Substance abuse is never a laughing matter, and it seems to plague the truly young and talented the hardest. Currently it is being reported that singer, actress, and former Disney star, Demi Lovato, has been hospitalized after overdosing on heroine!

Demi Lovato was rushed to an L.A. hospital after suffering what appears to be a heroin overdose … law enforcement tells TMZ.

Our sources say Demi was transported from a home in the Hollywood Hills just before noon Tuesday, and is currently being treated. We do not know her condition.

Demi has fought substance abuse for years … at one point she lived in a sober living home after getting released from a treatment center. She had been 6 years sober from alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin.

Last month she released a song called “Sober” where she revealed she had fallen off the wagon.

Demi was scheduled to go on the road this week — she has a show scheduled in Atlantic City — but our sources say she’s been struggling.

Story developing …

We knew Demi was wrestling with a few demons when we learned she had relapsed on her sobriety, but we never dreamed heroine was apart of the equation. This is all so tragic. Lovato is one truly amazing and talented young woman. We hope she pulls through this and NEVER relapses agains. Let’s all keep her in our prayers. We will keep you posted as this story continues to develop!

“Smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career,” Johnson said. “This publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn, and certainly didn’t deserve.”

Johnson went on to explain that the two Nigerian brothers hired by Smollett to carry out the hoax told police he hoped the staged attack would be financially beneficial.

“The stunt was orchestrated by Smollett because he was dissatisfied with his salary,” Johnson said.

He further shared that the Empire star was behind the threatening letter that he had previously received and when that didn’t get the reaction he wanted, Smollett paid $3,500 to Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who he knew through the hit Fox series. Detective Edward Wodnicki then went through the entire timeline, going inside the entire investigation. Smollett will be going in front of a judge at 2:30 p.m. ET.

This is overwhelming. We seriously doubt any police chief would come forward to do a press conference and state all of this so boldly if they did not have a substantial amount of evidence against Jussie. Honestly, this is heartwrenching, disappointing, confusing. Two words–Jussie, why?

More than three weeks after he alleged that he was the victim of a hate crime, actor Jussie Smollett has been arrested on suspicion of filing a false report about it, Chicago police said Thursday morning.

The “Empire” star was taken into custody around 5 a.m. CT, police said, ahead of a 1:30 p.m. bail hearing.
Smollett faces a felony charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false report claiming he was attacked by two men, including one who was masked, in the early morning of January 29 in Chicago. He alleged they yelled racist and homophobic slurs, tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown substance on him.
At the time, police said they were treating the attack against the black and gay actor as a hate crime.
But in the weeks since the alleged attack first made headlines, the narrative has unraveled with several twists, transforming him from a victim to a suspect.
Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted Wednesday that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office had approved a felony criminal charge of disorderly conduct against Smollett.
It is about to go down. Jussie we hope you are prayed up and “lawyer-ed” up!

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has been charged with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Wednesday evening.

Smollett is due in court in Chicago at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said CPD detectives will make contact with Smollett’s legal team to “negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.”

Smollett is not in custody at this time. Guglielmi told ABC News police are not actively looking for the actor because “this is not a violent crime,” but said “the longer this goes, the more we have to do what we have to do.”

Guglielmi told ABC News police do not know where Smollett is, and “his attorneys have not shared where he is at this point.”

“I know this can be difficult emotionally, and we hope he doesn’t do anything terrible. We want to make this as diplomatic as possible. In the end, this is only a class 4 felony. He will get through this and we want to make it as easy as possible for him to do it. But again, it is about accountability,” Guglielmi told ABC News.

Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment said they have no comment at this time.

Guglielmi said CPD detectives presented evidence before a Cook County grand jury Wednesday.

Smollett’s attorneys, Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson, released a statement, saying, “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Twentieth Century Fox has released the following statement, even though Deadline reports that producers are trying to figure out how to suspend his character or give him some time off. 

This entire situation can only be described in two words–confusing and debacle! We are not sure how the grand jury he is facing soon will sway, but one thing is for sure is that the public’s trust in Jussie Smollett is now shaken. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
