Demi Lovato is reportedly going straight to rehab after she leaves hospital.

Police were called to the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer’s Hollywood home after she fell ill just before midday on Tuesday but the reason for her being taken to hospital was not immediately clear but many publications claim she had overdosed on heroin.

Lovato, who has openly spoke about cocaine and alcohol in the past and in her latest song ‘Sober’ she says she had relapsed after six years of sobriety, however, in a statement, her family said some facts have been reported incorrectly.

Now, a source has told E! News that the singer is set to go directly to a rehab facility when she leaves the hospital.

They said: “She slipped up and thought she could handle it. This is obviously a huge wake-up call.

“Demi doesn’t want to die and she’s very grateful to be alive. She will be leaving the hospital and heading straight to rehab.

“Her family has been by her side supporting her and is getting her the help she needs.”
