The audio from a call made to 911 after Demi Lovato overdosed in her LA home has been released and obtained by TMZ.
In the four-minute long recording from the incident on Tuesday, a woman is heard speaking with an emergency dispatcher. The woman asks the call operator if the ambulances can arrive with “no sirens please” so as to keep the situation under raps.
The dispatcher is heard replying that this is not possible and he has no control over the sirens as “this is a medical emergency” and they need to get to the singer’s aid as quickly as possible.
The rest of the call remains mostly calm as the dispatcher directs the woman, telling her that she will need to wave down the emergency services as they arrive. The call finishes as paramedics arrive on the scene.
On Tuesday, Demi Lovato was found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home after an apparent overdose. The singer was first allegedly treated with the drug Narcan, used to treat the effects of opiod use, and was then rushed to a hospital in LA via ambulance.
TMZ reported that the star refused to tell paramedics what drugs she used by law enforcement officials originally thought the overdose was caused by heroin. It was later revealed by a source to Fox News that the drug was “not heroin” but they didn’t elaborate.
Demi is now recovering in hospital and is reported to be awake, stable and surrounded by friends and family.
“Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayer and support,” said Lovato’s rep in a statement to Fox News.
“Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
Demi has openly discussed her issues with sobriety and substance abuse in the past, including drugs and alcohol.
