Sean Paul has blamed the pressures of the "excessive" music industry for Demi Lovato's reported overdose.
The Confident singer was rushed to hospital last week (end29Jul18) after being found unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home, and many fellow music stars have publicly declared their support for the 25-year-old as she recovers from her alleged drug overdose.
Temperature hitmaker Sean has now followed suit, outlining the workload and pressure put on music stars.
"The music industry in itself is very excessive. We are always working in studios, performing, travelling and sometimes you feel you need a break and the break is to go towards things that don't give you a break," he told Britain's Daily Star newspaper. "I just want to send love to Demi. She's a beautiful girl and a great, great artist.
"There's no shame. It's just that some are able to realise the spiral they're getting into before it's too late. The help isn't always offered when it's needed."
Demi who had recently revealed she had relapsed after six years of sobriety, is thought to be getting better at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Her team have kept quiet since the incident, but on Sunday her backup dancer Dani Vitale wrote a note to her followers on Instagram revealing that she was not with the singer at the time but, "I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you".
She also asked for Demi's fans to think before they post negative messages, adding: "There is no need for any negativity towards the ones who care about Demi at this time. There is too much of it in this world as it is... Remember that we all love her more than we can ever put into words. Please continue to send her love during her recovery."
Actor Kelsey Grammer, who has battled his own drink and drug demons, also offered advice to the popstar during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"Forgive yourself," he answered. "That's about it. Somebody told me a long time ago, a pretty smart guy, said, 'any kind of addiction is really the result of unresolved grief,' and that has held true for me as I've gone through life ever since and that's why I give that piece of advice."
