ABC News is reporting that Demi Lovato is in stable condition after a suspected overdose, according to a source for People magazine.

TMZ has also reported that according to Demi's aunt, Kerissa Dunn, Demi is "awake and responsive".

Citing law enforcement officials, TMZ reported on Tuesday that pop singer Demi Lovato, 25, has been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital from her home in Hollywood Hills. 

According to TMZ's Lovato was given Narcan, a drug used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses. According to TMZ, the drug was reportedly administered prior to her being transported to the hospital.

NBC News reported that she was transported to Cedars Sinai Medical Center. According to its sources, Lovato was stable, alert and breathing. 

Lovato was reportedly unconscious when paramedics arrived at her home. 

Lovato celebrated six years of sobriety in a Twitter post in March. 

"Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible," Lovato tweeted. 

But just months later, Lovato released "Sober" as a single, opening up about her personal battle with substance abuse. In the opening chorus of the song released in June, Lovato sings, "Mommy, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore, and daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor."

As soon as Tuesday's news broke, fellow entertainers offered their support for Lovato. 

"I love @ddlovato so much. It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family," comedian Ellen DeGeneres said in a tweet.

"[I] love u @ddlovato" said singer Ariana Grande in a tweet.
