend actor Wilmer Valderrama (38) is said to be "completely devestated".

According to US Weekly, Demi was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after a reported drug overdose.

Now, her rep says, "Demi is awake and with her family", and RadarOnline.com reports the "Skyscraper" singer will enter rehab. "I thought she was sober, that's awful, right?"

A senior law enforcement official told CNN that Lovato is at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. But, it's reassuring to know she's conscious and has been able to wake up to all kinds of love and support.

Lovato's hospitalization on Tuesday comes just weeks after the singer, who has struggled with substance abuse, revealed she had recently suffered a relapse. There was no outlet for these pop stars to even sort of go against what was being said about them in gossip columns or in tabloids. We've seen her do it before and we'll see her do it again.

"I think everybody just wants her to be OK and there's no feeling that I can perceive of (people saying), 'How dare she?' or anything like that", Lipshutz said. I wasn't ready to get sober.

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

A spokesperson for Demi told the BBC: "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support".

New reports claim paramedics were called to her $8-million Hollywood Hills home after an all-night party.

"So, her friends probably didn't know what she took and to play it safe, they probably applied that, which is probably, really, the smart thing to do, not knowing what someone has taken", he speculates.

However, during the song, she appeared to forget the lyrics to the ballad.

As a regular on the Disney series "Sonny with a Chance", and Lovato became one of the network's brightest young stars.

"It breaks my heart that she is going through this".

"I wanted to be as thin as her", Lovato said in the film, released a year ago. Her albums "Confident", which earned her a Grammy nomination, and "Tell Me You Love Me" followed.

The singer, who started using drugs and alcohol when she was 17, sung: "Momma, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore / And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor".

Citing production issues, Lovato postponed the South American portion of her tour in April.

During Demi's final performance before she was hospitalised, she sang Sober at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles.
