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.
