Fans pay tribute to Demi Lovato with #HowDemiHasHelpedMe

Fans pay tribute to Demi Lovato with #HowDemiHasHelpedMe

A new act has been added to Thursday's Atlantic City beach concert bill after pop star Demi Lovato was hospitalized after an apparent overdose yesterday.

In a statement to Variety, a representative for the star said: "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support".

It is unclear as of yet as to which elements of TMZ's initial reports were inaccurate. This is so different from what we've seen in cases where I'm thinking, for example, Britney Spears or Amy Winehouse struggled with similar problems and were not treated very sympathetically.

They confirmed a 25-year-old woman was taken to hospital but were unable to confirm her identity.

"She had to find creative and sneaky ways to get drugs because her team and those that really care about her really try to keep a close watch on her", the insider told the magazine.

While she completed inpatient treatment at Timberline Knolls, Demi admitted in her documentary that her treatment wasn't entirely successful, saying: 'I wasn't working my program. Demi's fans, whether she inspired them or they are hardcore Lovatics, are sharing the impact the singer has had on their lives.

A representative for the singer said Tuesday evening that Lovato was awake and recovering with her family. She needs our prayers and support.

Nancy Sinatra Sr., Frank Sinatra’s First Wife, Dies At 101
In this October 23, 1946 file photo, singer Frank Sinatra and his wife Nancy smile broadly as they leave a Hollywood night club. Nancy Sinatra Junior, Frank and Nancy Senior's daughter, tweeted on Friday that her mother died at 6:02 pm.


In a documentary released past year titled Simply Complicated, she opened up about using cocaine, saying: "I loved it..."

His brother and former Jonas Brothers co-star Nick Jonas, who also starred alongside Lovato in the films and toured with her, tweeted: "Like all of you I am reeling at the news about Demi". I am so happy you're alive. Back in June, the 25-year-old released a single called "Sober", where she disclosed her relapse. We all know how strong you are Demi.

"Her music always speaks to me and helps me to keep going", she tells Newsbeat. During a recent drug prevention event in 2017, when she was receiving a Spirit of Sobriety Award, she said that every day is a battle.

If you have addiction in your family, she said, then you're more likely to be affected by it.

"She helped me get better with my issues and with all my might I hope that she'll get better too".

Laura also explains how important it is for celebrities like Demi to be so open about their mental health.
