Demi Has Yet to Apologize to Back-up Dancer
In case you've forgotten, Demi Lovato is still receiving treatment at a facility for what her reps are calling "emotional and physical issues." The definitive moment that led to Demi's admittance to the facility was when she punched her back-up dancer Alex Welch in the face after suspecting that Alex had told tour managers about Demi's naughty behavior the night before.
Alex said that Demi had "gotten in trouble" for her behavior the night before while on the Jonas Brothers world tour and suspected that one of the dancers told on her. She "pulled the dancers in a room and threatened: 'If I find out who told on me ...'"
Alex then claims that she had no further contact with Demi until the next day while they were on the JoBros' plane. "And [Demi] walks up and punches me and literally walked away and got in her seat," she said.
"To this day, I haven't gotten an apology. I've heard nothing," Alex tells People magazine. "That's sad if you think that person is your friend."
A source close to Demi is defending the star, explaining, "Demi hasn't been able to call Alex because she is sequestered in treatment, but multiple efforts have been made to reach out to her."
Well that's not good enough for Alex. She has already hired attorney Donald Karpel, who announced, "We have contacted the Lovato camp and we are waiting for a response. If we don't hear back, we will pursue litigation."
Come on, people! Demi is in TREATMENT! She is clearly unwell and wasn't in her right mind when she attacked Alex. Can't you just at least wait for her to finish treatment before getting lawyers involved?
