Keith Urban Offers Advice to Demi Lovato Following Overdose

Demi Lovato at the 2017 American Music Awards

Wilmer Valderrama has been lovingly dedicated to ex-girlfriend Demi Lovato ever since her heartbreaking overdose last week and he's ready to be by her side throughout her long journey of recovery.

Though doctors haven't approved her hospital release, another source close to Demi said, "She is under the care of medical experts and is expected to make a full recovery".

A source told CNN last week that Lovato plans to seek drug abuse treatment following her release.

After news of her hospitalization broke, her fans took to social media with the hashtag #HowDemiHasHelpedMe to discuss how Lovato and her music have helped them with their own struggles, according to CNN. Not only will she probably be encouraged by her family and friends, but her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama will likely be supporting her as well. Lovato has been open about her struggle with addiction for years.

An insider concurred to People, "Demi wasn't doing well over the weekend". Lovato fired Bayer just weeks before overdosing, and a source confirmed to People that the singer had recently "severed ties" with her management team and was in the midst of a downward spiral. "She came down with a fever and showed signs of an infection".

Some reports said Lovato overdosed on heroin, but a source close to the singer denied that.

Dani Vitale, both a friend and a backup dancer for Demi Lovato, is speaking out about the star's recent hospitalization.

In June, Lovato revealed in her single Sober - off of her sixth album, Tell Me You Love Me - that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety. "So many ups and downs", Lovato wrote. "He never takes credit for my sobriety", Lovato shared at the time, "but I guarantee I wouldn't be alive without him today".

In a 2017 YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated, Lovato spoke about years of substance abuse, eating disorders and drinking, saying she first started using cocaine when she was 17.
