More news has surfaced around Demi Lovato the Sonny with a Chance star. Alex Welch has been given a deal of six figures by Demi Lovato’s business/legal team. The punched up backup dancer that was dancing for Demi was suing claiming injuries Demi caused required plastic surgery.
The last thing Lovato needs is to go to trial. Since her entrance into rehab Demi has kept very a very low social profile and has made little or no comment in regards to these recent proceedings. The reason for this is likely due to her treatment and therapists suggestion to separate herself from the high profile celebrity life. And in the therapy setting it is recovery before life not life before recovery. It would explain why there has been no official apology from Lovato herself.
Some lawyers believe that Alex may have had a very strong case. The laws are quite simple in regards to the injury of another person. Regardless of the incident was reported to the police as a criminal charge the victim can still sue for damages. There are others that think that Demi is being taken advantage of and that there is someone looking to make a quick buck and cash in on Demi’s fame. While there is no true way to say what is the truth is as the case has been settled fans can hope nothing more will come out of the wood work and Demi will come back to explain when she is better.
Update: Celebuzz spoke to Demi’s rep and the reports of any money changing hands are false.
