Lovato recently made headlines after releasing single, "Sober," where she admitted to relapsing after six years of sobriety.
TMZ added that the singer had been "struggling" in the time leading up to her upcoming tour. Her next concert was slated to be at Atlantic City Beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Thursday night.
Lovato was last seen in public on Sunday at the California Mid-State Fair alongside friend and fellow musician Iggy Azalea, Entertainment Tonight reports. Azalea recently made headlines when she vocalized her support for Lovato's honesty on "Sober."
The Grammy-nominated artist has been open about her battles with addiction, mental illness and eating disorders for years. In 2010, she entered treatment, where she was treated for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction. She relapsed after she left the treatment center, then entered a sober living facility for a year.
The singer performed the song in Lisbon, Portugal at the end of June as part of her Tell Me You Love Me World Tour. She later shared the video from the show of her struggling to hold back tears as she sang the heartbreaking lyrics.
"Tonight I took the stage, a new person with a new life," she captioned an Instagram post. "Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. It will never be forgotten."1comments
