Sources close to Demi have denied she was using heroin, The Blast reported. Sources told the website that the incident report indicates that a hospital nurse told authorities the singer had been using methamphetamine prior to the alleged overdose.

A spokesperson for the singer told MailOnline in a statement: ‘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.’

Just last month, Demi released her latest single Sober in which she revealed how she had fallen off the wagon after six years of sobriety from drugs and alcohol.
