"Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support", Lovato's representative said in a statement Tuesday night. She was transferred after noon Friday after being found in a Hollywood home.

The 38-year-old actor was spotted paying a visit to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday (July 25), where his 25-year-old ex-girlfriend is now being treated after a reported overdose.

However, the extent of her issues weren't fully understood until Demi - who has battled with cocaine addiction in the past - was rushed to hospital this week following a suspected overdose.

TheBlast.com reported Wednesday that "a nurse at the hospital told police Lovato was using some type of methamphetamine in the time leading up to the incident".

When the assistant couldn't rouse Lovato, she called 911.

Lovato was scheduled to perform Sunday in Toronto at RBC Echo Beach but the show is cancelled.

Just two days earlier at a concert in California, Lovato had trouble remembering the lyrics to her recently released emotional ballad "Sober" and walked off stage. "I'm touched", said Foxx, who also starred in her video for "Sorry Not Sorry".

The 25-year-old "Sorry Not Sorry" singer is "very grateful to be alive" according to E!

The network continued the statement with "our thoughts go out to Demi and her family". Lovato has openly shared her obstacles with fans throughout her recovery.

"He felt like she was always making excuses for herself, her bad behaviour and not telling him the truth about what she was up to".

They made it clear they would help her get sober again, and a plan was devised to try to get her back into rehab years after she first sought help.
