So sad: Demi Lovato's ex Wilmer Valderrama, 38, is reportedly "completely devastated" over her apparent overdose on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter, who is now on the third leg of her Tell Me You Love Me world tour, was reportedly taken to a Los Angeles hospital after being found unconscious at her home on Tuesday, according to NBC.

The LAPD confirmed to that authorities "responded to a medical emergency at the 8000 block of Laurel View 11:40 a.m" and the Los Angeles Fire Department said they transported a 25-year-old female patient to the hospital.

The 25-year-old star was taken from her Hollywood Home to receive treatment but her condition is now unknown.

Demi outlined her struggles with substance abuse in a new song released in June, entitled Sober. She relapsed after she left the treatment center, then entered a sober living facility for a year. "Praying for her right now, addiction is a terrifying disease".

Earlier, Dunn had urged her followers to "PLEASE PLEASE pray for my sweet niece DEMI LOVATO".
