Ariana Grande and other performers sent words of support Tuesday to Demi Lovato after news broke that the singer had been hospitalized for an apparent heroin overdose.

“I love u @ddlovato,” Grande wrote on Twitter, after TMZ reported that the 25-year-old singer was rushed to the hospital from her Hollywood Hills home after first responders found her unconscious.

Lovato’s aunt, Kerissa Dunn, has since posted a message on her social media account that the singer was “awake and responsive.”  (RELATED:  What Demi Lovato Did This Weekend During A Performance Will Melt Your Heart)

“My friend @ddlovato is one of the kindest, most talented people I’ve ever met. Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease. There is no one more honest or brave than this woman,” country singer Brad Paisley wrote.

Last month, Lovato broke down on stage while singing her latest hit “Sober,” in which she shared with her fans that she had recently suffered a relapse after struggling with sobriety for the last six years.

“Tonight I took the stage, a new person with a new life. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. It will never be forgotten,” the singer captioned her Instagram post.
