The promoter did not give details about the health status of Demi Lovato, who has remained in a rehabilitation center outside of California.
According to the website published today by celebrity news TMZ, Demi Lovato temporarily left that rehabilitation center to go to Chicago, where she will attend the consultation of a psychiatrist specializing in mental illness and the fight against addictions.
Lovato, 25, was hospitalized on July 24 in a health center in Los Angeles (California) for an alleged overdose, according to specialized media in Hollywood.
TMZ said that it was an overdose of heroin and that the artist was found unconscious by the paramedical teams that arrived at her house.
Lovato has been suffering from eating disorders for years, she has self-harmed and between 2010 and 2011 she was admitted to a rehabilitation clinic.
In June he published “Sober”, a song in which he apologized to his family for having relapsed in their addictions and “no longer being sober”.
