Singer Demi Lovato hospitalized for apparent heroin overdose

The cause, however, is unclear.

Multiple outlets, including TMZ and People, reported the singer had overdosed.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed only that officers responded around 11:40 a.m.to a home in the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in Hollywood for a medical emergency.

The statement came hours after paramedics were dispatched to Lovato's Hollywood Hills home and she was apparently transported to a local hospital. Her condition is not known at this time. In a song released last month, titled "Sober", she sang about withdrawal and indicated she had relapsed, after celebrating six years of sobriety in March.

"And daddy please forgive me for the drinks I spilled on the floor".

The 25-year-old US-native reportedly took a heroin overdose.

The singer-actress struggled with an eating disorder, self-mutilation and other issues, entering rehab in 2010. However on Tuesday evening, Fox announced that the episode would be replaced with another new episode, stating: "Our thoughts go out to Demi and her family".

Lovato was scheduled to perform a concert on the beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday, but that performance has been canceled.

"I loved it. I felt out of control with the coke the first time I did it", she said.
