Anyone who knows of Demi Lovato, whether they’re familiar with her artistry or not, know that the Mexican-American singer has a massive and dedicated fanbase. The singer behind hits like “Échame La Culpa” and “Sorry Not Sorry” has built a rather intimate relationship with her supporters through her music as well as through her efforts to raise mental health awareness and presence on social media. In January of this year, the Latina announced that she would provide therapy sessions to anyone attending her shows and she can often be seen engaging with her fans and offering them support on Twitter and Instagram. Her interaction with fans is high-touch. So it makes sense that during a time when things appear to be pretty dark for Lovato, her followers are turning up to not only show their support but provide her with some light.
After reports of Lovato being hospitalized surfaced, fans of the singer have started to send her love and prayers.

On Tuesday, a report by TMZ revealed that the singer was allegedly hospitalized after experiencing a suspected heroin overdose. TMZ reports that the singer was transported from her home in Los Angeles to a hospital nearby. The site has also reported that she was treated with the emergency treatment used for narcotics overdoses called Narcan. In recent years, Lovato has been open about her fight against addiction for which she at one point sought treatment in a sober living home after getting released from a rehabilitation center.
According to People.com, a source close to Lovato provided an update that she was “stable.”
Last month, Lovato revealed that she had relapsed after being 6 years of being sober from alcohol, cocaine, and Oxycontin.

Lovato disclosed to fans that she had relapsed with the release of her song and music video “Sober.” During one part of her song, Lovato apologized to her fans saying “To the ones who never left me/ We’ve been down this road before/ I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
Only two hours after news of Lovato’s condition broke, the hashtag #PrayForDemi has been tweeted 32K times and the word Sober 52K.
Celebrities have also tweeted out their support.
I’m at a loss for words. My heart literally hurts. Demi. ???????? ????

It’s truly a painful day for so many of her fans.
Demi’s fans have also started sharing moments that they felt Lovato’s music gave them strength.
In one of my darkest moments in college, Demi’s music and story was there to help me get through. I pray that she makes a full recovery soon and is able to leave this in the past. Mental health and addiction isn’t a joke. Keep praying ???? #PrayForDemi
