Lovato, whose acting career has also included a recurring role on "Glee", has in recent years appeared to be on the mend with a new stable and assertive public image.

Singer Demi Lovato has been hospitalized after suffering an apparent drug overdose, a source close to her family tells CNN.

A representative for Lovato did not immediately return a request for comment.

"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support", Lovato's rep said in a statement to Variety. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy.

TMZ reports that Demi Lovato didn't overdose on heroin.

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has always been vocal about her struggles with drug addiction, and last month revealed via song that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety.

Exact details on her medical emergency have not been revealed.

Last month she released a song called "Sober" where she revealed she had fallen off the wagon. In 2010, she entered treatment, where she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction.

Demi had been struggling with substance abuse, having lived in a sober living home at one point.

Last week, she performed as part of Amazon's Post-Prime Day Celebration Concert on Friday in Seattle, Washington. On the song "Sober", she sings the lyrics: "Momma, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor".

Less than 24 hours before the emergency, she posted a selfie on Instagram. "It will never be forgotten".

Many other stars felt this way, telling the 25-year-old through their social media accounts that they were "rooting" for her.

"I love u [Demi Lovato]" Ariana Grande tweeted soon after the news broke.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres wrote on Twitter, "I love (Lovato) so much". It breaks my heart that she is going through this.

A representative for Lovato released a statement Tuesday evening, saying that she was awake and recovering with family.
