So sad: Demi Lovato's ex Wilmer Valderrama, 38, is reportedly "completely devastated" over her apparent overdose on Tuesday.

As we reported on Tuesday, the Sorry Not Sorry singer has been hospitalized after suffering an alleged overdose at her Hollywood Hills home.

The Los Angeles Police Department told USA TODAY that at 11:37 a.m., authorities received a call from the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive.

Her rep tells ET Canada in a statement: "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. She detailed her struggles with addiction on her recently released single, "Sober", which included lines like: 'Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore/ And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor".

Commenting on her health issues in the documentary, she said: "I felt out of control the first time I did it". Although she said in March that she was six years sober, an insider for People says she wasn't completely "clean" during that time. "I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore".

Her next concert was slated to be at Atlantic City Beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday night.


'Her friends and him are just hoping that she gets better and that she can be great and thrive, ' the source added. In 2011, she entered a facility, where she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and addiction.

Throughout her career, Lovato has shared her bouts with alcohol and drugs.

Lovato taped her guest appearance on the show in December 2017.

Following the TMZ report, several celebrities, including many fellow musicians, tweeted their urgent well wishes.

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

Throughout the song, she apologizes to those who may be disappointed in her for slipping back into old habits. Online reported that Lovato was taken to the hospital under the suspicion that she had overdosed.
