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

This article discusses substance abuse and self harm. The news was followed by the cancellation of tonight's episode of the Fox game show "Beat Shazam", which featured an appearance by Lovato.

Last year, Demi released documentary, Simply Complicated, based on her eating disorder recovery and her ongoing struggle, again to help raise awareness to others.

TMZ obtained the audio of the emergency call which reveals Lovato was unconscious upon their arrival and revived with Narcan - an emergency medication to reverse the effects of a narcotic overdose. The singer had been sober for six years prior to her relapse, leading to the surprise release of "Sober", in which she apologizes for letting down herself, her family and her fans. And daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor", she sang "And I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again. "I want to be a role model but I'm only human".

Lovato's show in Atlantic City, N.J., set to take place on Thursday at Atlantic City Beach, was scrapped following her hospitalization.

On Sunday, Lovato performed at the California Mid-State Fair with Iggy Azalea.

Many are keeping Demi Lovato close to their hearts. "Our thoughts go out to Demi and her family". One person wrote on Instagram, "Demi, don't let the darkness bring you down. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family". Authorities would not confirm that the woman taken to the hospital was Lovato, though ET has confirmed through a source that the female patient is indeed Lovato.

Lovato first experimented with cocaine in high school, despite fear that she'd get hurt.

Singer Lily Allen called Lovato a "beautiful spirit" and expressed hope that Lovato "makes a full recovery soon". "It's basically like a therapy session before the concerts and we have speakers from all over, and we're also helping out with different charities from around the country, so it'll be incredible and a very moving and inspiring experience", Demi told Good Morning America in January. #ImConfidentInDemi Demi, I love you. "Addiction is powerful beyond measure, but you can defeat it".

"They were up all night partying the night before at her house", the source told the outlet. And may you receive the love so many have for you. The terms sat at the top of Twitter's list of trending topics in the hours following the news.
