  • Demi Lovato 'awake,' with family at hospital after apparent drug overdose

As the ambulance approaches Lovato's friend asks the dispatcher if the ambulance can turn off their sirens in an apparent attempt not to attract the attention of neighbours.

The call is disconnected when the paramedics arrived. "But I can't imagine what level she's going through and what her family is going through right now". The dispatcher denied the request noting "this is a medical emergency". I don't have any control over that.

Meghan Trainor says Demi Lovato's openness about her battles and troubles helped her cope with her own struggles.

"We're like mad Fortnite players, we thought we would do a livestream, we would play Fortnite with fans and then just stream the new music", Daniel Latu, who goes by SPYCC, explained to TVNZ1's Breakfast.

On Thursday, a source close to the singer told Fox News that Lovato, 25, is recovering and that there's a "decent chance she could be discharged [from the hospital] soon".

During the call, an operator tells the caller a few times that help will be arriving with lights and sirens, and to please send someone out to wave down the driver.

It follows the claims that the "Sober" singer's pals had actually "saved Demi's life" after administering the star with Narcan, a nasal spray used to treat drug overdoses, according to US Weekly.

The emergency operator can be heard telling an unknown female caller inside Lovato's house to "hang in there".

A source told Fox News that it was "not heroin".

Demi previously attended rehab back in 2010, and recently celebrated being six years sober back in March.

Last month Lovato released the song "Sober" in which she revealed she had relapsed. "Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support", Lovato's representative said in a statement Tuesday evening.

Demi has been at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles since Tuesday afternoon but reports she is ready to leave will come as a welcome update for fans.

In 2015 Lovato was spokeswoman for the "Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health" campaign and talked to Women's Health about why she went public with her mental health issues.
