"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." The star revealed to fans she recently relapsed in the lyrics of her new song, Sober, in June (18), apologising for letting her family and fans down. "To the ones who never left me/We’ve been down this road before/I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” she sings on the heartbreaking track. Demi was transported to a Los Angeles hospital, where she was treated with Narcan - an emergency treatment for opioid narcotic overdoses - according to Entertainment Tonight. She first sought rehabilitation treatment for her substance abuse and self-harm issues in 2011. A concert scheduled for Atlantic City, New Jersey on Thursday (26Jul18) has been canceled following her hospitalization.
