"I really think the most important thing is, you know, the respect that Demi has in the country today, is that she is so respected because she is so honest about her recovery, her relapse, and I think that that, to me, is an example of how great of a person Demi is", he notes. Yesterday, the 25-year-old singer was hospitalized for an alleged drug overdose.
"Our thoughts go out to Demi and her family", Foxsaid in a statement provided to CNN.
Lovato's concert scheduled for Thursday in Atlantic City has been canceled so the singer can recover. Their occupants did not stop to speak to reporters. "My heart hurts", she wrote in the caption. "She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family".
Lovato has been an open book since she announced in 2010 that she was checking into a rehabilitation centre to deal with an eating disorder, self-mutilation and other issues. Her "Confident" album competed for best pop vocal album at the 2017 Grammys (she lost to Adele's "25"). What Demi Lovato has said about sobriety and mental healthDemi Lovato has always been open about her struggles with substance abuse and mental health issues.
Just hours before her hospitalisation, she posted a made-up selfie to her Instagram page, which she chose to leave without a caption.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said officers were called to an address in Hollywood at around 11.40am local time.

It wasn't clear from the song whether Demi was referencing breaking her sobriety in June or in the past.
"She and her "friends" were on a binger the entire night", an insider told the magazine. "They'll tell me, 'You helped me get through this". This came after Lovato publicly celebrated six years of sobriety last March. In an interview with Jonathan Ross, she thanks her fans for being there when she was at one of her lowest points with addiction. A later update by TMZ said Lovato was treated with Narcan, a medication used for opioid overdoses. Soon enough, I was working from home and finding any excuse I could to not go out. I do what I can physically in the gym. By Wednesday morning, we learned what Demi was up to the night before her health scare. As a result, there's a lot that I didn't know during my own relapse, a year after entering rehab for alcohol addiction.
