After news of Demi Lovato being hospitalized for a reported drug overdose broke earlier this week, many celebrities have been offering messages of support. However, Kelly Rowland just took things a step further by getting some temporary ink..
Lovato was reported by TMZ to be found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home Tuesday, July 24 after allegedly overdosing on heroin, but a source later denied that before refusing to disclose what the drug was. She’s currently in the hospital in stable condition.
As fans and celebs alike have been offering encouragement and prayers for Lovato’s recovery, Rowland did the same by sharing her matching temporary tattoo on her Instagram story Wednesday, July 25.
“@ddlovato I ❤ U,” Rowland said on a photo of the lion image of her tattoo, which compliments the same one Lovato has on the back of her left hand.
“… got you on my mind,” Rowland captioned a follow-up video of the tat freshly painted on her left hand, matching Lovato exactly.
Police sources told the website at the time that the “Stone Cold” singer was treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment for drug overdoses.
By Tuesday afternoon, Lovato was said to be “awake and responsive” and her team issued a statement to the website about her condition that evening.
“Demi is awake and with her family who wants 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 … ”
Apparently, an intervention was set to be staged for Lovato weeks ago, but it was not a success. Sources told TMZ Thursday that some of the singer’s team notice she was going in a bad direction and confronted her about it. They also tried to help her get sober and planned to get her into rehab.
But Lovato reportedly refused and kept partying instead. She celebrated a backup dancer’s birthday before inviting some pals back to her Hollywood pad early Tuesday morning before heading to bed. Then, at around 11 a.m. her assistant came to her room and found Lovato unresponsive before calling an ambulance.
Lovato has been open about her struggles with drug and alcohol abuse, making things plain last year in her YouTube documentary, “Simply Complicated.”
