Demi Lovato may be facing a lawsuit when she gets out of rehab. The Camp Rock 2 star entered rehab after boarding a Disney tour plane in Brazil and punching back up dancer Alex Welch in the face. The confrontation came when Lovato thought Welch had snitched on her to the tour managers and her step father after a night of partying landed her in hot water.
“We will be filing a lawsuit next week,” said Donald Karpel, Welch’s lawyer. “We will be seeking punitive damages for assault, battery and for mental stress.”
When asked if Welch wants Lovato to pay for her medical bills, Karpel said: “We are exploring all of our options right now.
“After the attack, Alex had to get emergency treatment. She is now consulting a Beverly Hills ears, nose and throat plastic surgeon. “
Does this really need to go to court? Should Demi or Disney pay for her medical bills – yeah, of course (and why haven’t they already?) but a plastic surgeon? That seems excessive when there are photos of Welch smiling with Nick Jonas (and the shiner) see below – although who knows how much real damage was done.
What do you think?

Taylor Swift is being sued by her former manager Dan Dymtrow and it’s possible she could end up owing millions if a judge sides with the music talent agent. Dymtrow alleges that Swift’s parents, Scott and Andrea, dismissed him after he signed her when she was 14, spent time developing her talent and hooked Taylor up with her current record company Big Machine Records.
“They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client and subsequently signed the deal and kept his commissions for themselves,” Dymtrow attorney Fernando Pinguelo said.
Swift’s attorney begs to differ. They say he never obtained the correct legal documents to represent a minor and they fired him months before she signed on with Big Machine Records.
“For him to claim that her success and her major contracts were procured by him is ludicrous,” said Swift’s lawyer, Paul LiCalsi of Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp. “And even if there were some merit to his claims, paying him on the contract would defeat the whole purpose of the law in New York, which is to protect minors who sign contracts.”
This legal fight has been going on since 2007 and the judge has dismissed some of Dymtrow’s claims. With so much money at stake this battle is long from being over.

A 53 year old Georgia man who was previously arrested for stalking Disney star Miley Cyrus has the execs at the mouse channel so concerned for her welfare, they’ve warned the Los Angeles Police Department about his obsessive behavior. After being arrested on June 23rd for disorderly conduct on Tybee Island, where Miley has been filming ‘The Last Song’ the Georgia authorities are releasing the very disturbing statements Mark McLeod gave regarding Cyrus.
According to the police report, McLeod claimed he was “great friends with Miley” — and that Miley had “told him to come see her today.”
Cops say McLeod also said, “I will f***ing be with Miley … we’re supposed to be together and [the cops] couldn’t stop it.”
Here’s the creepiest part — cops say McLeod claimed Miley sent him “secret messages” on her television show directed only to him and that McLeod also boasted about having “thousands of pictures and letters to Miley on his computer.”
This man is mentally unstable and it’s unsettling to hear his thoughts on his imagined relationship with the teenager. Because she lives in Los Angeles, the LA police are aware of him as a precautionary measure. He is due in court in Georgia on September 1st.
Ugh. Stay safe Miley!
