In an audio clip posted online by TMZ on Thursday, a female caller, who is believed to be a friend of Demi Lovato, asked the emergency dispatcher if the first responders could drive to the singer’s home in the Hollywood Hills without lights or sirens.
After being told to listen for sirens, the woman on the call said, “Wait, no sirens, please, right?”
The dispatcher responded, “No, no, no, this is a medical emergency. I don’t have any control over that.”
The female caller and a man stayed on the line with the dispatcher until paramedics arrived on the scene.
The “Sober” singer was rushed to an L.A. hospital after she suffered an apparent overdose. However, it is still unknown what drug the pop star had taken. While sources close to the singer are denying it was heroin, a source said that her friends used Narcan to revive her. Narcan negates the effects of opioids, of which heroin is one.
According to Lovato’s representative, the singer is in stable condition. The rep has released the following statement regarding her condition: “Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers, and support. 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.”
