Singer Demi Lovato was reportedly hospitalized in Southern California on Tuesday after a heroin overdose. Her condition isn't known, but TMZ reports that she's being treated with Narcan, which is a "medication created to rapidly reverse opioid overdose".

Police also confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that they responded to a call for a female victim of a possible overdose at 11:39 a.m. on Tuesday at a home on the same block as Lovato's.

Lovato had been sober for 6 years from alcohol, cocaine, and Oxycontin, but last month released a song called "Sober" revealing she was no longer sober.

Lovato has been open about her battle with addiction and has sought treatment in the past.

Lovato's self-titled album, "Demi", released in 2013. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family, ' wrote the talk show host.

Recalling how she would lie to her management and manipulate situations in order to get drugs, Demi revealed: "I wasn't ready to get sober". In March, the singer retweeted a post of an interview she gave, during which she said she was six years sober. Azalea said how proud she was of Lovato, telling Entertainment Tonight: "I was just really proud of her that she was honest, because it's really hard to be honest with yourself". In it, she sang, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again".

Ellen DeGeneres, Ariana Grande, and Brad Paisley are among those who have taken to social media to pen well wishes to the "Sober" and "Confident" artist.

This report will be updated as more information becomes available.

As noted by the website, Lovato was scheduled to perform in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Thursday, July 26.

Fox said it would pull its episode of "Beat Shazam" featuring Lovato, which was to air Tuesday night, because of the recent news. It breaks my heart that she is going through this.

"Praying for her right now", he tweeted.
