Demi Lovato made many in the industry worry after she was hospitalized for allegedly overdosing on heroin. One of her fellow stars who is heartbroken she relapsed and keeps Demi in his prayers while she battles addiction is none other than Justin Bieber.
Both Demi and Justin got famous in their teenage years and went through similar hardships, reason for which he really feels for her.
Today, paparazzi caught Justin out and about and asked his opinion on her reported overdose.
‘It’s very sad. I haven’t talked to her, but my prayers go out to her and her family for sure,’ the singer replied.
The shock of her overdose was even greater for Bieber due to the fact that he had no prior idea she was not sober anymore.
‘I thought she was sober, that’s terrible, right?’ he asked, addressing one cameraman.
Before the sad relapse that she detailed in her new song appropriately titled Sober, Demi had been drug and alcohol-free for no less than six years!
Initially, it was reported that she was taken to the hospital after overdosing on heroin and the medical specialists barely managed to revive her by using an overdose reversal drug, called Narcan.
However, The Blast later shared the news that, according to a nurse, Demi overdosed on ‘some type of methamphetamine’ but the singer refused to tell the doctors what kind of drug caused it.
One insider also told HollywoodLife that ‘She is feeling better and wants to go home but her team is encouraging her to go directly to a private out-of-state rehab where she can get the professional help that she needs. Demi is still very upset about what she has just been through, is coming to terms with what has happened, and what she needs to do now to get well.’
