    Demi, who is currently in the middle of her Tell Me You Love Me tour is now thought to be in stable condition, with reports emerging that she is ‘awake and responsive’ after what was originally reported by TMZ as a heroin overdose, but has since been retracted.

    ‘Demi is awake and with her family, who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,’ read a statement from Demi’s reps. ‘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.’
