One new report is shockingly claiming that Demi Lovato was close to losing her life! Supposedly, her overdose was so serious that if she got to the hospital only a bit later, she could have died. Thankfully, the person who called 911 for her did it just in time for the medics to save her, TMZ reports.
The star is still in the hospital which is proof enough that she, indeed went through a huge crisis.
After a night of partying with some pals, Demi was found unconscious on July 24 at her house.
The one who called the emergency number begged the dispatcher to get her the necessary help as soon as possible while also not turning on the sirens, for privacy reasons.
Upon arriving at the hospital, Lovato was administered Narcan, a drug made to counteract any opioids and thankfully, was able to become alert and stable soon enough.
Some reports, however, are claiming that the lifesaving drug was not given to her by the paramedics but by her friends at home prior to the ambulance arriving.
Either of these speculations is to be confirmed.
One rep for the singer did deny the early reports that claimed she overdosed on heroin, however, but the exact substance she took has not been disclosed.
What is truly important is that the rep told HollywoodLife that she is ‘awake and with her family.’
Following the health scare, her family members and close friends are pushing her to go back to rehab before it’s too late, HollywoodLife claims.
In fact, reports say Demi’s loved ones even tried to organize an intervention in the days leading to her overdosing, obviously, without any success.
Considering that Demi is in the middle of her world tour at the moment, it’s possible that she will choose not to go to rehab for now but of course, that remains to be seen.
