The girl that was alledgedly punched by Demi Lovato is considering taking legal action against the young star. Alex Welch was the backup dancer that was involved in the infamous scuffle, which led to Demi Lovato checking into rehab.
According to sources, a fight erupted between Demi and Alex after a night of partying by Lovato. Demi accused the dancer of telling her manager and parents about the late night activities. The fight between Demi and Alex was described as being a â€œshort, physical altercation.â€ Nonetheless, the dancer was left with a black eye and is now talking with attorneys about possible litigation.
The fight was the catalyst for Demiâ€™s trip to rehab but Lovato is reportedly suffering from more serious things than anger issues. Reports have surfaced that Demi endured ruthless bullying as a young teen. This bullying led to eating disorders and instances of cutting, which is a form of self-mutilation.
Demi is said to feel terrible about the fight with the dancer and has taken action to seek help for her issues. Is it really necessary to speak to lawyers for getting punched in the eye? That seems a bit harsh.Â What matters most is that if Demi really is dealing with severe mental issues, she is exactly where she needs to be.Â Hopefully, news of possible litigation won't derail her recovery.
