TMZ cites sources as claiming the man 'showed up to the party high, and in pretty rough shape'. His condition remains unknown. 

Social media sensation JoJo, who came out in a viral Twitter post earlier this year, is yet to address the matter publicly.

Guests at the party included JoJo's girlfriend Kylie Prew and online star Tana Mongeau. Mongeau and other guests shared pics from the party showing a rainbow-striped ice cream van and piano, and a wall decorated with hair bows.

"Being called a gay icon is the biggest honour"

Speaking to EW about Pride month this week, JoJo said: "Being called a gay icon, honestly, I think is the biggest honor.

"About a year ago, I started having all these music meetings just for fun, just getting my head where I want to go. And I told the producers, 'I want to create gay pop, and I want to have a concert for the girls and for the gays.' Turns out a year later, I am very much so gay."

Attitude has approached a rep for Jojo Siwa and the Los Angeles Police Department for comment.
