Before entering a rehab facility, Demi Lovato punched dancer Alex Welch in the heat of the moment, so it seems obvious that a lawsuit is in the works.

Luckily, reps from both sides are moving towards a settlement.

Welch’s attorney, Donald Karpel, said:

“Alex is seeking a settlement, an apology from Demi and a donation made to a charity of her choice." He also “has faith that we will reach an amicable settlement.”

The dancer was scheduled to do an on camera interview, but did not after a request from Demi's camp to hold off until the end of negotiations.

Demi's spokesman, Jesse Derris, said:

“Demi’s attorneys have had an initial discussion with Mr. Karpel. They are exploring the possibility of an amicable resolution of this matter. We do not plan on making further public comments during this process.”

“I hope to get this settled and put this behind me,” Alex added.

We hope so too!

  4. 4

    I'm guessing the charity of Alex's choice is her hip pocket.

    Just sayin'.

    WTF….It's this girl's fault because a pampered little evil troll thinks she can do anything she wants to whomever she wants because she's a "star.". I say Alex, ream Demi for all you can get!

    Alex is full of shit! it was a tiny little black eye. there's no proof that Demi actually hit the girl. it could have been anyone. alex is a little famwhore who's 5 seconds of fame are over now. what a loser.

    Demi is a diva and a brat.
    This dancer is a famewhore. She doesn't want the money, she wants to make herself look good by settling for an apology and a charity donation. She'd like the money, but she looks good if she says she wants it to go to a better cause. Famewhore, lulz.

    15 minutes is tickin alex.



  13. 13

    That dancer just wants money and shit.. that charity thing is just PR trying to make it seem like she isn't after money or fame.. she probably deserved it..

    "I Hope this gets behind me" sounds like "I hope I get the money so I can help my family with the Christmas Shopping this season." Bitch needs to sit down she got punched cuz she obviously did something to Demi to make her do that.

    this is so stupid. if she wasn't a celeb and punched someone there would be no law suit. i dont understand how a punch in the face is really a matter that needs to be handled by court. they're teenage girls. they talk shit. and talk shit get hit. this is high school bs.

    Re: green jeans – So you're saying that doing wrong for the "right" reason is ok? Sorry but that is hypocrisy. Fact is Demi owes alex. That goes without saying. She owes her compensation and something for her troubles. But she doesn't owe her an arm and a leg. That's like trying to get a benz out of a fender bender. Thats pretty much stealing.

    Stuff like this happens all the time…Im not saying it was okay for Demi to hit Alex…but seriously?? It should not be this big of a deal…..Say your sorry and move on.



  18. 18

    WTF. Demi socked this girl in the face, it hardly calls for a lawsuit.



  19. 19

    I don't get why Alex wants a donation to a charity, sure thats nice and all but WTF getting punched in the face means you give money to charity? I don't get her.
