A representative of Demi disclosed to the Hollywood Reporter that the singer is awake now and with her family.
“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 and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now,” said her representative.
Demi, who has been open about her struggles with drugs and alcohol released a song titled ‘Sober’ this summer. In the ballad, she sings “Mama I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore/ And Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor. To the ones who never left me. We’ve been down this road before I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore”.
The lyrics of the song continues, ” And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again. I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human”.
Back in March, Demi also marked six years of sobriety. She was able to celebrate the milestone during the Tell Me You Love Me tour with DJ Khaled.
“Yesterday was a really big day for me. Yesterday six years ago I was drinking vodka out of a sprite bottle at nine in the morning, throwing up in the car and I just remember thinking. This is no longer cute. This is no longer fun. And I’m just like my dad. So I made changes in my life,” Demi told the sold-out New York city crowd.
The pop singer continued by setting the records straight as to why she is opening up on her story. She said, “The reason why I became so open about my story is because I know that there are people here tonight that need to ask for help and I want them to know that it’s OK. Mental health is something that we all need to talk about and we need to take the stigma away from it. So let’s raise the awareness. Let’s let everybody know it’s OK to have a mental illness and addiction problem”.
