Demi Lovato Isn’t “Sober” Anymore After Overdose Heroine

Demi-Lovato

Singer Demi Lovato is awake and with her family after being hospitalized earlier Tuesday, according to a statement from the singer’s representative.

A source close to Lovato’s family said that the singer’s hospitalization was the result of an apparent drug overdose.

“Demi is awake and with her family, who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” said the statement from Lovato’s representative. “Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”

The Los Angeles Fire Department received a call at 11:22 a.m. for a medical emergency and transported a 25-year-old woman to a hospital.

A senior law enforcement confirmed that Lovato is at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She is stable, conscious and breathing, thankfully.

Lovato was not partying alone before she was found unresponsive in her Los Angeles home and her family and friends had feared she was hanging out with people who were encouraging her drug habit. The source also said Lovato was dating someone her family wanted her to stay away from.

Lovato’s family is now focused on providing a clean, safe place for the singer to heal. Lovato’s friends reportedly used the medication Naloxone, sometimes referred to as Narcan, which can reverse the effects of opioid overdoses to treat the 25-year-old after she was found unresponsive at her home Tuesday morning.

“I think it was very wise for her friends, or family, or whoever it was to have Narcan on hand. They probably saved her life,” addiction psychiatrist Dr. Laurence Westreich said to CBS.

However, on Wednesday afternoon, a source close to Lovato denied reports she had been treated for an overdose of heroin.

Demi Lovato’s famous friends are rallying around the singer in light of news about her hospitalization.

“i love u @ddlovato,” singer Ariana Grande wrote on Twitter.

Singer Missy Elliott wrote, “You just never know what people are going through so please have compassion & no jokes,” she said. “But let’s be encouraging so she will get the help she needs.”

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

“So sorry to hear about Demi Lovato being hospitalized. Sending love and healing prayers to her,” talk show host Wendy Williams wrote.

Singer Lily Allen called Lovato a “beautiful spirit” and expressed hope that Lovato “makes a full recovery soon.”

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres added: “I love @DDLovato so much. It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family.”

Lovato has been open in the past about her struggles with addiction.

In March, she celebrated six years of sobriety, but admitted in June that she’d suffered a relapse.

“My whole heart and my whole soul is with @ddlovato today. I adore you and so does the entire world,” actress Ruby Rose wrote. “You will fight this and you will come out of it even stronger. Addiction is powerful beyond measure, but you can defeat it.”

“I love you @ddlovato and I’m praying for your strength and health,” Emmy Rossum added.

Tyra Banks added, “Addiction is not a choice. My heavy heart sends healing love to @ddlovato, and I pray she recovers fully and with great health.”

Lovato’s fans also came together in light of her hospitalization, using #PrayForDemi and #StayStrongDemi. The terms sat at the top of Twitter’s list of trending topics in the hours following the news.

Lovato’s hospitalization comes just weeks after the singer, who has struggled with substance abuse, revealed she had recently suffered a relapse.

The pop star made the revelation about the setback in a single, “Sober,” released late last month.

Lovato, who turns 26 next month, said in March that she was celebrating six years of sobriety.

The singer has spoken candidly in interviews about her use of cocaine and addiction to alcohol, as well as mental health issues and an eating disorder.

“Sober” did not reveal the nature of Lovato’s relapse.

“I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again,” Lovato sings in “Sober.” “I want to be a role model but I’m only human.”

The lyrics also include Lovato singing, “I’m sorry that I’m here again. I promise I’ll get help.”

Lovato was supposed to appear on the Tuesday night episode of the Fox game show “Beat Shazam,” which is hosted by Jamie Foxx, but a network spokesperson said the show would air a different episode in its place “in light of recent reports.”

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

Lovato was next scheduled to perform on Thursday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but her appearance has been canceled, unfortunately.

Lovato got her start in entertainment at age ten as a regular on the children’s series “Barney & Friends.”

That led to guest roles on TV shows like “Prison Break” and “Just Jordan,” followed by Disney Channel’s “As the Bell Rings.”

