Pop singer Demi Lovato was reportedly rushed to a hospital here after suffering a suspected drug overdose.

While media reports initially cited law enforcement sources saying it appeared to be a "heroin overdose", a source close to Lovato later denied it.

The 25-year-old was out Monday night celebrating a friend's birthday in West Hollywood. She also posted photos on Instagram of herself and others in the group. As per sources, Lovato was transported by ambulance from her home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon on Tuesday, and is currently being treated.

Paramedics reportedly found Demi unconscious when they arrived at her home. Law enforcement sources told the media that Lovato was treated with Narcan -- an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses -- at her home.

Lovato's representative reportedly said, "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy."

Hollywood celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Lily Allen, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Sam Smith and Bruno Mars have sent in love and get well soon wishes to Lovato via social media. Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra also sent her good wishes.
