DEMI LOVATO REPORTEDLY LEAVING THE HOSPITAL THIS WEEK: Demi Lovato will be leaving the hospital in the coming days, according to TMZ. The 25-year-old overdosed last week and has remained in the hospital due to complications. Demi is reportedly doing much better after suffering from extreme nausea and a high fever. A source says Demi’s team is making plans for her to head to rehab, although the decision is ultimately hers. They added that Demi didn’t get help after breaking her sobriety several months ago but her overdose seemed to have scared her enough to seek treatment.

In 2013, Jackson overdosed on Motrin.
