Entertainment news website TMZ, quoting law enforcement sources, reported that Lovato was found unconscious at her home and was treated with Narcan, an emergency antidote for suspected opioid and drug overdoses.

Demi revealed in a documentary entitled Simply Complicated in October a year ago, that her substance abuse started at the age of 17 when she first took cocaine. Just last month, Lovato released a new song called "Sober", which includes lyrics indicating she was not sober anymore.

"We should all wrap our arms of love around Demi Lovato", tweeted Gaga.

In that documentary Lovato said that she tried cocaine at 17, right around the time she was shooting to fame on the Disney show Sonny With A Chance.

Lovato is one of the world's biggest selling artists and has had chart-topping hits such as Give Your Heart a Break, Cool for the Summer, Heart Attack, and Sorry Not Sorry.

A representative for Lovato did not immediately return a request for comment. "I'm touched", said Foxx, who also starred in her video for "Sorry Not Sorry". She has spoken out about her battles with drugs and alcohol over the years, and she's become a role model for young women and men who have faced their own issues.

Taking to their social media accounts, the Jonas siblings shared their love for star following her hospitalization on Tuesday.
