Demi Lovato's rep has confirmed the star is now awake after being hospitalised for an apparent overdose.

“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,” Lovato’s rep said in a statement to Us Weekly. “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.”

Another insider close to Lovato revealed that her mother, Dianna De La Garza, “has been at her side since the hospitalization.”

Lovato, who first sought treatment for substance abuse issues in 2010, revealed that she had relapsed after six years of sobriety last month. She apologised to her family and friends in her emotional ballad titled “Sober,” which she released on June 21.
