Demi Lovato Hospitalised After Possible Heroin Overdose

A short while after TMZ reported that Demi Lovato had suffered an overdose and was hospitalized, a death hoax surfaced on social media.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter, who is now on the third leg of her Tell Me You Love Me world tour, was reportedly taken to a Los Angeles hospital after being found unconscious at her home on Tuesday, according to NBC.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department said they received a call at 11.22am for a "medical emergency" and took a 25-year-old woman from a property in Hollywood to a local hospital.

The former Disney Channel actress' struggles with addiction, bipolar disorder and other issues were recounted a year ago in a YouTube documentary titled "Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated". She sought treatment at a live-in facility in Lemont, Illinois, in 2010.

Lovato released "Sober" on Thursday.
