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?

The future of Demi Lovato’s TV show Sonny With A Chance, is up in the air. The Disney star, who entered rehab last week seeking treatment for “emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time,” was set to begin work on the show in January 2011 after returning from The Jonas Brothers Tour and holiday break. With Lovato currently in treatment for an undetermined amount of time, the show could be in jeopardy.
But now that Demi has entered a treatment center to deal with some personal issues — a rep for Disney tells us [TMZ,] “The health and well-being of Demi comes first and if we have to make other plans, we will.”
Whatever keeps Demi healthy and centered is the best thing that could happen. Hopefully she will come out of treatment and be ready to take on the world again, but if not I hope she and her family have the true courage it takes to walk away from Hollywood and stay focused on her recovery.
