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!
