Fans And Friends Send Support To Demi Lovato After Reports Of A Drug Overdose

"She is a fighter."

Reports that Demi Lovato was hospitalized after an apparent drug overdose led to an outpouring of love and support for the singer from friends, fans, and fellow artists on Twitter Tuesday evening.

Last month, the 25-year-old revealed in a new song called "Sober" that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety. Lovato continued to perform for fans after the news, but her upcoming appearance in Atlantic City was canceled following the hospitalization.

"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support," Lovato's spokesperson shared in a statement to Variety. "Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now."

Fellow stars such as Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Lady Gaga, and Kesha sent their love to Lovato on Twitter following the news. "All of us love her and need to pray for her to get well," wrote Jonas, who toured with Lovato in 2016. "She is a fighter." He added the hashtag #prayfordemi. 

Many artists also encouraged others to show compassion for those struggling with addiction. "Addiction isn't simple nor easy," wrote Kehlani, who opened for Lovato on her most recent tour. "This isn't the time for picking apart or making light of."

Fans also showed their appreciation for the singer. Through the hashtag #HowDemiHasHelpedMe, Lovatics shared how the star's openness about addiction and mental illness positively affected their lives. "If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be here," one fan wrote.
