Reports previously suggested that Demi had refused to tell paramedics what she'd taken when they arrived on the scene and now the 911 call of her anxious friend speaking to the ambulance service has been released.

At this stage, the woman tells the operator: "No sirens please".

"No no, this is a medical emergency".

However the emergency dispatcher insists he has no control over them and that the sirens are needed.

The caller and another man stayed on the line with the dispatcher until paramedics arrived on the scene, promising to have someone go outside to wave the ambulance down.

"I knew that I had a lot of life ahead of me, but one of the main reasons of getting sober was so that I could be around my little sister because my mom and dad (said I couldn't be around her) if I was doing stuff", she said.

Lovato, 25, was taken to hospital on Tuesday after suffering an overdose of undisclosed drugs at her Hollywood Hills home.

'The overdose has been a wake-up call to Demi that she needs to get more serious about her sobriety and is telling friends and family she will do everything it takes to get back to the incredible place she was in before she slipped'. "@ddlovato I [heart] you", she added. Prior to this, Lovato addressed rumors that she had fallen off the wagon with a new song "Sober", explaining that she had relapsed into addiction after recently celebrating six years of sobriety.

AUDIO has surfaced of the 911 call made from Demi Lovato's house on the day she overdosed.

The four-and-a-half-minute call does not include details of what led to paramedics to transport Lovato to a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday. Lovato reportedly had to be revived with the opioid treatment drug Narcan before being rushed in an ambulance to a Los Angeles area hospital. "This is obviously a huge wake-up call", a source told the publication.

In 2015 Lovato was spokeswoman for the "Be Vocal: Speak Up for Mental Health" campaign and talked to Women's Health about why she went public with her mental health issues.

Now, the singer's rep says "Demi is awake and with her family", and RadarOnline.com reports the "Skyscraper" singer will enter rehab.
