Demi Lovato remains in the hospital after suffering “complications” following last week’s apparent overdose.
“Demi wasn’t doing well over the weekend,” a source tells People. “She came down with a fever and showed signs of an infection. She is currently being treated for issues that are very common after a drug overdose. She will need to stay in the hospital for a few more days, but is expected to make a full recovery.”
A second insider adds, “It’s too soon to say what the next steps are in terms of entering treatment. … Right now everyone is focused on getting Demi physically healthy.”
Lovato is expected to make a full recovery, which she is doing with a very select group of people by her side. “It’s only family and very close, trusted friends she’s surrounding herself with right now,” a source close to the singer said. One of those “trusted” friends includes ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama.
“He has visited her a lot,” confirms the insider. “He was absolutely devastated when he heard what happened. He wants to be there to support her however he can.”
Some people close to Lovato, though, have themselves been getting the opposite of support. Lovato’s backup dancer and close friend Dani Vitale has been the subject of many fans’ ire, as it was her birthday Demi was out celebrating the Monday night before the incident. Vitale, who has been receiving death threats online, broke her silence Sunday, saying she was “not with Demi when the incident happened,” adding, “There is no need for any negativity towards the ones who care about Demi at this time.”
Despite initial reports claiming Lovato overdosed on heroin, a source close to the singer denied she was using that drug.
