Fans of the “Tell Me You Love Me” singer showed their support through the quickly trending hashtags #PrayForDemi and #StayStrongDemi.
Lovato had recently released her song “Sober,” in which she admitted to falling off the wagon after six years of sobriety. She has long battled addiction, mental illness, and disordered eating. In 2011 she entered treatment for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm, and addiction. She relapsed after leaving treatment and then lived in a sober living facility for a year.
Lovato was transported from her home in Hollywood to the hospital, where she is “stable,” according to People.
