Several celebrities, including recent collaborators, publicly offered support for Demi Lovato amid reports that the pop singer had been hospitalized after an apparent overdose. She was taken by ambulance from a home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon Tuesday.

A source tells Variety that she is now in "stable" condition.

Demi Lovato has always been open with fans about her struggle with depression, eating disorders and substance abuse, and its this honesty and openness that's won her famous fans and her Lovatics alike.

In 2017, a YouTube documentary chronicled her substance abuse issues, which the singer claimed began in her late teens. But last month, she released a song called "Sober", in which she sang, "I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore".

"Sober", which she released June 21, included lyrics like "I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore" and "I promise I'll get help/It wasn't my intention/I'm sorry to myself". "I wanna be a role model but I'm only human".

Demi is now awake and responsive in hospital, where her family are by her side.
