Demi Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital Tuesday morning after a suspected heroin overdose, TMZ reports. As of this afternoon, Lovato is now "stable," a source close to the pop star told People Magazine.

According to TMZ's sources, the paramedics found the 25-year-old unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home at 11:40 a.m. and was administered Narcan, an emergency opioid antagonist used for narcotic overdoses.

Over the years, Lovato has openly discussed her drug addiction and recovery, as well as her struggle with cutting and managing her bipolar disorder. She proudly shares her life experiences on Twitter. On March 14, the "Skyscraper" singer tweeted, "Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness."

It took her fans by surprise when she released the song "Sober" last month, in which she reveals that she had relapsed.

"Momma, I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore. Daddy, please forgive me for the spilled drinks on the floor. The ones who never left me, we've been down this road before. I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore."
