'No sirens, please' - 911 call from Demi Lovato's reported overdose released

Friends of Demi Lovato pleaded with a 911 dispatcher to send an ambulance to her home without using sirens, according to audio released by the LAPD.

Lovato was discovered unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home by paramedics earlier this week. Emergency services reportedly told media outlets they revived her with Narcan, used to treat narcotic overdoses

In the audio clip, an unidentified associate of the 'Sorry Not Sorry' singer asks for "no sirens, please" when speaking to 911.

The dispatcher replies that he doesn't have any control over that, urging the caller, "this is definitely a medical emergency for her, we need to get there as fast as possible."

The caller remains calm, but when questioned about the patient's age, simply replies, "we really need to get someone out here."

People magazine reports friends of Lovato were concerned about an impending overdose, and had brought Narcan along to the house party the night before.

"She and her 'friends' were on a binger the entire night," a source told People.

"They keep Narcan on hand for such situations – they were prepared for this.

"The people she has been hanging around lately aren't her real friends – they don't have her best interests at heart."

A representative for the singer issued a statement saying Lovato was "awake and with family" following the incident, and asked for privacy as she focuses on her health.

Lovato has been open with her substance abuse struggles in the past - last month she released a song called 'Sober' in which she admitted to falling off the wagon after six years of sobriety.
