Demi Lovato Drops From Jonas Brothers Tour, Checks Into Rehab

The latest news about Demi Lovato created waves in the entertainment industry. Another Disney princess falls. Although the details of the news is not entirely clear, one thing is sure, 18-year old Demi Lovato is struggling with problems and it has pushed her to the brink.

News states that the young actress/singer called off an opening with the Jonas Brothers and has voluntarily checked herself into rehab. Her representative said the following in an official statement: ‘Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time.Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that and Demi and her family ask that the media please respect their privacy during this difficult time. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.'

Some reports now say that the young lady has been suffering from an eating disorder while some speculate drug or drinking problems. Her much publicized break up with Joe Jonas does not help the situation, to make the matters much worse, they are thrown together in a concert tour, performing for millions of screaming fans, made to act and pretend like everything is just fine. Obviously things aren’t fine with Demi. According to gossip website TMZ, she was recently involved in a “physical altercation” with a female member of her tour, and this incident was what pushed her to seek professional help.

Thankfully, Disney has been very understanding with her predicament, releasing a statement saying: "We support Demi's decision to put her health first, and we send her our best wishes."

Demi Lovato was a child when she was cast on "Barney and Friends". She is best known for her roles in the Disney "Camp Rock" movies and the Disney Channel TV show "Sonny With a Chance." She joins the ranks of Britney Spears, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and Lindsey Lohan, as Disney princesses pursued with sensational intrigues.

Hopefully, Demi manages to victoriously rise from this predicament.