Lovato’s role as aspiring singer Mitchie Torres in the Disney TV movie “Camp Rock” introduced the world to her musical talent. Her debut album, the pop-rock “Don’t Forget,” released in 2008.

As a regular on the Disney series “Sonny with a Chance,” and Lovato became one of the network’s brightest young stars.

Her second album, “Here We Go Again,” released in 2009.

After three seasons on “Sonny with a Chance,” Lovato announced she was leaving the show to focus on recording and her third album, “Unbroken.”

She later had a recurring role on the Fox series “Glee” and served as a judge on the reality singing competition “The X-Factor” for two seasons.

Lovato’s self-titled album, “Demi,” released in 2013. Her albums “Confident,” which earned her a Grammy nomination, and “Tell Me You Love Me” followed.

Her hits like “Skyscraper,” “This Is Me” (a duet with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas) and “Sorry Not Sorry” firmly established Lovato as a pop superstar.

Lovato’s most recent North American tour leg, which ran from February to April, grossed more than $20 million, according to tracking by Pollstar.

Citing production issues, Lovato postponed the South American portion of her tour in April.

She last performed July 22 at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, California.

Just two days earlier at a concert in California, Lovato had trouble remembering the lyrics to her recently released emotional ballad “Sober” and walked off stage.

In “Sober”, Lovato admitted she relapsed after six years of sobriety. She’s been in rehab twice before, the first time at age 18. Still, her overdose took fans and fellow artists, including Meghan Trainor, by surprise.

“I didn’t know it was that bad,” Trainor said.

Lovato’s family is going to do everything in their power to help get Lovato back on track and are making plans to get her straight into rehab.

We, The What’s Up Cairo Team, send our love and kind regards to Demi Lovato and we hope her a speedy recovery!

Princess Nourah bint Saad is now officially the first Saudi woman to head a sports club after successfully acquiring the Umbrian football club Spoleto.

During her speech at a press conference, the princess thanked her hosts for their hospitality and outlined her ambitious plans for the team’s future.

“Football is a family passion, and Italian football is followed all over the world. This is why I chose to invest in Umbria,” she said at a press conference.”

She further explained the aspects that made her choose this club in specific, “Spoleto is a small, amateur football organization where it is possible to work with the aim of growing and aiming for promotion,” the Princess added. “But we cannot fail to consider the value and beauty of the city of Spoleto, which is famous throughout the world.”

This purchase is the second venture for the Saudi royal into sports club ownership, as Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad co-owns English Premier League football club Sheffield United.

We are proud to witness Saudi women achieving such remarkable milestones, what with Yasmeen Al Miamani becoming the first female commercial pilot just last month, Aseel Al Hamad making history by becoming the first-ever Saudi female F1 driver and now this!

We are filled with pride and hope that this could encourage more women to taken on challenging jobs in various fields.

Mohamed Hadid Responds to The Controversy Surrounding his Daughter

Published

It has been over a week now since the incident of Bella Hadid broke all over the internet and the controversy doesn’t seem to slow down.

Especially after last week when Dior stores across the GCC started removing Hadid’s campaigns shots from any windows or displays and shopping malls across the region.

Bella Hadid posted an apology explaining her intention but was still faced with this reaction from the GCC. Her family was silent about the ordeal until her father Mohamed Hadid broke this silence.

 

In an exclusive interview with Arabian Business, Hadid said, “Bella has been targeted by jealous individuals and trolls who wish to destroy her career. Arabs don’t do that to their own. She is a proud Arab and a proud Muslim. There are many people with their own agendas, mostly out of jealousy for her success, that are trying to bring her down. 95 percent of the backlash on social media is coming from paid trolls – just open any of these accounts and most of them are fake.”

“Do you really think she was walking around the airport and trying to find those two exact airplanes right next to each other to take an intentional picture like that?” he continued. “She can’t even walk in the mall without thousands of fans following her around. She was tired, waiting for her flight in the airline lounge and just took a picture. No one in our family would ever disrespect any Arab country, not Saudi Arabia, not the UAE and not anyone from the GCC.”

We hope things would calm down soon for Bella Hadid and we’re still waiting for a response from officials of the GCC.
