Demi Lovato was showered with prayers and well wishes from celebrities on social media Tuesday as news broke that she was hospitalized for a possible overdose.
Stars called Lovato a "friend" and prayed for her recovery.
“My friend [Demi Lovato] is one of the kindest, most talented people I’ve ever met. Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease,” country music star Brad Paisley said in a tweet. “There is no one more honest or brave than this woman.”
"I love [Demi Lovato] so much," talk show host Ellen DeGeneres said. "It breaks my heart so much that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family."
TMZ reported Lovato was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital earlier for treatment, citing law enforcement officials.
Lovato, 25, has been open about her struggles with addiction and substance abuse in the past. The singer revealed last month that she relapsed after six years of sobriety with the release of her new single "Sober."
Fans praised Lovato for being so open about her struggles.
"Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart said Lovato was "an idol" to her when she was a teenager because "she spoke so openly about mental health."
"And now she continues to inspire thousands of young men and women with her body positivity messages," Reinhart continued. "Addiction and mental illness doesn't discriminate."
Singers Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor simply expressed their love for Dovato on social media.
"Poor beautiful spirit," singer Lily Allen said. "I hope she’s ok, and that she makes a full recovery soon."
Actress Emmy Rossum said she is "praying for your strength and health" in a tweet directed at the singer.
Still others, including former Disney Channel stars, continued to wish Lovato well.
