Disney teen sensation Demi Lovato punched her back up dancer, Alex Welch, in the face. Welch apparently had a black eye and even had to consult a plastic surgeon to make sure there would be no permanent damage to his face. The incident happened in October while the two were traveling together on a private plane for the Jonas Brother’s tour. Lovato was later charged with physical assault.
Welch has walked away with an undisclosed amount of money. His lawyer commented that the matter has been resolved “completely and amicably” suggesting Lovato gave Welch a sizeable amount.
The Disney starlet is currently in a rehab facility for emotional and physical issues. Let’s hope her future antics won’t result in more lawsuits, considering she has very young impressionable fans.
I have to admit, I love Demi Lovato. I am a grown up, but I started wihctang her with my daughter on Disney Channel a couple of years ago and she was always my favorite star of the bunch. I love her show Sonny with a Chance , it completely made me laugh out loud and I love that. I enjoyed wihctang it with my daughter, it was something we really looked forward to.As a mental health activist, when I heard of her struggles I felt truly heartbroken for her. I don’t wish any of these kinds of struggles on anyone, and I just desperately wanted for her to be well. And I could relate to some of the things they told us she was dealing with. Seriously, I rarely show much interest in celebrities, but Demi is different. =) I haven’t gone scouring for information about her and I haven’t even browsed around for it. I figured it would surface eventually. I am happy to hear she is in this process of recovery, at whatever stage she may be in, everyone deserves our support for going through the process of getting well and learning to live a new life. I hope and pray that Demi will be an excellent success story to add to the list of other Recovery Warriors and that all will know of their great inner strength and support that surrounds them!Thank you for your heart-felt post.Amy K recently posted..
