Unnamed sources told NBC News that Lovato was stable and alert at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

Lovato has been open about her past battles with drugs and alcohol, posting in March that she was six years sober.

"Just officially turned 6 years sober. So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness. It IS possible," she wrote.

Lovato released a song in June called "Sober" in which she hinted at a relapse.

"Mama, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore / And Daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor / 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 in the chorus.
