New details about the days leading up to Demi Lovato's alleged heroin overdose are coming to light as the singer continues to recover at a Los Angeles hospital.

TMZ reports that Lovato had been partying through the night at her $8 million Hollywood Hills home prior to her overdose, which occurred just before noon on Tuesday.

The singer's friends revived her with Narcan according to a law enforcement source and notified members of Lovato's team about the situation, but then fled before emergency workers arrived on the scene.

Multiple sources close to Demi are adamant however that the singer did not overdose from heroin, though they do admit that the singer seemed to have relapsed in the past few weeks, the MailOnline reported.

One source said that Lovato began using again after firing her sober coach earlier this month, while The Blast reports that a nurse at the hospital told police the singer had been using methamphetamine prior to her alleged overdose.

Officers on the scene reportedly took photographs of drug paraphernalia they found in the house and remnants of what looked to be illegal drugs in the home but do not plan to press any charges since they were responding to a medical call and not a criminal report.

Meanwhile, People reports that Lovato and her friends were prepared for the worst, with a source saying: 'She and her friends were on a binger the entire night. They keep Narcan on hand for such situations – they were prepared for this.

'The people she has been hanging around lately aren't her real friends – they don't have her best interests at heart. She's pushed her true friends away.'

On Tuesday afternoon, Lovato's sister Madison De La Garza was seen heading into the singer's home.

The 16-year-old actress arrived in a SUV a few hours after emergency workers arrived on the scene and took Lovato to the hospital, despite the singer's requests that she not receive treatment.

That was the only person seen heading into the house on Tuesday, where members of the media stood outside.

It is unclear how long Lovato will now stay in the hospital before returning home, or if she will head straight to a rehabilitation facility.

'Demi is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support,' said the singer's rep.

'Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.'

Mike Manning, Lovato's long-time guitarist, was one of the closest people to the singer to sound off on Tuesday, going after the group of unknown individuals who were with Lovato at the time of her alleged overdose.

'Anybody who was with Demi last night and actually calls themselves a friend should actually be disgusted with themselves. SICK!!' wrote Manning.

'You can never trust anyone. Never can know if your "friends" are truly on your side or not.'

He went on to write: The snakes are always alive. Don't be fooled. The devils lurk in the shadows. I am disgusted by the self-serving demons.'

Manning then said he planned to expose everyone who was involved, adding: 'I almost lost my sister today.'

It was previously reported that Lovato had been at a birthday party on Monday night at Saddle Ranch for one of her backup dancers.

It is unclear if those dancers returned to Lovato's home after the birthday celebration, but has seen a since-deleted Instagram story that confirms at least three members of Lovato's dance crew were in fact at Saddle ranch on Monday.

In those stories, two of the women are seen riding the mechanical bull at the restaurant and bar, but Lovato is not seen at any point in the videos and pictures shared that night.

This was all happening at the same time that Lovato was on the road with her hugely successful Tell Me You Love Me World Tour, and as her song Sober made its way up the charts.

On Sunday night, her last appearance before the overdose, Lovato forgot the words to that song.

Lovato has been incredibly open about her struggles with alcohol and drugs, and earlier this year debuted her single Sober in which she detailed her battles and path to recovery.

She performed that song on Sunday night at the California Mid-State Fair, her last appearance before being hospitalized on Tuesday.

During the performance, Lovato struggled to remember the words to her song.

Lovato will now be taking a break from the road for a bit, with LiveNation announcing that her Atlantic City performance that was scheudled for Thursday has been cancelled.

She is then off the road until September.
