This evening I am presiding over a *tender* Dirt Bag, with a healthy dash of skepticism after this first, very distressing item.

On Tuesday, reports surfaced that pop star Demi Lovato had been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering an apparent overdose. TMZ reported on the basis of a law enforcement source that Lovato had overdosed on heroin. Shortly after, People reported that, according to their own source, Lovato’s condition was stable and the overdose was not heroin related.

So the story is certainly developing and much remains to be confirmed (or not), but in the meantime well-wishers have been voicing their support for Lovato on Twitter. Here’s a taste of what they’ve been reaching out to say:

I’m trying to get sober right now. (It’s very, very new. Like, a couple days. Like, this is the first time I’m talking about it, online or IRL.) It sucks, and I admire Demi Lovato’s years of sobriety, of course, but also her honesty about her recent relapse. I hope she recovers from her OD and makes her way back to addiction recovery, as well.
