Demi Lovato enters treatment for 'issues,' quits Jonas Brothers tour

Demi Lovato enters rehab, quits Jonas Brothers tour Teen star Demi Lovato has left a gig opening for the Jonas Brothers to seek help at a professional treatment center.

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" reps for the singer said in Monday.

"Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions ... she is doing just that. Demi and her family ask that the media please respect their privacy during this difficult time," the statement continued.

A fight with a female dancer on the tour was the "catalyst" that lead Lovato to seek help, TMZ says. The website also cites a source as saying drug addiction is not an issue on the table for the 18-year-old.

Lovato broke out in the Disney franchise "Camp Rock" where she starred alongside the Jonases. She's most recently led the sitcom "Sonny With a Chance" in addition to her solo musical efforts.

Oh god. I hope she's okay. Poor girl, Love her so much. <3

i think its awesome that she did get help. i never would have guessed. keep going strong demi!

I hope and pray that Demi gets better ! She's awesome and great !

I'm sure they all have issues. It's good to see she is handling hers in a better way than some.

She's done.

I work in a high school as a youth counsellor. Interesting to hear that even a Disney princess has issues with bulllying and cutting

Joe Jonas broke her will,drove her crazy.

It is being reported that Demi may not have gotten in a fight with one of the dancers but instead with a certain Jonas' girlfriend..Ashley Greene ring a bell anyone?

She's a lost girl and fame & money are worthless and doesn't guarantee she's even around people who look out for her. At 17 she got a massive tattoo on her left side. Tattoos physically damage outside and inside and by law in California since tattoos contain heavy metals, azo dyes and other toxic, poisonous cancer, birth defect and reproductive harm causing ingredients, people who damage themselves with tattoos are warned of the health risks.

I hope shes on cocaine.

DEMI GET BETTERRRR!!! *muaks* Love ya loads gurlsies!!

"She's done."

I guess the name Robert Downey Jr doesn't ring a bell right?

Having to open for those no-talent twits would give anyone "issues"!

I don't think shes using drugs but what fancies me most is the cause of the fight between her and a "dancer"? Sure this dancer has a lot of guts?

Something is very off here. She's been dealing with this "for some time"? Isn't it interesting that she's supposed to be such good friends with the Jonas Brothers, and her manager is in fact the Jonas Brother's own father. Don't even try to tell me that everyone in the Jonas family didn't know exactly what was going on with her, and yet now they are VERY quiet on the subject. Not even one word of support. Wow, with friends and management like Demi Lovato's got, no wonder she has major problems!

Demi is not ok. It is NOT the Jonas family's fault. They are her co-workers not her family. Her own family should have been paying her more attention. It is not Joe's fault. He is NOT a heartbreaker or a bad guy. Joe is very sweet, kind and has a huge heart. Ashley Greene also is not to blame. She didn't take Joe away from Demi. And if Joe wasn't dating Ashley that doesn't mean he would be dating Demi. Everyone needs to stop blaming the Jonas family and Ashley. The important thing is Demi gets treatment. She has far too much talent and potential not to.

Seriously? Leave her alone! It annoys me how the media is alway on everyones case. I believe Demi's different then all those crazy teen pop stars out there. So just leave her alone! if shes having some mental illness just let her and her family deal with it. All the media is doing is making it worse! I bet if they stopped talking about it she would heal faster. Who knows if shes innocent or not, but who cares, shes like any other teenager out there. leave her alone!

I pray that she will get the help she needs to move on with her life. I know what it is like to have to deal with things at a young age. It is rough! But with the right kind of help you can learn to overcome issues. Demi stay strong, I will hold you in my prayers.

WOW!!! Who would've thought that this would happen to such a wonderful girl? I have so much respect for Demi Lovato, and she is going to be in my prayers. And I am behind her 100%. I just hope that she knows that there are so many people praying for her and are on her side. Your fans love you Demi <3

Demi is a BEAUTIFUL and talented young lady. She was wise to realize she needed help. I hope she is able to be rid of the burdens that are weighing her down. May God watch over her through her difficult time. I will be praying for Demi. I hope people realize that celeberties are people too and hateful words hurt them too.

i think, this is just my opinion but could she be pregnant or suffer from a bipolar condition? what you think?

she can take care of her self.she a responsible girl

She'll have the power to get through this, I know it. The media can be SO harsh and unbelievably unreliable. I highly doubt that the eating disorders and cutting are true. When it comes to tabloids, it'll always ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.

wow! well i hope she does better i hope!

i think that it is reallly sad and i feel terribly srry for her and her family but i have faith that everything willl be ok demi just keep ur head up :):)
