  • Demi Lovato in May 2018

A source told ET that the 25-year-old singer is "doing much better" after her reported overdose last Tuesday. Fortunately, Demi "knows she needs to finally get serious help", a second source told Us Weekly.

The singer will now go to rehab as soon as she is released from the hospital according to TMZ. Arriving in the same place, physicians introduced her naloxone - a drug that is used for drug overdose.

On Monday, unnamed sources told CNN and Variety that the singer was still experiencing complications including nausea, vomiting and fever, leading to a longer hospitalization than expected.

At the time of this writing, Lovato's exact release date from the hospital, as well as the name and location of the rehab facility she plans to enter, have yet to be revealed. It was the reaction and actions of the bodyguard Demi, who quickly navigated in the situation, and saved her life. "Wilmer realizes the stakes are high; it's a life or death matter and addiction is a real killer".

The bodyguard reportedly rushed to Lovato's side and propped her up, then attempted to clear her airways so she could breathe.

"He fears for her well-being and knows that rehab is her best shot at recovering from her disgusting ordeal", the source continued.

Lovato, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, had celebrated six years of sobriety in March 2018. She wants to be sober.

Though Lovato previously got treatment in IL, it's unclear where she'll be treated this time around.
