People Magazine reports:
Pop star Demi Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday after suffering an apparent heroin overdose and is now “stable,” a source close to the singer tells PEOPLE.
A representative for the Los Angeles Fire Department tells PEOPLE they “transported a 25-year-old female patient to a local hospital,” while the Los Angeles Police Department confirms both departments “responded to a medical emergency” in the area of her Hollywood Hills home.
Audio of the emergency call obtained by TMZ reveals the pop star was unconscious upon their arrival and revived with Narcan — an emergency medication to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose.
