Lovato recently released a single 'Sober' where she confessed she had relapsed following six years of sobriety. The star has battled substance abuse for years and was admitted to a treatment facility in 2010 for "physical and emotional issues".
A source close to Demi has denied that the overdose was from heroin, despite law enforcement's initial claim. Friends of the singer allegedly claim there were "big warning signs for weeks" that she was struggling before the incident.
Demi allegedly refused to tell paramedics what specific drug resulted in her overdosing, and law enforcement sources claim that no drugs were seized at her home.
