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.
