Joe Jonas is reaching out to Demi Lovato

Hours after news of the pop star's apparent overdose and subsequent hospitalization broke, the former Disney Channel star took to Twitter with a message for his close friend and ex-girlfriend. 

"Like all of you I am thinking of @DDLovato right now," Jonas wrote. "She needs our prayers and support. We all know how strong you are Demi. #prayfordemi" 

Kevin Jonas, a former member of the Jonas Brothers and Demi's Camp Rock co-star, has yet to address Tuesday's shocking update. As of now, Lovato remains hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. An eyewitness told E! News exclusively that her mother and 16-year-old sister are by her side as she continues receiving treatment. 

Demi Lovato's Quotes on Sobriety and Mental Health

Demi and Joe briefly dated in 2010, but have remained in each other's lives ever since. The DNCE rocker referred to Demi as "family" in a 2016 interview with E! News, noting, "We've known Demi for so many years. We're performed with her, toured with her. She's just incredible... I don't think of her as an ex. We're really good friends. We've gone through so much together and we're really close now."

In fact, the Jonas Brothers are credited for helping Demi get sober for the first time. As the singer's manager, John Taylor, revealed in her Simply Complicated documentary, "It was actually the Jonas Brothers waving the flag, and saw Demi veering in a different direction."
