Lovato has always been an open when it comes to her mental health and struggles with substance abuse. Just months after celebrating six years of sobriety, she relapsed last month, revealed Lovato. Lovato admitted in June by means of new song "Sober" that she had, indeed, used again, and asked fans for understanding. But contrary to TMZ's reports, a source close to the star tells ET Canada it was not a heroin related overdose.

This report will be updated as more information becomes available. Azalea revealed to ET that she knew about Lovato's relapse and was anxious someone would use the news against her, but said ultimately, she was proud of Lovato for sharing her struggle in "Sober".

Meanwhile, Lovato's many celebrity friends have sent her messages of support through social media. I breaks my heart that she is going through this.
