On Thursday (July 26), the outlet reported that members of the singer's inner circle understood that she wasn't in a good place and tried to confront her about it, but they had no success. Sources close to Lovato offered help to get her sobriety back on track with specific plans to encourage her to join a rehab program. Unfortunately, the 25-year-old refused to take their offer and went as far as insisting everything was fine. TMZ also reported that Lovato and her longtime manager, Phil McIntyre, parted ways a few months ago, but he is said to have had a hand in the proposed intervention.
It's the latest story to come out from Lovato's overdose, which took the blogosphere by storm on Tuesday afternoon. While she is currently "awake" and in "stable" condition, there is no word as to what drug was a contributing factor in her overdose. After reporting that heroin was involved, TMZ backtracked on the story after a Lovato source shut down the heroin claims and failed to elaborate on any further details.
