The Sorry Not Sorry singer, 25, has struggled with substance abuse for years. Lovato revealed in June that she had relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.

"To the ones who never left me / We've been down this road before / I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore," Lovato says in her recent single Sober off of her sixth album, Tell Me You Love Me.

Lovato has received treatment for bipolar disorder, bulimia, and substance abuse. She chronicled her daily struggles with recovery in the 2017 YouTube original documentary Simply Complicated. In the film, Lovato opened up about using cocaine for the majority of filming for her 2012 documentary Stay Strong.

She was set to play a show in Atlantic City on Thursday. She had just performed in California on Sunday.

Lovato's reps did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
