Filed under: Legal MattersDemi Lovato


After Demi Lovato punched dancer Alex Welch in the face on a private jet in October, she got slapped with a lawsuit.

But it is all been settled now! Welch will walk away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Welch's attorney, Donald Karpel, said, "The parties are satisfied and the dispute has been resolved amicably and completely."

Glad both of them can move on!

Demi Close To Settlement With Dancer

Filed under: Legal MattersDemi Lovato


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!

Demi Lovato's Dad Urges Scorned Dancer Not To Sue

Filed under: Demi Lovato

demis dad patrick lovato warns dancer alex welch not to sue for fight

And we're urging him to stay silent. He's treading too deeply into Michael Lohan territory.

Yesterday, it was reported that Alex Welch, the backup dancer who was on the bad end of Demi Lovato's alleged meltdown before going to rehab, is planning to sue the singer for their physical altercation.

Seeing a cue to look fatherly, Demi's dad Patrick Lovato issued a warning to the girl through the press. He said:

"Demi has really good lawyers and so does Disney, this girl shouldn't sue. She won't win. Demi is so successful and and she has plenty of money, that's why this girl would be going after her. She wouldn't do this if Demi wasn't famous."

Ah, so innocent! He has so much to learn about fame whoring.

She isn't suing Demi to get her money, just like you're not talking to the press because you're a concerned father. It's all about the attention, pops!

And if we're wrong and you truly are looking out for your baby girl, the first step would be laying off the interviews. Demi doesn't need you to speak for her. As you said, she has really good lawyers.

Just be there for her in a non-publicized way. That would help her TONS.

Punched Dancer Is Still Waiting For Demi Lovato's Apology

demi lovato

Demi Lovato, while on tour with the Jonas Brothers, punched one of her dancers, Alex Welch, in the face!

Apparently sources close to Demi are saying that she can't call Alex, since she is sequestered in treatment, but she is very sorry about what happened.

The whole thing started when Demi got in trouble the night before the fight. Tour managers on the Jonas Brothers world tour had questioned Lovato about her conduct, and Lovato suspected one of the dancers had tattled on her.

Alex said that she didn't know anything about Demi's actions and she had not said anything to the tour managers. However, apparently Demi thought she did, since the next day she walked right up to her and punched her in the face.

Now, Alex wanted to set things straight….and of course get a lawyer involved.

Let's see how it turns out! Maybe Alex will finally get her apology.

New Details On Demi's Outburst And Why Joe Broke Up With Her

Filed under: Love LineJonas BrothersDemi Lovato


It seems that Joe Jonas had known all along that Demi Lovato was a bit troubled.

New details have emerged about the incident at the airport where one of the tour members says that after backup dancer Alex Welch snitched on Demi's partying ways, Demi went ballistic. The source added, "Demi walked onto the plane, did not look at the girl, then suddenly punched her in the face and threatened her with a slew of expletives. Demi's manager asked her, 'Are you in control at all?' She said, 'Sorry, I just lost it.'"

Wow. That is definitely somebody who is not in control.

According to sources, though, Joe had seen the warning signs long before her breakdown at the airport. Demi apparently acted like a "true teenager in love," however she seemed to be "tortured" and acted like a "mess."

Even her cutting became a focal point among her peers. The source says, "It wasn't a secret. She was getting help."

Unfortunately, she clearly needed even more treatment because it got to the point where "Demi's attitude and behavior were out of control" and that's why Joe ended things with her.

Sad. This really just seems like a lost teenage girl who let the fast life get to her. We just hope she recovers well in her treatment.
